A note from @The_Smile_Enthuisiast, longevity coach and co-creator of our Medicinal Herbal Blends.
Pau d'Arco is a powerful medicinal herb that is widely used in the treatment of cancer, arthritis, candida, and bacterial infections. I like It because it’s an effective detoxifier and purifier of the blood.
One of the most profound benefits of Pau d'Arco is its anti-tumor compounds that can help shrink and eliminate tumours from the body. This is one of the reasons why this healing herb has become a popular herb for those battling cancer.
This medicinal herb also contains a compound called lapachol which has been shown to activate lymphocytes and white blood cells which significantly strengthens the immune system.
Medical Medium says that Pau d'Arco has the ability to provide pain relief for those suffering with nerve pain, joint pain, or muscle pain, as well as the pain that can sometimes accompany post chemotherapy. He also notes this medicinal herb is highly beneficial for those suffering with asthma, diabetes, herpes, leukemia, anemia, hepatitis, cystitis, gastritis, Hodgkin's disease, lupus, and Parkinson's disease.
Pau d'Arco is excellent at helping to remove parasites from the digestive tract and can help the body balance out from E. coli or salmonella poisoning.
I used Pau d'Arco regularly as a hot infusion when I was battling multiple strains of strep bacteria. I gently simmered 1 ounce of herb in 3 cups of filtered water (covered) for 30 minutes. Once the tea cools off completely, raw honey can be added to this infusion to take the harshness away from this medicinal herb. Consume this tea throughout the day.
