Naturally, our bodies respond to toxins from our environment and food that build up inside of us. This causes our bodies immune system to stay on guard, which can result in inflammation; the root of most disease. An overactive immune system in the body leads to defense cells and hormones that damage tissues, leading to inflammatory responses like cancers, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis. Consuming pau d'arco infusions is said to relieve the pains that cancer and arthritis cause. By minimizing the response of inflammation within our bodies, we reduce our chances of developing these serious health conditions, amongst others.
Pau d’arco is said to also help in treating candida overgrowth, lupus, constipation, fibromyalgia, bacterial/viral infections, and various parasites. Pau d’arco strengthens the body’s immune system, detoxifies the liver, and contains many antioxidants. The element selenium that is present in pau d'arco, is an antioxidant that removes free radicals that damage cells and trigger disease. Lapachol and beta-lapachone are two active ingredients in pau d'arco called naphthoquinones. The power in these chemicals kill fungi, bacteria, parasites, and viruses.
In closing, Pau D'Arco is BAE y'all!
This herb brings us balance in supporting inflammation and our immune system! What more could we ask for from this power house that keeps on giving!
Aside from Pau d'Arco and other herbs listed on our page, alterations in our diets can help greatly in the attempting to stop inflammation. Taking Extra virgin olive oil, black seed oil, and coconut oil internally may be useful as well as high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. Which can be found in certain fish or taken by capsule form. Many fruits and vegetables, spices such as ginger, turmeric, and cayenne in our meals are also effective in taking in less amounts of refined carbs.
Pau D'Arco is the leading herb in our tea/infusion blend that will be launching very soon called "Willow's Brew". It is pictured in the post prior to this one.
Willow's Brew is dedicated to my great grandmother who suffered in her life from arthritis pain, eventually passing away from cancer in 2011. Her home was surrounded by willow trees. Who knew it was an herb that could of helped her! Aside from my children and I, my great grandmother, great grandfather and uncle are the reason I am passionate about what I do. I was too young to help them more than what I could do at that age. So I am now in a position to help educate others in hopes of helping as many people as I can.
Rest sweetly, Ma.
