Dear Tracy and Gerry,

I'm in the process of posting the following information on Gravizon on
www.AmazonFoods.com and am in conversation with Christian to get scientific

In the meantime, I hope the following are helpful.


How Amazon Herb Products Work in the Body by Christian Drapeau, M. Sc.

GravizonTM~ An Herbal Support for the Immune, Circulatory and Lymphatic Systems

Gravizon contains: Graviola, Camu Camu, Sangre de Drago, Una de gato, Pau
d'arco, Jatoba, Jurubeba, Dong quai, Chanca piedra, Alfalfa, Boldo,
Artichoke, Soy, Safflower, Tangerine Peel

The main ingredient in GravizonTM is graviola. Graviola is a medium size
shrub growing in the Amazonian jungle. The graviola tree produces a
delicious fruit commonly called paw-paw, which is widely consumed by
indigenous people.

Nearly 25 years ago it was discovered that the leaf of the graviola tree
contained natural compounds having exceptional cytotoxic activity. In other
words, they had a very strong ability to prevent abnormal cellular division.
In that sense, GravizonTM is considered a unique product for immune support,
assisting the immune system in cleaning abnormal tissue growth.

When the immune system works in this manner to "clean up" tissues, it must
be able to easily reach the target tissue and the debris must be eliminated
effectively. For this reason, in GravizonTM, graviola is blended with
RecovazonTM that contains many herbs known for their ability to stimulate
blood and lymphatic circulations, EnvirozonTM that assists liver functions,
and ArcozonTM that assists immune functions.

In addition to these herbs, GravizonTM also contains strong antioxidants
that provide protection against free radicals. For example camu camu, a small
fruit the size of a large cherry, contains up to 4,000 times the amount of
vitamin C contained in one orange. Also, sangre de drago, the sap of a tree
that is nearly 90% oligomeric proanthocyanidins, the active component in
grapeseed extract.

Therefore, GravizonTM is a unique formula designed to provide unique immune
support to assist the body in regaining and maintaining health.

Billion-dollar Drug Company Nearly Squashes Astounding Research on Natural
Cancer Killer

Colon and breast cancer conquered with miracle tree from the Amazon found to
be 10, 000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Since our inception in 1996, Health Sciences Institute has scoured the world
to find cutting-edge treatments few people have access to or have even heard
about. And sometimes, what we uncover startles even the medical mavericks on
our board. Two months ago, we learned about an astounding cancer-fighting
tree from the Amazon that has literally sent shock waves through the HSI

Today, the future of cancer treatment and the chances of survival look more
promising than ever. There's a healing tree that grows deep within the
Amazon rain forest in South America that could literally change how you, your
doctor, and possibly the rest of the world think about curing cancer. With
extracts from this powerful tree, it may now be possible to... conquer
cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that doesn't cause
extreme nausea, weight loss, and hair loss protect your immune system and evade deadly infections feel strong and healthy throughout the course of treatment boost your energy and improve your outlook on life.

Through a series of confidential communications involving a researcher from
one of America's largest pharmaceutical companies, this ancient tree's
anticancerous properties have recently come to light. Although not yet
tested in human trials, the tree has been studied in more than 20 laboratory tests since the 1970s, where it's been shown to: Effectively target and kill
malignant cells in 12 different types of cancer, including colon, breast,
prostate, lung, and pancreatic cancer; be 10,000 times stronger in killing
colon cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug ;
selectively hunt down and kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells,
unlike chemotherapy.

So why isn't every health publication extolling the benefits of this
treatment? Why hasn't it been made widely available throughout the
natural-medicine community? And, if it's only half as promising as it
appears to be, why isn't every oncologist at every major hospital insisting on using it on all his patients? Especially when you consider that since the early
1990s, extensive independent research--including research by one of today's
leading drug companies and by the National Cancer Institute--confirms that
the tree's chemical extracts attack and destroy cancer cells with lethal
precision. Graviola is 10,000 times stronger in killing colon cancer than
Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug.

The answer to these difficult questions can only be explained by recounting
a disturbing story we recently uncovered. More than anything else we've
reported on this year, the story of this Amazon cancer treatment reinforces
the need for groups like HSI and illustrates how easily our options for
medical treatment are controlled by money and power. News of this amazing
tree was nearly lost forever.

A confidential source, whose account we've been able to independently
confirm, revealed that a billion-dollar drug company in the United States
tried for nearly seven years to synthesize two of the tree's most powerful
anticancerous chemicals. In the early 1990s, behind lock and key, this
well-known drug giant began searching for a cure for cancer--while
preciously guarding their opportunity to patent it and, therefore, profit from it.

Research focused on a legendary healing tree called Graviola. Parts of the
tree--including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit, and fruit seeds--had been
used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to
treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems, and arthritis. Going on little
documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into
testing Graviola's anticancerous properties--and they were shocked by the
results. Graviola was a cancer-killing dynamo. But that's where the story of
Graviola nearly ended.

The pharmaceutical company had a big problem. They'd spent years trying to
isolate and create man-made duplicates of two of the tree's most powerful
chemicals. But they'd hit a brick wall. They couldn't replicate the
And they couldn't sell the tree extract itself profitably-because federal
law mandates that natural substances can't be patented. That meant the company couldn't protect its profits on the project it had poured millions of
dollars and nearly seven years of research into. As the dream of big profits
evaporated, testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt.

After seven frustrating years and without the promise of lucrative sales,
the company shelved the project and refused to publish its findings in an
independent journal. But one responsible researcher struggled with the
decision. while understanding the company's goal of profits, he couldn't
accept the decision to hide this unique cancer killer from the world.
Following his conscience and risking his career, he contacted a company
dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew
the whistle. They discovered that several other teams in the United States
(in addition to that of the drug company) had been testing Graviola in vitro
(in test tubes). The results supported the drug company's secret findings;
Graviola had been shown to kill cancer cells.

Graviola hunts down and destroys prostate, lung, breast, colon, and
pancreatic cancers... leaving healthy cells alone. Since November, we've
been looking closely into the research to date on Graviola. It appears one of the
first scientific references to it in the United States was by the National
Cancer Institute (NCI). In 1976, the NCI included Graviola in a
plant-screening program that showed its leaves and stems were effective in
attacking and destroying malignant cells. But the results were part of an
internal NCI report and were, for some reason, never released to the public.
Since 1976, there have been several promising cancer studies on Graviola.
However, the tree's extracts have yet to be tested on cancer patients. No
double-blind clinical trials exist, and clinical trials are typically the
benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment's value.
Nevertheless, Graviola has been shown to kill cancer cells in vitro in at
least 20 laboratory tests that our research has uncovered.

The most recent study, conducted at Catholic University of South Korea
earlier this year.

1. Revealed that two chemicals extracted from Graviola seeds showed
â?oselective cytotoxicity comparable with Adriamycinâ? for breast and colon
cancer cells. The chemicals targeted and killed malignant breast and colon
cells in a test tube--comparable to the commonly used chemotherapy drug

2. Another study, published in the Journal of Natural Products, showed that
Graviola is not only comparable to Adriamycin--but dramatically outperforms
it in laboratory tests. Results showed that one chemical found in Graviola
selectively kill red colon cancer cells at "10,000 times the potency of

3. Graviola selectively targets cancer cells leaving healthy cells
untouched. Chemotherapy indiscriminately seeks and destroys all actively
reproducing cells - even normal, healthy ones. Other promising and ongoing
research at Purdue University is supported by a grant from the National
Cancer Institute. Purdue researchers recently found that leaves from the
Graviola tree killed cancer cells "among six human-cell lines" and were
especially effective against prostate and pancreatic cancer cells.

4. In a separate study, Purdue researchers showed that extracts from the
Graviola leaves are extremely effective in isolating and killing lung cancer

5. Perhaps the most significant result of the study cited above from the
Catholic University of South Korea, and of each of the others we've found,
is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the enemy--leaving all
healthy, normal cells untouched. By comparison, chemotherapy indiscriminately seeks and destroys all actively reproducing cells--even normal hair and stomach
cells. This is what causes such often-devastating side effects as hair loss
and severe nausea. In this respect, Graviola looks to be a promising
alternative or supplement to mainstream treatments. Seven years of silence

We are continuing to work conducting ongoing research on Graviola. As more
scientific and anecdotal evidence comes to light, you'll be among the first
to hear about it. However, after seven years of silence and hidden research,
we felt it irresponsible not to bring this to you now.

Graviola fights more than cancer:
While the research on Graviola has focused on its cancer-fighting effect,
the plant has been used for centuries by medicine men in South America to treat
an astonishing number of ailments, including:
hypertension rashes arthritis high blood pressure nausea
ulcers ringworm malaria palpitations insomnia boils
influenza neuralgia rheumatism diarrhea dyspepsia
scurvy dysentery nervousness fever muscle spasms

Despite the mounting collection of laboratory tests and anecdotal reports
about this cancer-fighting dynamo, Graviola may always remain an underground
therapy! Graviola has yet to be clinically tested on animals or humans. And
because Graviola is a natural product, it can't be patented. Without the
promise of exclusive sales and high profitability, it will likely never
again draw the attention of a major drug company or research lab. So we may never see a double-blind clinical study on the tree that's reported to help defeat
cancer. But there's no doubt about it--the early laboratory tests and
anecdotal reports about Graviola are very exciting. And if you've been
diagnosed with cancer, you and your doctor should look at all the available
treatment options. Graviola may just provide the help you've been looking
for that could make all the difference in beating cancer.

GravizonTM Guidelines*

GravizonTM is an herbal support formula prepared by Amazon Herb Company
using the spagyric process. In addition to Graviola, there are other herbs in
GravizonTM, which help the body to support immune function, to detoxify, and
to drain toxins. For further support, other products are recommended as

GravizonTM: Add 1 teaspoon in a quart of purified water and sip the
mixture throughout the day.

Shipibo Treasure TeaTM: Steep 1 bag in 3 to 4 cups of purified water for
about 10 minutes and drink throughout the day. This tea energizes the body,
supports the immune system to increase the white blood cell count, helps
balance blood sugar levels, and provides antioxidant and antiviral

FiberzonTM: Thoroughly mix one packet in 8 oz. of pure water each morning
upon waking and each evening before going to bed. Use a mixer or shake
vigorously in a closed container--and drink the glass of Fiberzon water
right away. Follow this by drinking an additional 8 ox. of purified water.
Please make sure you also drink at least 6 additional glasses of water throughout the day. Fiberzon gently cleanses and restores the bodyâ?Ts intestinal hygiene.

AquazonTM: Supplement your diet with 2 capsules twice a day. AquazonTM
is a blend of wild fresh water algae and sea algae - whole foods that nourish
and energize the body with natural compounds known to boost immune function,
assist in weight control, remove toxic metals, increase energy and promote
mental clarity.

It is suggested to take at least one 8 oz. bottle of GravizonTM along with
the above products over a 4 to 6 week period. Depending on an individual's
response, a second 8 oz. bottle may be beneficial to an individual consuming
this support formula. All of these products can be taken in larger amounts
as the body tolerates them.

A word of caution: Causing cellular detoxification without adequate drainage
may result in a "healing crisis." Symptoms of this are similar to flu.
Itching and skin rashes may also occur.

GravizonTM is an herbal support formula classified as a dietary supplement.
If Hippocrates were alive, he would almost certainly have indicated this as
one that fits his quote: "Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your
