Pure Red Lapacho
Prize of the South American medicine men is also called Pau d’Archo or Taheebo. To the ancient Guaranti it was Tajy, meaning strength and vigor! In one of the fascinating articles published by Washington D.C. newspaper “Spotlight” (June 8, 1981) on Red Lapacho, the following was stated: “It has been curing in short order mostly one month or less), a long list of diseases, including anemia, arteriosclerosis, asthma, bronchitis, cancer of all types, colitis, cystitis, and the list goes on.
An article in the February 1985 issue of the health magazine Lets Live stated: “Over the past 20 years reports from doctors and patients have indicated that this bark, when ingested (usually in tea form) has cured terminal leukemia, arthritis, yeast and fungus infections, arrested pain, stopped athlete’s foot and cured the common cold.”
The July f1985 issue of the Vegetarian Times stated that Red Lapacho “is currently being hailed for its effect on cancer and Candida… Traditional herbalists agree it straightens and balances the immune system.”
However, it must be noted that there are 18 varieties of Lapacho trees in South America. Only the inner lining of the bark of the Red or Purple Lapacho is considered to be effective. Since there is a great variation in the quality (and often the variety of Lapacho tree) of product being sold as Pau d’Arco , Taheebo or Lapacho, it is necessary to take great care in selecting the product to assure that one is truly obtaining pure Red or Purple Lapacho.
