The following are an excerpts taken from the book The Noni Phenomenon, by Dr. Neil Solomon, who is
considered a recognized leader in medical nutrition and nutraceuticals, and is one the foremost experts
on Noni (Morinda citrifolia).

I (Dr. Neil Solomon) have researched the scientific evidence and field studies involving the island fruit
Noni to uncover its secrets as a medicinal agent. I logged many hours digging through case studies and
reports from doctors and other experts, and analyzed reports from an array of clinical trials. I also
interviewed more than 50 doctors and other health professionals who had compiled data that
collectively represented over 10,000 people who had used or were using Noni.
As I was collecting these data, one of the questions that I continually came back to was: “How can Noni
possibly help so many people with so many diverse health problems? What was its secret?” I concluded
that, indeed, it does not help everyone ‐‐ and it does not help with all health problems. However, on an
average, 78 percent of the more than 10,000 Noni users in our survey reported that it helped in some
way, including fighting cancer, heart disease, digestive disorders, diabetes, autoimmune disorders,
stroke, weight problems, and skin and hair problems. This booklet provides an overview of my findings.
Introduction ‐ Dr. Neil Solomon Noni (Morinda Citrifolia) is a fruit with extraordinary healing properties
that most North Americans have never heard of. It’s been successfully used for over 2,000 years in
Polynesia, China, India and elsewhere. Noni migrated with the inhabitants to the South Pacific islands,
Tahiti, Hawaii, Malaysia ‐ and wherever there is pollution‐free volcanic soil. Like Aloe Vera, Kelp, Papaya,
PycnogenolTM; and other botanicals, the extract of the Noni plant has been demonstrated to improve a
wide variety of health conditions.

For use in the United States, the Noni fruit is prepared primarily as a food supplement in juice form.
Although the plant is very bitter and has an adverse odor, the noni juice supplement is very palatable in
taste and smell because of the addition of natural fruit and berry juices…..
Noni’s Miraculous Health Benefits
Research indicates that Noni stimulates the immune system, regulating cell function and cellular
regeneration of damaged cells. The fact that Noni seems to operate on the very basic and critical cellular
level may explain why it’s useful for a wide variety of conditions. Dr. Richard Dicks, a clinician from New
Jersey, says, “We’re beginning to realize that we must get back to basics with our bodies. What it boils
down to is, either burn nutrients or burn your body. Noni saves our bodies by giving us the nutrients we
Actually, it has over a hundred primary and secondary applications. This booklet will focus mainly on the
primary uses. It is invaluable as a healing herb because of the following functions, which will all be
discussed in more detail:
Increases body energy.
Acts as anti‐inflammatory and anti‐histaminic agent.
Has antibacterial properties that can protect against digestive and heart damage.
Works with melatonin and serotonin to help regulate sleep, temperature and mood cycles.
Inhibits pre‐cancer function and growth of cancer tumors.
Research The following table contains statistical analysis of the data, including both primary and
secondary applications, that I obtained from surveying more than 50 doctors and other health
professionals who had taken Noni and/or given it to over 10,000 patients. It depicts the number of
people who drank Juice for 23 different conditions, the percentage that were helped, and the primary
active components (PAC) believed to be involved. It is my belief that although the PAC is the major
component, it is the total blend of all natural ingredients that result in Noni’s optimal health
Conditions Helped With Noni
*Pooled percentage of people who experienced objective and/or subjective improvement of their signs
and/or symptoms after taking noni. The majority of noni users who did not get optimal results failed to
do so because they took a lesser dose and/or took it a lesser amount of time than recommended in the
Overview of Noni’s Primary Applications
According to Steven Hall, M.D., of the state of Washington, another physician whom I interviewed and
who is a Noni juicer: “Not only does Noni provide many benefits on its own, but it also increases the
effectiveness of other treatments.” He has found that It is incredible because it offers help to people
who could not be helped by traditional medical science.”
Increased effectiveness and an alternative treatment to drugs are just two of the reasons that Noni is
such a valuable herb. Hall’s results were consistent with the previously reported positive response from
78 percent of Noni users. Noni also has the following characteristics:
It works synergistically with other food supplements and/or medications.
It probably helps with prevention, and works optimally in conjunction with other antioxidants.
It helps animals heal faster.
Dr. Schechter, director of the Natural Healing Institute in California, reports that there has been a wealth
of information supporting the traditional uses and health benefits of Noni. His work supports what the
Kahunas (traditional healers in Hawaii) have known and used beneficially for thousands of years. He
confirmed in an interview that the positive results obtained by physicians using Noni were consistent
with the results obtained by naturopathic clinicians. Dr. Schechter has treated hundreds of patients with
noni and has been very impressed with the variety of illnesses that responded to Noni.
‐It stimulates the production of T‐cells in the immune system. T‐cells play a pivotal role in fighting
‐It acts to enhance the immune system involving macrophages and/or lymphocytes, which are a vital
part of your body’s natural defenses.
‐It has been shown to combat many types of bacteria.
‐It has unique anti‐pain effects.
‐It inhibits pre‐cancer function and the growth of cancer tumors by allowing abnormal cells to function
Dr. Schechter states, “As a clinical therapist, I have seen Noni generate significant, even profound,
therapeutic benefits for both prevention and self‐help of a wide range of health problems.”
From Dr. Schechter’s list and from the information provided by the other professionals with whom I
communicated, I have determined the primary application categories, which are discussed in the
following overview. Though there are many other valuable uses of Noni, as the charts show, only those
with the most support have been included.
