A powerful formula of rainforest botanicals which are used by the shamans and herbal healers in South America.

For example one form of parasite infestation can cause Elephantitis, or Elephantiasis.

True elephantiasis is the result of a parasitic infection caused by three specific kinds of round worms. The long, threadlike worms block the body’s lymphatic system–a network of channels, lymph nodes, and organs that helps maintain proper fluid levels in the body by draining lymph from tissues into the bloodstream.

This blockage causes fluids to collect in the tissues, which can lead to great swelling, called “lymphedema.” Limbs can swell so enormously that they resemble an elephant’s foreleg in size, texture, and color. This is the severely disfiguring and disabling condition of elephantiasis.

There are a few different causes of elephantiasis, but the agents responsible for most of the elephantiasis in the world are filarial worms: white, slender round worms found in most tropical and subtropical places.

They are transmitted by particular kinds (species) of mosquitoes, that is, bloodsucking insects. Infection with these worms is called “lymphatic filariasis” and over a long period of time can cause elephantiasis. Click here for more details of Elephantiasis

Simarouba (Simarouba amara)

The main active group of chemicals in simarouba are called quassinoids which are well known to scientists. The antiprotozoal and antimalarial properties of these chemicals have been documented for many years.* Several of the quassinoids found in simarouba, such as ailanthinone, glaucarubinone, and holacanthone, are considered the plant’s main constituents and are the ones documented to be antiprotozal, anti-amebic, and antimalarial.*

Boldo (Peumus boldus)

Boldo (Peumus boldus) Boldo leaves contains a phytochemical called asaridole (which is also found in epazote). This plant chemical has been documented to possess antiparasitic, antimalarial, and vermifuge (worm-expelling) properties.*

Fedegoso (Cassia occidentalis)

Fedegoso has also been used for many types of parasitic infections for many years in the tropical countries where it grows.* In vitro research on fedegoso over the years has reported antiparasitic, insecticidal, and antimalarial properties.*

Carqueja (Baccharis genistelloides, trimera)

Several novel plant chemicals called clerodane diterpenoids have been identified in carqueja and, in 1994, scientists showed that these chemicals had maximum effects against worms.* This could possibly explain carqueja’s long history of use as an agent to expel intestinal worms.*

Quinine (Cinchona succirubra)

In European herbal medicine quinine bark is considered antiprotozoal, antispasmodic, antimalarial, a bitter tonic, and a fever-reducer.* Quinine bark has long been documented with antiparasitic and antimalarial actions in laboratory studies.*

Epazote (Chenopodium ambrosioides)

In a 1996 study, epazote was given to 72 children and adults with intestinal parasitic infections.* On average, the study reported an antiparasitic efficacy in 56% of cases. With respect to the tested parasites, epazote was reported to be 100% effective against the common intestinal parasites, Ancilostoma and Trichuris, and, 50% effective against Ascaris (round worm).* In a more recent study in 2001, thirty children with intestinal roundworms were treated with epazote. Disappearance of the ascaris eggs occurred in 86.7%, while the parasitic burden decreased in 59.5%.* In addition, this study also reported that epazote was 100% effective in eliminating the common human tapeworm (Hymenolepsis nana).*
