The Powerful Disease-Fighting Benefits of Guinea Hen Weed Tea
Guinea Hen Weed Tea is an antimicrobial and immunostimulant making it a doubly powerful disease-fighting herbal tea. Often known as anamu by natives in its indigenous Amazon homeland, this super plant has been used for medicinal, herbal and culinary purposes with astounding results. Studies completed worldwide have found this unique plant contains properties that combat a variety of infections and diseases.
Guinea Hen Weed, or anamu, is composed of a variety of antioxidants such as tannins and flavenoids, naturally occurring steroids found in plant cell membranes, photochemicals and sulfuric compounds. The blend of these potent elements has never been seen in any plant known to man. Research indicates that when combined in a plant like Guinea Hen Weed, these ingredients act as an antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. As you can imagine, this phenomenal plant has huge potential in a medical context for treating or supporting existing treatments of many diseases that threaten the human population.
Lets start with one of the biggest diseases plaguing our modern world. While there are many known and suspected causes of cancer, the proliferation of free radicals and build up of inflammation are two of the worst culprits. Guinea Hen Weed may be a great preventative solution as it contains powerful levels of antioxidants. But it goes above and beyond with a combination of the sulfur compounds dibenzyl trisulfide and the photochemicals astilbin, benzldehyde and coumarin. In laboratory tests, these prove to have anti-cancerous effects. Additionally, the compounds in Guinea Hen Weed do not attack healthy cells. In a plant-screening done by the University of Illinois at Chicago, Guinea Hen Weed was named one of 34 plants that have active anti-cancer elements.
Guinea Hen Weed has even more amazing benefits. Clinical trials show that Guinea Hen Weed is a broad spectrum antimicrobial, working to fight off many strains of viruses, fungus, yeast and bacteria. Tests have shown promising results for using the plant to support people with hepatitis C, E. coli, staph infections, bovina diarrhea, pseudomonas and shingella, as well as a mycobacterium tuberculosis. Guinea Hen Weed is a cyolooxygenase-1 inhibitor that helps support joint pain. Plus, Guinea Hen Weed may have benefits for diabetics.
The next time youre in the mood for a cup of tea, make it Zokivas all-new 100% natural Guinea Hen Weed Tea. With disease-fighting properties that are second-to-none, youll be drinking to your health and vitality for a long lifetime to come.
Guinea Hen Weed [Anamu]: A Powerful Jamaican Herb to prevent & reverse Cancer.
GUINEA HEN weed, known to South Americans as anamu, is a herb that is indigenous to induce abortion in the Amazon rainforest and the tropical areas of the Caribbean, Central and South America and Africa. Its botanical name is Petiveria alliacea. In Jamaica, it has several names – guinea hen weed, guinea hen leaf, garlic weed or gully root.
Anamu has a long history of use in herbal medicine in all the countries where it grows. Herbalists and natural health practitioners have traditionally used anamu for a wide variety of conditions including arthritis, digestive disorders, infections, diabetes, cancer, pain relief and even to induce abortions.
Over the past quarter of a century, however, modern scientific research has studied anamu intensively and many biologically active compounds have been discovered in the plant: flavanoids, triterpenes, steroids, and sulfur compounds. The research published on anamu now validates many of the historical uses of this herb.
Interestingly, the researchers found that of the 20 compounds isolated from the plant – several of which had never been identified in nature before – some were similar to compounds found in garlic, a plant known to have medicinal properties.
Anamu kills cancer cells – Laboratory investigations show that anamu retards the growth of several strains of cancer and leukemia cells. In a plant screening programme performed at the University of Illinois at Chicago, more than 1,400 plant extracts were evaluated for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Anamu was one of only 34 plants identified with active properties specifically against cancer.
How does anamu work against cancer?
Several phytochemicals in anamu like astilbin and dibenzyl trisulphide have been documented to directly kill cancer cells. Research showed further that the compounds in anamu were able to differentiate between normal cells and cancer cells, killing only the cancerous cells. In addition, other substances in the herb stimulate the body’s natural defences as described below.
Anamu stimulates the immune system – Anamu has also been verified to have immunostimulant properties. It stimulates the immune system to increase its production of lymphocytes and natural killer cells – powerful disease-destroying cells. At the same time, it increases the production of interferon and interleukins – substances naturally produced by the immune system in fighting cancers and infections.
Anamu fights infections – It demonstrates broad spectrum antimicrobial properties against numerous bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeast. Compounds in anamu directly kill and or inhibits the growth of these germs. Interestingly, many alternative medicine practitioners believe that infection plays a major role in many cancers. Anamu is widely used in folk medicine for treating infections.
Anamu relieves pain – Its traditional use as a remedy for arthritis and rheumatism has been validated by clinical research that confirms its pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effect. Researchers in Sweden demonstrated its COX-1 inhibitory properties (cyclooxogenase-1 inhibitors are a new class of popular and profitable arthritis drugs). Anamu extracts have been found to relieve pain and inflammation even when applied topically to the skin.
Anamu lowers blood sugar – While anamu has not been widely researched for diabetes, it had been documented to lower blood sugar levels by more than 60 per cent in laboratory animals. This reflects herbal medical practice in Cuba where anamu has been used as an aid for diabetes for many years.
Contradictions to anamu
Anamu has been found to cause contractions of the uterus that can lead to abortions and miscarriages. As such, it should not be used by pregnant women.
Anamu contains a low concentration of a blood thinner called coumadin. People with any bleeding disorder like hemophilia or who are on blood thinning medication should consult their health-care provider before using anamu.
Directions for use
I recommend using organically grown anamu herb, free of insecticides, herbicides and other pollution.
One heaping tablespoonful of the whole powdered anamu plant is diffused in one litre of hot water. The resulting tea is drunk preferably on an empty stomach. An average dosage is four ounces (about half a cup) twice daily.
I myself was introduced to anamu by a Jamaican oncologist, (a doctor specialising in treating cancer), who had seen good results in some of her patients who used this herb. I thank her for her generosity in sharing the information. I had also heard impressive stories from Jamaican men with prostate cancer who had benefited from its use.
After doing my own research, I now use it regularly in my practice and find it to be a useful, safe, inexpensive addition to a cancer-treatment programme, as well as in the treatment of the other conditions listed above.
Reminder and warning
Many persons are desperately looking for a quick fix – a magic bullet that will miraculously cure their illness. The reality is that there is no quick fix. Like so many useful herbs, anamu will give best results when combined with optimal nutrition, nutritional supplements, exercise, detoxification, stress management and adequate restful sleep.
It must be a part of a programme of healthy lifestyles. It may also be used along with conventional medicines without disturbing their effects. If you have a serious medical condition, do not self medicate without the assistance and guidance of a qualified health practitioner.

Regular colorectal cancer screening is one of the most powerful weapons for preventing colorectal cancer. Screening is the process of looking for cancer or pre-cancer in people who have no symptoms of the disease.
From the time the first abnormal cells start to grow into polyps, it usually takes about 10 to 15 years for them to develop into colorectal cancer. Regular screening can, in many cases, prevent colorectal cancer altogether. This is because most polyps can be found and removed before they have the chance to turn into cancer. Screening can also result in finding colorectal cancer early, when it is highly curable.
People who have no identified risk factors (other than age) should begin regular screening at age 50. Those who have a family history or other risk factors for colorectal polyps or cancer, such as inflammatory bowel disease, should talk with their doctor about starting screening at a younger age and/or getting screened more frequently.
The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.
Cancer is not a disease we get because we are aging. It is a disease we get because our bodies cant handle the toxic burden it has been forced to endure.
You are Healthier than you think.
Prevent & reverse Cancer Naturally using Graviola (or Soursop). The leaves, stem, bark, and fruit of this evergreen tree contain a unique mix of chemicals called Annonaceous acetogenins. And three separate research teams found these chemicals have powerful anti-tumor properties. What’s more, these chemicals have selective toxicity against cancer cells. That means they fight cancer without harming healthy cells. And, to top it all off, they can do so at very low doses.
The first study came in 1976 during a plant-screening program by the National Cancer Institute. In this study, the researchers found that graviola leaves and stems showed toxicity against cancer cells. They did in vitro tests to determine what types of cancer the specific acetogenins would fight. They found that it was toxic to lung carcinoma, human breast, prostate adenocarcinoma, pancreatic carcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, liver cancer cell lines, human lymphoma, and MDR human breast adenocarcinoma. That’s pretty impressive.
Most students of natural health are familiar with Dr. Warburg’s name, as he won the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1931 for his discovery that cancer cells have a fundamentally different energy metabolism compared to healthy cells.
But they don’t know he was a personal friend of German physicists Albert Einstein and Max Planck, and was awarded a second Nobel Prize in 1944 but Hitler prevented him from going to Stockholm to pick it up. He is considered by most experts to be the greatest biochemist of the 20th century.
Dr. Warburg discovered that in the presence of oxygen, cancer cells overproduce lactic acid. This is known as The Warburg Effect. A cell can produce energy in two ways: aerobically, in the mitochondria, or anaerobically, in the cytoplasm, which generates lactic acid a toxic byproduct.
The former is far more efficient, capable of generating 32 times more adenosine triphosphate (ATP) than anaerobic energy generation. Dr. Warburg concluded that the prime cause of cancer was reversion of energy generation from aerobic energy generation to anaerobic fermentation.
That’s right — the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn’t cancer at all. No! It’s a syndrome you’ve probably never even heard of — called cachexia (pronounced “ka-kek-see-ah”).
And if you or someone you love is battling cancer…
You can’t afford to ignore it!
And you definitely can’t afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks. I’ll tell you more about this life-saving therapy in just a moment. But first, let me tell you just how deadly an enemy cachexia is…
The problem is, tumor cells need even more energy than regular cells, so they gobble up the little nutrition your body has while the rest of your cells starve…And while the tumor is getting strong and healthy, you’re wasting away — until your body just gives up on you.
In other words, as horrible as it sounds, most cancer patients die feeding their own tumors!
For a long time, most of the experts assumed that it only happened in the final stages of the disease. But Dr. Gold discovered that cachexia actually begins the moment the very first cancer cell appears.
He also pinpointed a specific enzyme in the liver responsible for setting off cachexia. Dr. Gold knew if he could shut down that enzyme, it would turn the tables on the stealth enemy, and stop cancer in its tracks.
The Rocket Fuel Secret
giving terminal patients a second chance at life…
Much to his surprise, the answer was an unbelievably cheap substance called HZ. But as cheap as it is, HZ is one of the most powerful natural ingredients on the planet. (In fact, it’s one of the ingredients used in rocket fuel).
Since he discovered it, dozens of studies have been done on HZ. In fact, I just did a quick count of the ones I have on my desk right now and came up with 28! And these are studies from some of the top cancer research facilities in the world, including Petrov Research Institute of Oncology in St. Petersburg, Russia and Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
All of them were published in prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals. And EVERY SINGLE ONE showed that not only is HZ completely safe…but it may very well be the only treatment on earth that gives terminal cancer patients a second chance at life.
Time and time again, the most respected cancer researchers around the world found that HZ brings cachexia to a screeching halt. The researchers were stunned when their controlled clinical trials showed nearly…
6 out of every 10 previously unresponsive patients — ones diagnosed as “factually terminal” — suddenly STOPPED showing signs of cachexia!
In other words, patients who’d been on the brink of death got their appetites back…regained the muscle and fat they’d been starved of…and started LIVING again.
HZ is truly a miracle when it comes to cachexia…but even if you’ve nipped this deadly enemy in the bud, you’ve STILL got cancer to contend with.
And THAT’S what makes the HZ secret even more remarkable! Not only does it wipe out cachexia…Studies show that HZ:
Takes control of cancer and keeps it from spreading
Halts — even reverses — tumor growth. In fact, it…
Shrinks tumors up to HALF their original size
And it doesn’t subject you to any of the toxic side effects caused by chemo and radiation.
But in a terrifying twist that may shake you to your very core, the most powerful cancer agency in the world has spent the last 30 years frantically trying to keep a lid on this breakthrough therapy. You won’t believe it when you hear about the underhanded tactics they resorted to…
But what makes this coverup even more despicable is the fact that it’s not the first time it’s happened!
Are you willing to die for
their DEADLY SIN?
I’ve spent the better part of my career researching what Nature has to offer in terms of cancer treatments. And the disturbing truth is, when it comes to natural cancer breakthroughs, the mainstream (including some of the most prominent health organizations all over the world) has a habit of botching studies, skewing results, and hiding the TRUTH about Nature’s cancer-curing potential from the people who need it most.
Think I must be mistaken? I wish I was. But facts are facts…like the ones that emerged from a 2006 survey sent by the Union of Concerned Scientists to nearly 6,000 FDA scientists. Those scientists that responded to the survey (about 1,000 of them) made some pretty shocking admissions…
Almost 20 percent admitted that they had been “asked explicitly by FDA decision makers to provide incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading information to the public, regulated industry, media, or elected/senior government officials.”
Less than 50 percent agreed that the FDA “routinely provides complete and accurate information to the public.”
47 percent admitted of being aware of instances “where commercial interests have inappropriately induced or attempted to induce the reversal, withdrawal or modification of FDA determinations or actions.”
That last admission gets right to the heart of the matter…It all boils down to one of the deadly sins — GREED.
The FDA will sell you out and pocket the change!
You see, natural therapies can’t be patented. And treatments that aren’t patented can’t make scads of money for drug companies — or the FDA, which gets a hefty paycheck every time it approves one of them.
So when a natural substance shows promise against cancer, the drug companies invest all their time and money into developing a synthetic version of it that CAN be patented. More often than not, it JUST DOESN’T WORK. But letting the public know that there’s a cheap, natural cure would mean missing out on cold, hard cash. So what happens to all those study results?
The very same thing that happened to Dr. Gold’s HZ miracle: The Big Pharma bigwigs and the government powers-that-be skew the results and sway public opinion away from the natural cure.
Half truths, misleading data, manipulated results…For all the underhanded tactics the mainstream uses against natural remedies, these miracles may as well be under lock and key.
Yes, somewhere along the line medicine has gone horribly wrong. But I became a doctor to HELP people. And the oath I took didn’t make a single mention of money or profits.
Which is why it’s become my personal mission to pick as many of those locks as I possibly can.
EXILED CANCER CURES
from the most brilliant minds in medicine!
Believe me, it hasn’t been an easy process. A lot of these things — like Dr. Gold’s HZ miracle — have been buried for decades. And many of the scientists and doctors behind them were more than a little reluctant to talk to me about their discoveries. And who can blame them?
But, in the end, most of them agreed to share the details about their cancer breakthroughs with me. Why? Because unlike the drug companies and the FDA, these doctors don’t have dollar signs in their eyes. Their mission is the same as mine — to save lives.
And the things these brilliant minds have shared with me could very well mean the difference between life and death for you or someone you love.
In order for these breakthroughs to reach as many people as possible — to save as many lives as possible — I knew they needed to be put together all in one place. A single resource…The ONLY resource anyone would ever need. So that’s exactly what I’ve done.
Everything I’ve dug up…all the natural cancer miracles I’ve learned about…I put them all into a cancer survival guide that I titled Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures TODAY.
25 hidden therapies from
around the world
Dr. Gold’s HZ miracle is — by far — one of the most exciting natural therapies I’ve come across in my research. And in Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures TODAY, I’ll tell you exactly how to get it. And I’ll also fill you in on the cover up that nearly kept it out of your hands for good.
But as promising as HZ is, I’ve also treated enough patients over the years to know that nothing works for every single person. That’s why I’m so grateful to all the doctors, scientists, and researchers who shared their cutting-edge discoveries with me…so that I could share them with YOU.
Most of these cures have been pushed so far underground that Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures TODAY is likely the only place you’ll ever hear about them. Some of the miracles that were almost buried forever include…
The acid-squelching combo that helps your blood repel cancer toxins…(It’s touted by many alternative doctors as one of the most effective treatments for bone, brain, and other fast-growing cancers.) Chapter 6
The “$3 cure” that neutralizes tumors by killing the fungus that keeps them glued together…(You probably have this little-known miracle in your kitchen pantry RIGHT NOW.) Chapter 11
The vitamin cancer-killer hiding inside apricot kernels…(Research shows it has the potential to more than double the life span of cancer victims!) Chapter 13
The cancer-obliterating miracle mushroom that’s nearly 50 times more powerful than one of the strongest medicinal mushrooms on the planet…(It’s nearly extinct, but I’ll tell you the ONE source where you can get it.) Chapter 14
The personalized, cutting-edge therapy that switches on your body’s own cancer-fighting genes…(The FDA tried to shut it down for years — but the overwhelming positive results were TOO STRONG to deny.) Chapter 17
The herbal tea curing cancer in patients with “inoperable” cases…(People who were told they had just weeks to live drank this simple tea — and lived nearly 20 more CANCER-FREE years!) Chapter 19
The plant that’s 250 times tougher on cancer than one of the most potent chemo drugs — without the body-ravaging side effects…(This is one of the ONLY treatments on Earth that’s shown any effectiveness against multi-drug resistant cancers.) Chapter 23
Every one of these cancer cures is backed by decades — even centuries — of use, not to mention solid clinical evidence.
Most Disease Is Rooted in Mitochondrial Dysfunction
Cancer is not the only outcome when mitochondrial respiration goes awry. This kind of dysfunction also plays a role in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). It’s also at play in seizure disorders, and in diabetes, obesity, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. Most of the major diseases we’re currently treating with harsh and toxic drugs can potentially be solved with proper nutritional intervention that addresses your choice of cellular fuels.
How exactly do you do that? According to Seyfried, in order to achieve nutritional ketosis, you need to reduce net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber) to less than 100 grams, probably less than 50 grams. I have a slightly different view on this, which I’ll expound on in the next section.
You also need to reduce your amino acid content. Glutamine is the most common amino acid in proteins, and besides glucose, cancer cells can use glutamine for energy and growth as well. The combination of both glucose and glutamine creates a really “supercharged system,” Seyfried notes.
In order to lower glutamine, you have to eat less protein. Also, there’s a threshold for amino acids, above which you will simply stimulate the mTOR pathway, which in conjunction with insulin may wield a more powerful influence on mitochondrial dysfunction and mitochondrial biogenesis than insulin alone.
How to Assess the Health of Your Mitochondria
How can you assess the health of your mitochondria? There are a couple of ways of doing this. Seyfried has published a paper on the glucose ketone index calculator3 (GKIC) in an open access journal, which can be accessed by anyone. You can use that calculator to assess the health and vitality of your mitochondria.
The GKIC looks at your glucose to ketone ratio. Ketones must be measured by blood, not urine, and your glucose must be entered in mmol, not in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). “When you have a glucose ratio of 1.0 or below, you know your mitochondria are in a very healthy zone,” Seyfried says.
Now, getting down to a 1.0 is quite difficult. I’m typically between 2 and 3, and my diet is about 80 percent healthy fats with minimal net carbs. You may need to do a complete fast in order to get that low. However, you don’t need to remain in that ultra-low zone for very long. On the other hand, if you have cancer, you’ll want to hit that mark as much as possible.
“You do a water fast for about three to four days, then you can take some exogenous ketones, and you can get your blood sugars way down,” Seyfried says. “To prevent cancer, you don’t have to stay there [longer than] four or five days every six months or something like this. It’s just a guide,” Seyfried says.
“Some people can get into these zones very quickly and very easily. Other people really struggle. All of this is a biomarker gauge. We’ve done some interesting linear regression analysis on survivability of mice with cancer using the GKIs, the independent variable, the glucose-ketone index.
There definitely is statistical relationship on how long you can keep your GKI [and] how long you can survive with a very aggressive cancer. Clearly, it’s just one biomarker system that allows individuals to help battle their own cancer.”
Therapeutic Ketosis Made Simpler With a Nutrient Tracker
That strategy will likely be too extreme for most folks, unless you’re faced with death or otherwise highly motivated. Rather than doing lengthy water fasting, I believe a more user-friendly strategy would be to restrict your net carbs below 50 grams per day and your protein to below 1 gram per kilogram of lean body mass. Most people eat a lot more net carbs and protein than that.
To make sure you’re actually meeting these targets you need an analytical tool to do a detailed nutritional analysis of what you’re eating. Otherwise, you really don’t know how much fat, carbs and protein you’re getting. This was my motivation for working with the developer of www.Cronometer.com/mercola, an online nutrient tracker, to create a Mercola version of the software programmed specifically for nutritional ketosis.
You can sign up and use Cronometer.com/Mercola for free. This software will make all the calculations for you, based on the parameters you enter, such as your height, weight, body fat percentage and waist circumference. You can also enter and track various biomarkers, such as fasting glucose, which is an essential measurement.
You really must keep tabs on your fasting blood sugar. Ideally, you would measure it twice a day; first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. You want to get your blood sugar below 70 mg/dL, ideally somewhere around 60.
If your fasting blood sugar is significantly higher in the morning than in the afternoon, it’s likely due to glucogenesis, which is a sign you’re not getting enough protein. You need a certain amount of amino acids or else your body will start to metabolize lean body tissue to generate them. In that process, the excess gets shuttled to your liver, which is what generates the extra glucose (hence the elevated reading in the absence of food).
How successful ? EBC46, injected directly into the tumor, can kill it in just 48 hours.

Blushwood berries are the fruit of the blushwood tree, which is known to grow in only one region of the world: the rainforests of Far North Queensland, Australia.
These tropical trees are not found anywhere else on the globe, but grow in abundance near Australias northeastern tip.
These particular trees need very niche conditions to thriveconditions which can only be found in specific portions of Far North Queensland, Australia.
Considering their usefulness as proven by the latest cancer research published in PLOS One, some are wondering if they could be grown in a greenhouse environment, so that people all over the world could benefit from their cancer-killing properties.
