Cancer-Mitigating APRICOT SEEDS

Cancer-Mitigating APRICOT SEEDS

Cancer continues to perplex and challenge both the allopathic and alternative medical fraternity as well as those with the disease. In the 21st century there is still no real curative treatment to offer. Many alternative doctors, however, treat their cancer patients with laetrile.

The vitamin B17 in apricot seeds isn’t classified as a vitamin as such. It has many other names, but we all call it “laetrile” or “amygdalin.” Laetrile comes from the Latin words for the stereochemistry of the molecule, laevorotatory, and mandelonitrile, or the chemical identity.

Healthy cells contain rhodanese, an enzyme that’s not found in cancer cells. Cancer cells have beta-glucosidase. Rhodanese has the ability to neutralise benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide in B17. It turns these into a useful compounds that the body can use.

Laetrile also helps the body synthesise more vitamin B12. Statistics show that many people lack this vitamin. When combined with high doses of vitamin C, the nutrients create a significant synergistic power.

Laetrile therapy: Laetrile is efficient, but it shouldn’t be considered as a primary cancer treatment. The right doses can do wonders, and laetrile as a remedy deserves more attention. It’s contained in the seeds (or kernels) of apricots, plums, peaches, cherries, nectarines, avocados, apples, pears, quinces, bitter almonds, macadamia nuts as well as others. Apricot kernels are one of the richest sources of laetrile.

Healthy dosing: Experts suggest that patients eat 20-40 kernels throughout the day, and are required not to exceed that dose. Patients in remission should use at least 16 kernels.

Glucose, benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide are the three main components in laetrile. Cyanide may sound scary, but apricot kernels only contain tiny amounts of it. Cyanide is dangerous when used in large amounts but, when used in tiny amounts and combined with other compounds, it’s safe.
