Phyto medicines with a Bio-Chemo-Therapy action:

Plants which have a “suicide affect” on Cancer.

Fresh plants contain thousands of vitamins which are able to activate our immune system against germs, viruses or tumour cells, or even to induce apoptosis (cell suicide or programmed cell death –SEE note) in tumour cells.


As known to Ayurvedic Indian Medicine for thousands of years, patients affected by malignant tumours must never take plant SPROUTS, as they usually contain ALL 9 ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS, FOLIC ACID and Vitamin B12, a fact that WESTERN MEDICINE also discovered recently.

The plant with anti-cancer properties (apoptosis and/or immunostimulation) must not damage human organs or tissues and must therefore be eaten fresh, as a real PHYTOTHERAPIC PRODUCT.

In many cases, it can also be taken in the form of INFUSION (TEA or DECOCTION), with or without the addition of other substances, for example alcoholic ones, according to EXPERTS’ prescriptions.

It is generally advisable to eat raw fresh plants that kill cancer cells with the addition of honey(to make them 15-17 times more efficient), provided that they have no toxic side effects, as for example the Salvia species, which must be taken in the form of TEA in order to eliminate the very dangerous Thujone

ORGANIC RAW HONEY is also  important because it protects the precious vitamins from air oxidation and gastric juices and allows them to be absorbed by patients’ intestinal walls. Furthermore, honey is a powerful antiseptic preventing germs from destroying vitamins. Several types of honey also have  real healing properties as they are obtained from flowers of medicinal plants.

Amounts of vitamins needed to induce apoptosis in a certain number of tumour cells in the laboratory without damaging healthy human cells are really very small.

The following is a report of several scientific studies showing the actual ability of these vitamins to induce cell suicide in various tumours. Amounts needed are measurable in a few dozens of micromoles/litre, i.e. picomoles/microlitres.

For apoptosis-inducing vitamins – Tatman’s fundamental scientific study is higly recommended. His book lists about 180 different isoprenoids (Tatman H., Cancer Letters 175, 2002, pp. 129-139).


The following is a collection of significant scientific papers which can help doctors choose the most  suitable plants for healing each malignant tumour http://www.erbeofficinali.org/dati/nacci/allpdf.php

The papers, almost all of them available in PDF format, can be found in the scientific literature and indicate the amounts of vitamins which are needed to induce APOPTOSIS in the cancerous cell line considered. The amounts are measurable in micromoles, i.e. micromoles/litre, i.e. nanomoles/millilitre, i.e picomoles/microlitre.The studies generally demonstrate that these plants almost never have side effects on healthy cells.

PLEASE NOTE: Reading the articles will make it clear that the amounts of vitamins needed to induce APOPTOSIS can change depending on tissular Ph, on oxygen quantity and above all on the time they remain in the tumour…

 Aloe arborescens, maybe the most famous plant among those currently studied, contains Emodin, a fluorescent anthraquinone inducing a selective apoptosis only in tumour cells.

Please find three PDFs attached at the end of this work, including Palù G.: Aloe-Emodin is a new type of anticancer agent with selective activity against neuroectodermal tumors, Cancer Research, 60, pp. 2800-2804, 2000. [PDF http://www.erbeofficinali.org/dati/nacci/allpdf.php  ]

 More details about ALOE ARBORESCENS and a strong (for stage IV cancers  ) supplement that can be easily at home from ALOE ARBORESCENS also in my book.


 By apoptosis we mean the activation of specific endonuclease which break up DNA, acting at the level of the nucleosomic sites which make up the primary structural unit of the nuclear chromatin of the cell. The induction molecules, in general deriving from plants (phyto-chemical), induce apoptosis in neoplastic cells, by activating proteolytic intracellular enzymes, which cause the deterioration by proteolysis of the vital sequence of the DNA, thus causing the death of the cell through apoptosis. In anti-neoplastic therapy these molecules have to reactivate the suicide command in the tumor cells, without causing damage to the healthy cells. Initial clinical experience has already found in Emodine, contained in Aloe, a good example of a particularly selective  molecule for certain types of human tumor, like vitamins A, D and E.

The deliberate attempt on the part of companies producing GMO to deactivate (with Fortilin, Bcl-2, Bcl-xl) this precious natural mechanism contained in plants is very serious. This phenomenon of blocking apoptosis (anti-apoptosis action), already introduced experimentally into tobacco plants by means of a virus (748,751), is according to the author a deliberate act of damage inflicted on the ecosystem by GMO: a damage which, if it is propagated to plants commonly used in the food chain, could render the cure of tumors and other serious illnesses completely impossible using the method proposed in this study.



There are also vegetable substances (and perhaps even, by means of chemical synthesis, of pharmaceutical origin) which have the ability to be absorbed by membrane molecules exclusively present in certain human tumor cells, and therefore introduced to the inside of the diseased cell.

Since all cellular membranes have the same structure, these molecules also become absorbed at the level of the lysosomial membrane, damaging it. De Duve (84) had defined lysosomes as “suicide vesicles”, and, if their membrane is damaged by toxic agents, it becomes permeable to enzymes contained in it, which thus digest the cell itself. This phenomenon is partly reminiscent of apoptosis: in practice, a cellular suicide induced by enzymes present in the DNA itself of the cell, that is to say, the activation of specific endonucleases which break up the DNA, acting at the level of nucleosomic sites which make up the primary structural unit of the nuclear chromatin of the cell (SEE also:Emodine-Aloe). But, in this case, they are extraneous molecules which interfere with the integrity of the membrane of the lysosomes, and not with the DNA structure, as for example in the case of the berries of Pittosporum tobira and Chamerops excelsa (84).


 Another form of apoptosis was discovered by a Japanese study in the case of neuroblastomas, which tend to regress when a certain amount of H-Ras protein has accumulated in cells (1042-43)


It probably occurs also in the case of glioblastomas (astrocytomas of III or IV degree of malignancy). It was observed that this kind of tumour regressed in human beings after administering plant extracts inducing the production of the same vitamin (H-Ras) in glioblastomas.(1173)


In the case of brain tumours, Morinda citrifolia extracts are particularly important (1043). which induced RAS expression and caspase-independent Neuroblastoma cell death.


Other plants such as Hypericum perforatumMelissa officinalisMomordica carantia, Betula alba,Yucca schidigera (1118and Gardenia species are currently being studied (1061)


Alpha-Bisabolol, a sesquiterpene alcohol in Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) essential oil, could be considered as a promising inducer of apoptosis in highly malignant glioma cells (1568)

A significant effect on the treatment of glioma was reported using Elemene which is found in small amounts in many essential oils: it prolonged quality survival time of 40 patients with glioma (1574)

(Tan P.: Clinical study on treatment of 40 cases of malignant brain tumor by Elemene emulsion injection, Chin. J.

Integ. Trad. Western Med, 20, pp.: 645-648, 2000) http://www.mednat.org/cancro/cancro_cervello.pdf

Note: Morinda citrifolia is inhibition of angiogenic initiation and disruption of newly established human vasculary vesels (1172).


The term Pseudo-Apoptosis, may better differentiate this mechanism from Apoptosis proper, as described above.


One particular aspect concerns medicines, phyto-medicines, vitamin substances or minerals, or of other types, which have a selective anti-tumoral action on cancer cells alone, by means of inducing apoptosis or pseudo-apoptosis like (from: http://www.erbeofficinali.org/dati/nacci/allpdf.php

Many other plants exist, and have been collected in particular extracts for therapeutic use, not only as plants with potential apoptotic and pseudo apoptotic use but also as immune stimulating plants (chap.9) and/or with an anti-oxidative action

On the basis of recent discoveries about the apoptotic induction of the seeds of Momordica charantia (639), particular interest is currently being shown to the seeds of other plants such as Helianthus annuus (sunflower); Citrus paradisi (grapefruit); Cucumis melo (melon); Cucumis sativus (cucumber); Citrullus vulgaris (water melon, red melon); Solanum lycopersicum (tomato); Solanum melongena (aubergine/eggplant); Rubus idaeus (raspberry); Actinidia chinensis (kiwi);Citrus aurantium (orange) and Vitis vinifera. 

A matter of grave concern is that large GMO seed firms are putting on the global agricultural market fruits with no seeds inside, in particular the following: Cucumis meloCitrus limonumCitrullus vulgarisSolanum lycopersicumVitis vinifera.

Seeds are deemed significant anti-cancer agents essentially because they contain the well-known vitamin B17.

Another modifications are: GMO-Brassica rapa (turnip, 968), GMO-Brassica oleracea botrytis (cauliflower,968), Prunus domestica (1013), Citrus paradisi (1014),etc….
