I was wondering if anyone here who's had any forms of cancer has ever tried or thought of trying Oleander to attack it? I've been reading quite a bit of literature that speaks of Oleander "soup" and claims are made that it helps with all forms of cancer, diabetes, and Hepatitus C.
I know Oleander is poisonous and deadly even in small portions if ingested and that you can even get poisoning just touching the plant as it can penetrate the skin, so people are recommended to wear gloves.

But what I've read goes back apparently thousands of years to folk cures, especially in Turkey and that regions that use Oleander have virtually no cancer issues.
The Oleander is boiled for four hours in a vat and then the plant material is pulled out and the liquid is strained through four colanders with paper towels as filters and then boiled again for another two hours, and then as it becomes ready, a bottle of 80 proof vodka is poured into it to act as a preservative at half/half.
From what I've read, it attacks cancer and viruses very well and the plant is rendered safe when it's extracted by water method as noted above.
Has anyone tried it or heard about it?

I have actually heard about this, apparently the oleander plant may have some benefit as a cancer treatment, but the fact that it is so deadly means that a person would have to be very careful in making the extract. If you got the proportions wrong, it could be fatal.

I just googled those two terms and found something by the American Cancer Society. Here's the link.

I would DEFINITELY suggest doing some additional research before attempting this. A fantastic service operated by your National Institutes of Health is medline plus http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/medlineplus.html and its jam packed with reputable consumer information. It's extremly easy to use.

Also, I would ask your GP about Oleander in case it's known to react to other things like medications or multivitamins.

"Oleander soup" DOES NOT cure cancer. It was shown to kill some cancer cell lines in Petri dish studies. But every human study has shown it to be a failure and appears to even shorten the lives of cancer patients. See:

Oleander does not work for cancer virus HIV or AIDS as is often falsely claimed either:

I would definitely give it a shot. In fact, here in Missouri you cannot grow Oleanders because of the cold winter temps. So I am thinking about having one in a pot so I can put it inside in the winter. I'm told that the white ones are the most potent.

Petri dish studies showed that the cardiac glycosides in oleander had an anti-cancer effect against a few cancer cell lines. But the cardiac glycosides, which are the real active component are HIGHLY toxic. These cardiac glycosides can easily kill you by bottoming out the blood pressure and stopping the heart. This is why the "oleander soup" is processed to remove the cardiac glycosides.

All actual human studies on the use of oleander for cancer proved that oleander is ineffective for the treatment of cancers.

And in the latest study it appears that the oleander actually shortened the lives of the test subjects since many died before their expected life expectancy before starting on the experimental treatment.

I recommend avoiding it altogether.
