I will refrain from naming this individual for various reasons and simply call him a mate.
A mate was pulled over by police and arrested for driving whilst disqualified, not the first time for this, and, having had a holiday previously (jail time), was looking at another holiday paid for by the NSW state government. There were some medical issues and he was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with cancer, induced into a coma and given the standard cancer causing 'treatments' that the medical mafia/establishment use. This was only beneficial as it allowed him to avoid another state paid holiday.
After coming out of the coma, he realised that the 'treatment' was killing him and checked himself out of the hospital. I saw him the day after and I really do not know how he was able to check himself out of the hospital except by will alone. When I saw him, he had been driven to the place where I was at and my first impression of seeing him was that he was 'death warmed up'. I walked behind him from the car to make sure he didn't fall as he was swaying and not able to walk in a straight line. He was unable to talk above a whisper and was also unable to stop drooling. He had lost that much weight that he looked emaciated to the point of starvation.
In the loudest possible whisper he could manage he stated to me, "You were right, you were bloody right", referring to the medical mafia 'treatment' and our previous discussions about it being lethal. He further stated that he knew that if he had not have checked out of the hospital (against all advice from the medical staff) it would have killed him. Of course, the cancer would have been labelled as the 'cause of death', not the treatment.
Skip forward approximately a week and the difference was absolutely incredible. The only issue he had from the 'treatment' was that he still could not talk above a loud whisper. Everything else had improved to a point that many would call it 'miraculous'.
What made the difference ... Gumbi Gumbi.
I had known about it for a while, seen it in tablet form being bought for those with cancer, though I didn't research it myself (something that I REALLY should have done). I recently made friends with someone that has a friend with cancer, which has gone to the point where she has been told that there is nothing left to do for her. She was on 21 pharmaceuticals prior to starting the Gumbi Gumbi treatment last week. She stopped taking the pharmaceuticals once she started on the Gumbi Gumbi and is looking at doing a video diary of her treatment with friends. When I get details of it will add a link to this thread.
The new friend and I (both having long term physical conditions, > 10 years) got ourselves a supply of Gumbi Gumbi as well and started using it immediately with spectacular results. It is great for more than cancer and appears to be a panacea. I have been treating myself for a condition that I have been told is incurable and degenerative since January, 2000. It was a worsening of a condition that was caused by the treatment I received at the age of 4, as well as my treatment of my physicality (incorrect eating being a major reason - McDonalds coke, etc). The Gumbi Gumbi has accelerated my self treatment and, for the first time in 15 years, I am relatively free of pain (compared to what I am used to) without smoking copious amounts of cannabis.
Now, I am used to sleeping very few hours a day. The pain caused by physical condition interrupts sleep to the point that I have been 'diagnosed' with insomnia. It was rare that I actually got more than 2-4 hours sleep without it being 'broken/interrupted' by waking up in pain. Since taking the Gumbi Gumbi, I have had uninterrupted sleep of over 6 hours, something I could probably count on both hands having happened in the last 15 years. I even had around 10 hours sleep the second day, 6 hours at night and another 4 during the day.
I am looking into acquiring a Gumbi Gumbi tree, possibly from a nursery, though I would love a cutting or seeds directly from the tree in its natural state (the bush). So, there might be a road trip coming up.
Anyway, end of anecdotal evidence and onto some 'scientific evidence' ...

Biological and chemical examination of Pittosporum phillyraeoides
Undertaken at the Institute of Pharmacy
Department of Pharmaceutical Biology
Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University Greifswald, Germany, July 2007
The leaves of Pittosporum phillyraeoides DC var. microcarpa S. Moore or leaf extracts resp. are called “Gumby Gumby” by the Australian Aboriginals, and they are used for medical treatments. For some time now it is proclaimed on the Internet the plant has an effect on cancer and other diseases. But until now there are no scientific results to support this statement known. Biological testing of the leaves/extracts on a cellular level in vitro was not done until now. Some preliminary phytochemical investigations have been done only about 20 years ago. The diploma thesis were intended to contribute a scientific verification for the use of P. phillyraeoides and showed the following results:
Morphological examination of the leaves
The dried leaves are yellow green, long and narrow, and have a weak aromatic fragrance. They taste bitter and cause some itching of the throat. Microscopy of a cross-section of the leave shows a dorsiventral leaf structure with druses in the mesophyll.
Qualitative phytochemical analysis
During screening investigations secondary plant substances belonging to the following groups could be found:
- Saponins, probably belonging to the triterpen saponins
- The presence of saponins was confirmed by the froth test and by the blood agar test.
- Other terpenoid compounds, probably as components of essential oils or as bitter principles.
- Phenols, more detailed examination showed that they are tannins and flavonoids, but other phenols are also possible.
- The presence of cumarins seems to be possible.
With respect to the exact chemical structure of the compounds more investigations are necessary.
Quantitative phytochemical analysis
The leaf showed a small content of 1.34% tannins, calculated as pyrogallol. Also the flavonoid content, which was determined with two different methods, calculated as hyperosid, was fairly low with 0.54 and 0.54% respectively. On the other hand the content of carbohydrates was fairly high with 29.17%. Further on 4.53% protein and 6.24% lipids were found.
None of the tested extracts showed a noteworthy inhibition of the tested bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillis subtilis, Escherichia coli, Micrococcus flavus, Pseudomonas aeroginosa or of the fungus Candida maltosa.
Free radical scavenging activities
Many of the extracts showed only moderate radical binding capacity, compared to ascorbic acid. The most active extract was the methanol 80% extract.
The extracts showed in the neutral red assay weak to moderate cytotoxicity against FL cells and lung cancer cells of the cell line A427. The polar ethanolic and water extracts showed a higher cytotoxicity than the lipophilic extracts. The extracts performed with cold ethanol, hot ethanol, Amylase treatment (1 day) and methanol showed the lowest IC50-values in the range between 60 to 83 ug/ml against FL cells. The following extracts showed the strongest suppression (IC50 values in the range of 83-119 µg/ml) of the growing A427 cells: hot water, methanol, methanol 80% and cold ethanol.
Effect of selected extracts on human blood leucocytes
The extracts effective against FL and the tumor cell line A427 (tea, cold ethanol and Amylase 1 day) were also tested on primary human leucocytes. Concentrations which were highly cytotoxic for FL and tumor cells, showed a stimulating effect on the human blood cells (MTT test). Cytotoxic effects are only observed in far higher concentrations.
Immunmodulatory properties of selected extracts
The extracts with cancer cell cytotoxicity were also tested for their immunomodulatory properties. It could be shown that the extracts stimulate human blood cells to produce in vitro Tumor Necrosis Factor a up to cytotoxic concentrations.
The effects observed in the in vitro studies with various leaf extracts from phillyraeoides DC var. microcarpa S. Moore correspond to the clinical observations of the assumed therapeutical benefit of Gumby Gumby in cancer patients. At least in vitro a suppression of tumor cells was shown. Especially the Amylase treated (1day) extract, which imitates the process used by the Aboriginals for breaking down the leaves, as well as the tea, made according to Gumby Gumby Natural Therapeutic Products Ltd., were noticeable for their cytotoxic effect as well as their immune stimulating effects. Further investigations are necessary to identify the compounds which are responsible for the cancer cell cytoxicity and the immunomodulatory properties as well as to get more information about the mode of action of these natural compounds.
