“Cancer Bush” is what the local people call the Laurose flowering tree which has reportedly had more than 500 compounds identified thus far, many of which are noted for their cancer-fighting as well as immune boosting and other health-promoting qualities.
The Laurose extract was first used to treat the HIV-AIDS epidemic. A clinical test case was done on 350 HIV/AIDS patients and all of them recovered their health except 5 patients who were far too advanced when they came for treatment.
The results have been nothing less than astounding with a reported 98 percent success on HIV/AIDS and a very high success rate with cancer.
Dr. H. Zima Ozel, who re-discovered an age-old remedy, reported success rates of more than 70 percent in the 40-plus years that he has used concentrated Laurose extract in Turkey. Other practitioners are reporting more than 90 percent success when used in conjunction with an initial totally body detox, parasite cleanse and improved nutrition. [1, 2]
Dr. Mark who discovered this amazing AIDS and anti-cancer remedy reported:
“Everything still OK here and cancer patients, as well as HIV patients on the Laurose mix, are doing well. The medical doctor in Cape Town who is using the mix for all his cancer patients has continued to have good results. The oncologist where he sends his patients to was so impressed with the results that she is now using it herself for prevention. Of the cancer patients, 5 arrived when they had about a week to 10 days to live and they were too weak to keep the mix down. They died without really being able to try the extract.
“All the others are still alive, some now for nearly three years. One breast cancer patient who was given a few months to live eventually became the patient of the oncologist who is now also using the extract. She was declared free of cancer by the oncologist approximately 1 year ago and is still doing well. Others used it for a few months until their cancers were gone. One patient with a festering hole of 1cm diameter on his nose (about half a cm deep) has been using it for three months after doctors were unable to cure the tumor with radiation. The hole is now half the size and not festering anymore. It should be healed in about 3 – 6 months.
“The doctor in Cape Town whose own wife had metastasized cancer to the bones is now cancer free. It also seems to help for asthma, male impotence, and diabetes. One advanced MS patient has now used it for 2 months and is reporting that it seems to help for the pain in her legs.”
To paraphrase a department head at noted cancer research facility M. D. Anderson (famous cancer treatment hospital in Houston, Texas): “We don't know yet exactly how it works, we just know that it does work, attacking and killing bad cells — and only bad cells — and stopping their multiplication.”
Laurose extract has shown remarkable success against a very broad range of cancers, including lung, liver, leukemia, breast, brain, prostate, stomach, pancreatic and more. Laurose has been found to either eliminate or greatly alleviate the side effects of chemo when used in conjunction with chemo. However, unlike chemo, Laurose does not cause lethargy but instead usually boosts a person's energy level.
Studies seem to provide yet another important piece of evidence in understanding why Laurose has proven to be successful against a great many forms of cancer. In previous studies, Laurose extracts have been shown to:
- Inhibit angiogenesis, the process where cancer produces blood vessels and spreads;
- Inhibit the NF-kB factor in cancer cells, which is the process that cells use to protect themselves when they come under attack;
- Induce apoptosis, or normal cell death, in cancer cells;
- Greatly stimulate immune activity and cross the blood-brain-barrier in cases of brain cancer.
Dr. Johanna Budwig used several different herbal formulas along with her famous flaxseed oil and cottage cheese (Quark) for her cancer patients. Therefore, the Budwig Center in Spain also has been recommending the OPC Laurose to their patients and have experienced good results. It is also very helpful for patients that suffer from cachexia (wasting away).
Laurose extract has had success against a broad spectrum of cancers since Doctor H. Ziya Ozel began working with Laurose extracts in 1966 in Turkey. Dr. Ozel subsequently went on to successfully treat thousands of patients, many of whom were in advanced stages and who mainstream chemo and radiation treatments had failed to help. The Salud Integral Clinic in Honduras has continued that success for the past several years and also reports successes against a wide variety of cancers and other cell proliferative diseases and immune disorders. 
Pancreatic cancer, which is normally fatal within only a few months of diagnoses, yet Mr. Knocke reports that they have pancreatic cancer patients who are still alive years later, and are healthy and doing well. He also reported speaking with two of the newer pancreatic cancer patients recently and said that both of whom were alive and doing well five months after their diagnosis. One patient's cancer had stopped growing and was stabilized and another had no signs of tumors or cancer at all now.
The Laurose (Nerium) extract tested was developed by Phoenix Biotech and used a liquid carbon dioxide extraction method. A previous phase I trial of an injected aqueous Laurose extract never did reach a maximum safe level. Instead, the trial was halted when the amount injected became too large to practically exceed. It has since been determined that the aqueous extract can also be administered safely and effectively orally.
The next step in the FDA trial process would be a larger scale multi-location phase II trial. Such a trial will depend on large amounts of funding, perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars. Even if funding is found, it could take years before the new drug goes through the entire trial process and is available for cancer patients.
The good news for cancer patients is that extract is already available in supplemental form, including several versions developed by Naturopathic Ph.D. Marc Swanepoel which are made by a pharmaceutical manufacturing company in South Africa. In addition, a home version of Laurose extract can be safely made at home for only pennies.
Success rates for supplemental Laurose during the past five years have been reported to be 85 percent for Stage III and IV cancers and 95 percent for Stage I and II cancer patients when combined with healthy changes in diet, nutrition, lifestyle, and other healthy cancer-fighting and immune-boosting supplements.
Besides cancer, Laurose (OPC PLUS) extracts have been found to be very effective against HIV/AIDS, hepatitis-C, and other immune disorders. In one double-blind placebo-controlled trial conducted at a South Africa AIDS clinic, one of Dr. Swanepoel's extracts was found to be 100 percent effective in reversing HIV symptoms and low white blood cell counts.
