Oleander Soup for the Cancer Patient’s Soul
Oleander is a plant that grows like a weed along freeways, big drought-resistant bushes that are poisonous when ingested. It’s been a cancer cure for centuries, described in the Bible as the “desert rose” and referenced in medical books since before the 17th century. Its healing properties are new to the West, however, after discovery by Turkish doctor, Huseyin Ziya Ozel, M. D., head of surgery at Mugla State Hospital in Turkey, who realized most of his cancer patients lived in zones above 600 meters (0.373 miles).
Nerium Oleander only grows in the low-altitude regions of Turkey and is rarely found at altitudes above 1,970 feet. Dr. Ozel allegedly noticed Turkish villagers publically imbibing oleander

Ozel had what he considered sufficient evidence that NOE was an effective anti-cancer agent, so he prepared to present his studies at the Fourth Balkanic Medical Days in Ankara. Turkish laws precluded him from using NOE on anyone except patients who’d exhausted all other medical treatments, but his results were so positive, he believed his findings would open a whole new chapter in cancer medicine.
As usual, his findings flew in the face of known understanding, so his work was discounted by the medical establishment. So, after attempting to gain acceptance by universities in Istanbul, he realized there would be no point in trying to be approved by the scientific community. Yet he continued to work with the burgeoning patient referrals, and his reputation as a successful cancer doctor spread.
In 1987 and 1988, European medical researchers proved that NOE was a highly-effective natural cancer therapy - while several NOE extracts were patented in Japan as research teams in Germany attempted to isolate the active ingredients to finally concluded that the effects were the results of the synergistic action of the NOE as a whole-plant product. Among the bioavailable agents identified were:
1. Alpha amyrin

Ursolic acid increases the enzymes, superoxide dismutase, glutathione reductase, glutathione s-transferase, and glutathione peroxidase and actual glutathione levels in the body substantially. This can reverse disrupted oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in the mitochondria.
Disruption of ATP causes cells to revert to enzymatic ATP production through aerobic glycolysis in the cytoplasm, a process that can convert normal cells into cancer cells. Therefore, it’s an increase in enzymes and glutathione that helps to reverse the disrupted ATP production process to normal.
Begin with small amounts, increasing slowly as your system adapts. Begin with ¼ to ½ tsp 2 or 3 times a day after meals, and work up slowly, a week at a time, until you reach 1 Tb 3 times a day after meals. Side effects are mild, especially when compared to standard chemo or radiation, and they vary from one individual to another. Some report little or no side effects.
Typical side effects for those who do experience them can include mild fever, headache, diarrhea, nausea and sometimes, vomiting. Usually these effects go away in a couple of weeks or so, as the body adjusts to the “oleander
