This ‘leaf flower’ is a cancer-killing POWERHOUSE… and here’s how it works

When Big Pharma-funded scientists are developing new drugs, they must have blinders on…

Because no matter what the disease, they only seem to come up with ONE ingredient to hit ONE target!

But trying to treat cancer is like playing a game of Whac-a-Mole.

There’s always something popping up somewhere ELSE that could take you down!

Integrative oncology, on the other hand, treats the WHOLE patient… and uses natural therapies with MANY different components that could combat cancer.

And they don’t just work in ONE WAY, either.

Some of the best natural therapies attack cancer from ALL angles!

There’s one in particular that I GUARANTEE your doc would NEVER prescribe to you…

Even though it could help you SURVIVE not only your cancer… but your conventional treatments, too!

Could this antiviral hero CANCEL cancer?

For ages, the ancient medical practice of Ayurveda has addressed a variety of health concerns with an herb called Phyllanthus amarus, whose name loosely translates to mean “bitter leaf flower.”

Not the least of those issues include those associated with the liver.

Even mainstream science has embraced P. amarus has a safe way to stave off the liver-wrecking hepatitis virus…

And some research indicates that it can also protect this vital organ from the scourge of cancer.

But that’s just the beginning…

Because its cytotoxic effects have been documented in at least 4 different types of cancer:

  1. melanoma/skin cancer
  2. lung cancer
  3. breast cancer, and
  4. prostate cancer.

A 2017 study out of Malaysia  found that P. amarus stopped breast cancer cells DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS by BLOCKING the tumor’s ability to grow blood vessels (a.k.a. angiogenesis)… and SABOTAGING the cancer cells’ ability to move, spread, and stick to a new location.

Additional research has shown that this herb’s other anti-cancer activities include ARRESTING cancer cell cycles… and TRIGGERING an innate immune response .

And that all happens WITHOUT putting normal cells in harm’s way.

  1. amarus might get its cancer-fighting power from its rich content of polyphenols – including known anti-cancer substances like gallic acid, rutin, and quercetin.

It could also be attributed to the presence of two substances known as lignans – specifically, phyllanthin and hypophyllanthin.

A 2014 study found that when isolated, both of these could beat back breast cancer, in vitro and in vivo.

And a 2019 study out of India found that a lignan-rich extract of P. amarus induced cell suicide in cervical cancer cells.

But I suspect the anti-cancer action of P. amarus results from some combination of ALL of the above… and more.

This herb has got another trick up its sleeve, too…

Research has shown that it could TRIGGER a defense mechanism against radiation-induced damage!

For any cancer patient who’s suffering through conventional treatments… and has let their doc try to BURN his way through a tumor… that could be a GODSEND.

Now, there are other species of Phyllanthus out there that you might find in the supplement aisle – namely an herb commonly known as “chanca piedra,” the “stonebreaker.”

That one is specifically used to dissolve urinary stones… and may not afford you ANY cancer protection.

So, make sure you’re getting P. amarus specifically, also known as “Luk Tai Bai” in the Thai language.

It’s often sold as a liver support supplement.
