Part used :

The Lapacho Tree (Tecoma impetiginosa or Tabebuia avellanedae), aka Pink Lapacho, Pink Ipê or Pau d’Arco, is a tree in the Bignonia family (Bignoniaceae), native to Trinidad and Tobago, but today found mostly in certain parts of South America (from northern Mexico to northern Argentina, including southeastern Bolivia). It is a conspicuous and well-known species with a long history of human use. The timber is sometimes rfered to as ‘Brazilwood’, which properly refers to the unrelated Pernambuco Tree (Caesalpinia echinata). The Lapacho Tree can reach 35 meters (115ft), with opposite, petiolate leaves 5 – 8 cm (2-3in) long and large, tubular shaped, pink or magenta, rarely white, colored flowers. The fruit consists of a narrow capsule containing several winged seeds.

The bark oft he Lapacho Tree is brownish grey, tough and hard to peel. It contains a rare combination of mineral salts and trace elements like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, chromium, silicon, manganese, molybdenum, copper, potassium, sodium, cobalt, boron, gold, silver, strontium, barium, nickel, etc., in addition to lapachol and xyloidin, two substances with distinct anti-inflammatory properties. A whole host of additional components make Lapacho bark effective in treatment of rheumatism, arteriosclerosis, asthma, bronchitis, inflammations of the digestive tract, urinary bladder and prostate, as well as varicose veins, skin disorders and slow healing, open wounds.

Medicinal use of Lapacho bark is broad and complex; the following is a excerpt from a book by the author (‚Naturheilkunde kurz und buendig‘, Sanamin Verlag, 5th edition, 2012):

Lapacho: Your Life Will Never Be the Same.

Our health, as it were, is largely determined by the quality of the fluids in our body: the blood, the juices of the lymphatic system and cellular fluids in general. Once the quality of these fluids is compromised, it is downhill with our performance and health. Our body fluids don’t lie: inadequate diet and lifestyle choices show up immediately, and eventually these body fluids, which are supposed to provide nutrients to organs and cells throughout the body, regulate our metabolism and prevent invasion by disease causing agents, become the reason for deficiencies and imbalances like digestive disorders, toxic load, fatigue and chronic conditions. We are, after all 70-80% ‘fluid‘…

And often enough, it all begins with our digestion: we may suffer from the occasional heartburn, constipation or diarrhea. We feel weak or even exhausted. We take laxatives or stimulants (say: ‚Red Bull‘) and hope for the best. However, it eventually all just ends up in a more or less permanent loop, in a downward spiral into fungal or bacterial infections, inflammation of the tissues and joints, increased blood pressure and/or levels of cholesterol (say: plaque build-up).

So what’s the solution? How do we restore and maintain the quality of our body juices? Regain our strength and health ? Feel empowered and balanced?
