Pau d'Arco, also called Taheebo, is known by many different names from the many different cultures it is used by. Revered for its numerous health benefits by the indigenous tribes of South America, Pau d'Arco has been used extensively to treat many health problems, and is still widely used today. This amazing herb from the inner bark of the Tabebuia heptaphylla tree has been found to have antibacterial, antiviral, anti-parasitic and antifungal properties. New Roots' Pau d'Arco Taheebo is 100% wildcrafted, grown in a high altitude mountain region and harvested ecologically.
This incredibly powerful herb has a number of anti-Candida and anti-cancer properties. It increases blood cell counts, which may boost the ability to fight many illnesses. Taheebo has been used traditionally to treat: anemia, arteriosclerosis, bronchitis and other respiratory problems, Candida, colitis, cysts/cystitis, diabetes, endometriosis, fibroids, gastritis, growths and tumors, gonorrhea, herpes virus I & II, hemorrhages, Hodgkin's, inflammation of the urinary tract, leucorrhea, lupus, Parkinson's, polyps, prostatitis, rheumatism, ring worm, and ulcers.
Perhaps Pau d'Arco's most impressive use may be its reputation for fighting cancer. Since 1960, medical doctors at the Santo Andre hospital in South America have used Pau d'Arco to treat terminally ill cancer patients. Well known herbalists report that it cures leukemia and reduces pain in cancer patients.
Researchers first attributed these reported anticancerous properties of Pau d'Arco to a phytochemical found in the bark and wood called lapachol. In a 1968 study, lapachol demonstrated highly significant activity against cancerous tumors in rats. Another research group developed a lapachol analog in 1975 which was effective in increasing lifespan by over 80% in mice inoculated with leukemic cells. In a small study in 1980 with nine patients with various cancers (liver, kidney, breast, prostate and cervix), pure lapachol demonstrated an ability to shrink tumors and achieved complete remissions in three of the patients.
Pau d'Arco is known to eliminate toxins in the body and purify the blood. In an original weight loss research study performed in Chicago in 1992, women's chronic yeast infections cleared up promptly when Pau d'Arco was added to the formula. Pau d'Arco also has anti-inflammatory characteristics, making it useful in the treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.
