The recent discoveries of the existence of natural anticancer agents either from plants, such as Aloe, Myrrh and Magnolia, or from the human body, namely the pineal hormones, allowed the possibility to elaborate new therapeutic natural combinations as a link between the commonly used palliative and curative cancer therapies, which would have not considered in a separate manner. The present study was carried out to evaluate the influence of the spiritual status on the efficacy of a natural anticancer combination containing pineal anticancer hormones in association with Aloe, Myrrh and Magnolia extracts in a group of 70 untreatable metastatic solid tumor patients with life expectancy less than 1 year.

(as simple or complex, as sugars or starches, or as
available or unavailable), permitting new insights into the relation
between the physiologic effects of carbohydrate-rich foods
