The apricot is a species of prunus, first cultivated in China and Western Asia. Chinese consider it the symbol of education and medicine, since Confucius named it to his students. Australians use it as an aphrodisiac, as crushed and applied on the erogenous zones. English say that dreaming of apricots brings good luck.

This small tree (4-12 m tall), with oval leaves (5–9 cm long and 4–8 cm wide) and white-pinkish flowers gives birth in spring to yellow and orange fruits, with pubescent external surface and a single seed closed in a stony shell.

Although they are considered subtropical plants and they bear temperatures under -30 C, it is extremely risky to grow them up in the personal garden without professional guidance because they tent to flower very early in spring, so spring frosts may affect the tree’s life.

Not only that these fruits taste delicious, but they produce health benefits as well: Cyanogenic glycosides contained in seeds are an excellent alternative treatment for cancer, vitamin A and C are important in the correcting disequilibrium in immunity system and protecting the eyesight. They are also a good source of potassium, calcium and phosphorus.

Worldwide there are more than 1900 tones of apricots produced per year, and the leader in producing and commercialize them is Turkey.







Apricot Seeds



Conventional doctors and traditional medical practices dictate that cancer should typically be treated with chemotherapy and radiation. This has worked for patients in the past, scientists say—and natural therapies are generally not worth a second glance. Most of the time, oncology doctors may not even be willing to listen about alternative treatment methods…unless or until a cancer patient is so riddled with cancer that his chances of survival are extremely slim. At that point is when doctors apparently think that it won’t hurt to try one of those ‘wacky’ alternative options.

However, it is important that patients or their advocates urge doctors to listen much sooner than that. There is a natural cancer treatment option that has been shown to be very successful for many people with cancer, and the sooner it is started, the better it works.

The Importance of Apricot Seeds

Mention apricot seeds to traditional oncology doctors and many will not want to give attention to the matter. However, if you have your facts together and are ready with information, perhaps the doctors will be ready to listen:

Diseases and illnesses—especially cancer—have an acidic nature. Apricot kernels help lower blood acidity. Malignant tumors have a low pH and are acidic, so eating apricot kernels—which work to raise the pH of the body—will help to slow down the spread of the cancer.

Apricot seeds destroy cancerous cells. They contain cyanide, which is locked away until it encounters a cancer cell. When people with cancer eat apricot seeds, the cyanide works to destroy some of the cancerous cells in their bodies. It is typically suggested that cancer patients ingest much larger doses of apricot seeds than people who are using apricot seeds as a form of natural cancer prevention.

Apricot kernels have long been used as natural cancer prevention. Many tribes of people around the world who routinely eat apricot seeds have never had instances of cancer. So, why not have a cancer patient here in America try apricot seeds as a cure? It has a great chance of helping, so doctors should be willing to allow patients to try it.
