Also, it is widely known that this plant has many medical properties within the leaves, roots and the bark. Today, we are going to focus on the properties of only one part, and that is the leaves.
Firstly, they are very effective as a part of a cancer treatment, especially breast, lung and prostate cancer. Even though there is still no medical evidence to support this, it it considered a much cheaper option, with less side effects. To make a tea which would help you fight cancer, you need to chop 10 soursop leaves and put them in three cups of water to boil. When 2/3 of the water evaporates turn the heat off and remove the tea from the stowe. Leave it to cool and then drink it.
A UTI is a condition which affects infections connected to the ureters, urinary bladder, urethra and kidneys. If you are suffering from a urinary tract infection, take the soursop tea on a daily basis and you will notice the improvements in no time.
To cure inflamed and painful joints in the hands and feet, or further known as gout, use the soursop tea. This tea has the power to eliminate the uric acid from the blood, which is the cause for this condition.
Rheumatism is another issue that can be cured with this plant. It is similar to the gout, causing swollen and painful joints. Only, this can also affect the muscles. And here, instead of taking anti-inflammatory drugs, you can cure this condition in an easier way. Boil a couple of soursop leaves and mash them. Then, apply them to the inflamed area, twice a day.
The best thing about using these leaves is that they do not cause any side-effects, and they can be used to treat eczema too. Simply make poultice out of the soursop leaves, like in the previous example, and apply on the affected areas.
Finally, if you happen to catch a cold, flu, or any other infection or disease – use the soursop leaves. The body is under attack from these diseases because of a weakened immune system. By regularly consuming soursop tea you will not only strengthen your entire immune system, but will also help you get well faster if you are already feeling a bit under the weather.
