Chanca Piedra (Phyllanthus niruri) is one of the most important superherbs yet discovered in the entire history of herbalism due to its effect on directly fighting calcium-forming organisms (microscopic coral-like organisms that are currently termed nanobacteria). Nanobacteria have been linked to inflammation and the production of bad calcium in the human body. Nearly every disease condition known to humans, mammals, reptiles, and birds involves calcification (the overproduction of bad calcium due to the growth of nanobacteria).
Chanca Piedra's name means stone breaker due to its ability to break up calcium phosphate crystals (bad calcium). This superherb's historical use in achieving excellent gall bladder and kidney health is sizeable and well studied. In South America, this superherb is also known for many other properties including helping: malaria symptoms, fever, flu, alleviating liver stagnation, improving digestion, and even as a mild laxative and pain reliever.
A wonderful Chanca Piedra tea recipe could include:
Chanca Piedra (1 Teaspoon)
Pau d' Arco (2 1/2 Teaspoons)
Cat's Claw (1 Teaspoon)
Goji Berries (1 1/2 Tablespoons)
1 tsp vanilla powder or 1 raw vanilla bean
(This makes 2 liters of healing tea.)
For those seeking higher levels of pain relief, consider adding the powder from Mangosteen to any tea made with Chanca Piedra. When combined with Chanca Piedra, the effects of these two antioxidants may have an even more profound effect on reducing inflammation.
Extra support for the liver may be accessed by adding Sacha Jergon powder to any tea made with Chanca Piedra. This herb has traditionally been used as an activator of all other herbs, and as a liver tonic. No special preparation is required for Sacha Jerg powder; simply mix it into the room-temperature Chanca Piedra tea.
NOTE: If you are pregnant or nursing, please consult your healthcare practitioner before using this tea.
