Mastic medicine from ancient Greece

Mastic is a viscous fragrant substance.  The Latin name of this plant is Pistacia Lentiscious and it is a plant that has long been growing in the southern part of the island of Xios, which is located in the Aegean Sea. Pentachio Lentiscious wood  It is considered a medicinal plant and is used as a very powerful preparation for healing. It is known for its healing properties in all countries that access the Mediterranean Sea. 

It is used to treat a number of conditions and diseases such as gastritis and indigestion. Scientists have confirmed many positive properties of mastic rubber in previous research. In laboratory research and experiments, scientists have confirmed the useful elements of Pistacia Lentiscious  as natural resins for the treatment of many diseases.

Mastic as therapeutic agents

mastic therapeutic agent

Mastic has a wide role in various therapeutic methods and is used as septicitis, it is associated with use during surgical interventions, it cures ulcers and various forms of malignancy.  The research confirmed its use as an antioxidant and pesticide, and also expressed its effect on reducing high cholesterol, the effect on chronic disease, diabetes and hypertension. Its therapeutic value also lies in its influence on various  lines of harmful microbes including very dangerous Helicobacter pylori .

This offensive microbe is the cause of gastritis and ulcers on the duodenum. Helicobacter pylori or the Latin name Helicobacter pylori is a very important link in the development of gastric malignancy. Elimination of H. pylori bacteria from the gastrointestinal tract affects the secondary inhibition of gastric and intestinal malignancy, the development of which is stimulated by this bacterium.

Mastic research

Modern research has been conducted in Greece and  in Florida  USA by two expert teams on colon malignancies. Their intention was to understand how Mastic kills colon cancer cells, and they conducted their research in laboratory conditions. It has been established that Mastic has a different effect on carcinogenic diseases and that its effect depends on the amount that is taken into the body.

The larger the amount and the stronger the intensity of the action, the stronger the effect of the action on the cancer will automatically be. When the exposure was for 48 hours with a mastic strength of 25 micrograms per milliliter, the malignant cells remained attached to the extracellular membrane, but already when the mastic strength was increased to 50 micrograms per milliliter, about 50% of the cancer cells were removed from the membrane. and when the concentration of mastic introduced into the body was 100 micrograms per milliliter, 100% of the malignant cells were removed from the sample.

Mastic and cancer

In the last few years, there has been an increasing concentration of positive influences of Mastic and cases of destruction of various types of human malignancies. Mastic or resin from Mastic belongs to any group of Tritepenoids which are especially responsible for its anticancer properties.  Mastic can be as effective as some anti-neoplastic compounds thanks to these compounds.

A significant number of researches have marked malignant diseases that are affected by Mastic, and over time, this list is expanding. Malignancy of the prostate, colon,  rectum, leukemia and lung malignancy are diseases on which mastic has an anticancer effect.

Research with cancer

chewing gum mastic

In 2005, a scientific team led by Dr. Balan discovered that a mixture of hydrocarbon and mastic fluids promotes apoptosis in HCT116 cancer cells of human colon cancer.

In this study, Balan et al. Confirmed that a solution of ethanol and mastic  interfere with the spread and growth of HCT116 human colon cancer. It was found that a concentration of 200 milligrams per kilogram per day for 4 days (divided into three daily doses) reduced tumor development by 35% and the effects of this treatment were determined with an effect that was activated 35 days later. Scientists have proven that Mastic has an anti-malignant effect on colon cancer.

In short, studies have found that Gum Mastic has a very effective action against malignant activities such as several types of human neoplasia, prostate, colon, lung, pancreas and hematological malignancies. This is published in the latest  report of the section for forensic medicine and toxicology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Athens .

Today’s statistics on the antitumor activities of mastic and its composites are presented below and the results are derived from the same. In this report, the scientists focused on the molecular processes that affect the direct and indirect influences associated with malignancy. Components that have their place in the chemical class of Triterpendoids are compounds that play the largest role in the antimalignant actions of mastic.

Influence of mastic and its ingredients on cancer

The influence of mastic and its ingredients are:

1. Nuclear factor kappa-Beta: a protein composite that regulates the copy of deoxyribonucleic acid. Inadequate regulation of the kappa-Beta nuclear factor leads to the development of malignancy.

2. Mastering the JAK-STAT pathway – this pathway is very important in the development of cancer cells.

3. Inhibition of vascular endothelial growth factor –  increases the development of blood vessels. Mixing the amount of new blood vessels reduces the influx of nutrients and the development of tumors.

4. Reduction of glutathione

We can conclude that mastic is a very successful anticancer agent that can play a very important role in combination therapies with other anticancer drugs, and in the near future we should expect new information from the latest medical tests. One thing we can conclude for now, this preparation, which has been used in traditional medicine for many years, has been given a chance again through the discovery of its influence in the treatment of cancerous diseases.

Mastic for pharmaceutical purposes

Modern studies have shown that mastic and mastic oil have anti-inflammatory properties. This is due to the oleanolic acid that the mastic contains. This resin has a healing and anti-inflammatory effect. Mastic is used to treat numerous disorders, such as inflammation of the dental system, feeding system, gastric mucosa, etc. It also helps against stomach ulcers and hemorrhoids .

Its stimulating and revitalizing effect prevents unpleasant reactions of the body, such as indigestion and gas. It has an antioxidant effect and thus protects the whole organism and the digestive system.

According to recent studies University of Nottingham , published in The New England Journal of Medicine, antimicrobial properties of mastic can fight bacteria Helicobacter pylori . Even small amounts of mastic (1g / day) for two weeks can cure an ulcer on the gastrointestinal tract in a short time.

Mastic also lowers blood cholesterol levels.

It also has a significant effect on liver function by having detoxifying activity. It helps break down cholesterol and thus reduces the risk of heart disease .

Mastic also works against certain viruses.

Mastic has a very specific property of mastic that can hardly be found in any other medicine.

According to scientific studies, its active ingredients also help in the treatment of herpes simplex. Herpes is an infection of the skin that manifests itself on the skin, around the lips and genitals.

Areas of application of mastic

Mastic is used in the fields of lithography, painting, brewing, textiles, and cotton production.

Perfume making

Mastic oil is used both as a perfume and as a perfume stabilizer.

Mastic oil is also used in the production of cosmetics and perfumes (creams, body lotions, shampoos).


Mastic oil has valuable properties from which beauty can benefit. Face creams with mastic ensure firm and clean skin. It is also used successfully in hand creams, body lotions, shower gels and soaps.

Cooking mastic

Mastic is used as a spice that gives many recipes a pleasant and unmistakable aroma. Mastic is also an important dietary supplement, especially when it lacks trace elements. Lebanon or Syria produces a traditional type of cheese with mastic and mastic flavor.

The aroma of mastic is highly valued in Arabic cuisine and bakery. Mastic also gives bread a special taste.

Mastic in the bakery

With its fine aroma, you can enrich sweets such as Lokume, yeast braids and Greek New Year’s cakes (recipes from Asia Minor).


Mastic is widely used to make liqueurs and ointments. Liqueurs and ouzo, which get a fine aroma from mastic, are very famous. It is also stated that mastic drinks have the property adapted to the stomach and its optimal work.

Candida – fungal infections

Any fungal infection spreads easily. Many women will suffer from itching and discomfort from vaginal candidiasis at least once in their lives, and no one is immune to infections such as lichens and athletic foot. In most cases, fungal infections are easily treated with antifungal creams that you can purchase or some antifungal drug taken orally (which can be obtained with a prescription or purchased). Whatever medication you use, additional treatment measures can also help treat and prevent the recurrence of the infection.

Carrying with candidiasis

Probably not a fungal infection, candidiasis provokes mushroom Candida albicans It usually occurs in the vagina but can also occur in both the skin’s mouth and moist folds. Couples can transmit this infection to each other during sexual intercourse. If you have vaginal candidiasis, make sure your partner is not also infected, which is most common in men who have not had circumcision.

For vaginal infections, rub twice a day, two days in a row, with the solution obtained by adding 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to 1 liter of water. This slightly acidic solution creates a hostile environment for candida fungi.

But you should only do that for two days and only when you have candidiasis. If you use this rinsing liquid when it is unnecessary, you are flushing out beneficial bacteria that repel the infection.

You can easily treat infections in both men and women with purchased creams, such as Canesten. Application natural yogurt can also relieve pain.

Pour sea salt into a warm bath, stir the water until it dissolves and soak nicely. You can do this every day, as long as it helps while relieving itching and pain. Immersion in saltwater also speeds up healing. Rinsing with salt water can also be useful in oral candidiasis.

Try a fighter against infection – garlic


Eat a few garlic cloves garlic per day. Since ancient times, hot garlic has been used to fight everything from colds to red infections. Its action, like a fungus, makes it useful code candidiasis. It is most effective when crushed and eaten uncooked. If you don’t like the idea of chewing the whole clove, mash it and add it to the salad dressing or mix it into the pasta sauce.

 Some people recommend inserting a garlic clove wrapped in gauze into the vagina. Most women, however, will prefer to use an antifungal cream – especially since garlic can burn.

Fight bacteria against candidiasis

You take a pinch of pure, unsweetened yogurt that contains mercury every day Lactobacillus acidophilus bacteria. It has been shown to reduce the excessive growth of candida in the vagina and intestines. If, however, you have a bacterial infection, yogurt, unlike in the case of candidiasis, could make things worse.

Other fungus fighters

Make a cinnamon solution, which according to research, has strong antifungal properties (Some German scientists have found that impregnating toilet paper with cinnamon would, in fact, completely suppress the fungus responsible for candidiasis). Add 8 crushed cinnamon sticks to 4 tablespoons of boiling water and cook for about five minutes on low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and let the cinnamon soak for 45 minutes. Some herbalists advise using this lukewarm rinsing liquid; others say drinking cinnamon tea helps candidiasis keep under control.

To help your immune system fight infection, take 3 doses of 200 mg chicane three times a day, or drink 4 times a day to solve a full drop of tincture of echinacea in one salt of water. Take chicane every day for a maximum of two weeks, then stop taking it for two weeks.

Keeping candidiasis away from you

Candida under a microscope

Contrary to popular belief, a diet high in carbohydrates, i.e., one that contains sugar, does not increase the risk of getting candidiasis. There is also no benefit to a diet that does not contain yeast. The yeast fungus used in making bread is not the same type as the fungus responsible for candidiasis.

Be at night without underwear. Due to that candida thriving in a warm, humid environment, airflow will help you avoid infection. During the day, also be without panties whenever you can. If you can’t do that, choose cotton panties, which allow better airflow than those made of synthetic material. 

 For the same reasons, avoid tight pants.

Do not stay in wet suits for long after swimming. Take a quick shower and replace the wet suit with a dry one.

After bathing or swimming, to dry the outer vaginal area, use a cold-set hairdryer.

Do not use soap or hot water to maintain vaginal hygiene. It removes healthy natural skin barriers that help keep vaginal candidiasis under control.

Stay away from perfumed tampons, women’s deodorants, and baths. The odors’ chemical compounds can disrupt the sensitive environment inside the vagina and thus allow candidiasis to take control.

Also, avoid perfumed talc. Some women believe that the powder irritates the skin and that this additional irritation makes them more susceptible to candidiasis.

 Go to the toilet after making love. The mucous membrane of the vagina is naturally slightly acidic, while semen is basic, which makes the inside of the vagina more susceptible to candidiasis.  Passing urine will help make the area less suitable for developing an infection.

Disgusting lichens

skin lichen

Lichens – which were once thought to worm hiding under the skin   – common are fungal infections of the skin.

 At the first sign of infection, look for commercially available antifungal drugs that contain ingredients such as miconazole and clotrimazole. Well-known brands of these products are  Canesten AF and Daktarin. Most of them must be applied twice a day. If you follow the package’s instructions, the lichens should start to recede after one week. Use these medications twice a day for at least 8 weeks to make sure you are completely rid of the infection.

Take care to keep the affected area clean and dry.

If the infected area begins to breastfeed or leak any contents, apply cold or warm moist compresses. You can also soak it in water in which bitter salt has been dissolved to help drain the rash from which the leak occurred. Be careful not to puncture the blisters, and see a doctor as soon as possible.

What is wrong ???

The lichens are fungal infection goats who tend to insidious serious groin, scalp, feet, and face. It often begins in the round, red surfaces that itch and spread. During the spread, the central area manages to heal, but all around it, there is a red, stepped ring, the cheese with which the development of the infection continues. Suppose it’s on your scalp, where there will be some disheveled skin and an area where hair has fallen out. Lichens are a contagious infection that accelerates growth in warm and humid conditions and often spreads when people touch an infected area, such as the bottom of a shower stall.

Green walnut

If lichens attack you in the fall, you may be able to treat them with an outer walnut shell. The walnut tree bears fruits that look like a large pale green plum. Walnut, with its shell, is wrapped in a thick green bark of a specific smell. Knead this crust into a paste and apply it on the spots up to 4 times a day until the problem is solved. (Warning: This mass is poisonous to eat, so make sure it is found only on the skin).

Curry cure

Levite lichens with turmeric.  The main ingredient of curry powder, turmeric, contains curcumin, which helps many with inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis. It is unclear why turmeric should be so effective in fungal skin diseases, but Asian medicine has long used this spice to fight lichens. Stir in one or two coffee spoons turmeric in as much water as needed to make a paste. Spread this paste over the affected area and cover it with a gauze piece. Remove it after 10 minutes to an hour. You can repeat this 3 to 4 times a day, but stop using turmeric if you notice that it irritates your skin.

The power of prevention

Do not share shoes and used towels with other people – they can spread the infection.

If any family members have lichens, you should take care that they wear shared clothes or hairbrushes.

Wash in hot water all clothing, towels, hand towels, and bedding that may have contact with the infected area of skin.

Make sure to completely dry your feet after swimming or bathing using a hairdryer whenever possible. The area between the toes is the most common area for fungal development.

To avoid the possibility of picking up fungi, instead of going barefoot around public pools, use slippers or sandals.

 Put some antifungal powder in shoes or groin to absorb excess moisture.

Pets can be carriers of lichens that can be transmitted to humans. If you notice a hairless spot on your dog or cat’s skin, take your pet to the vet as soon as possible to begin treatment for lichens.

Natural remedies against candida

There are many natural remedies on the market that have been suggested to treat candida. Some include essential oils, probiotics, and other supplements. Before using any therapy for candida, you should know what leads to excessive reproduction of candida, which normally lives in small amounts in the body and the body. Candida growth is associated with irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, and mood problems, yet this hypothesis has not been clinically proven. When a small amount of candida is present, it does not cause any problems in your body.

The way candida grows in the body is controversial. However, candida infections can cause serious health problems, and therefore any increase in candida in the body needs to be studied well. And it is perfect to consider whether the treatment of this problem with alternative approaches is adequate.

Candida infections

Candida infections

Candida infections are not defined as an increase in candida in the body. Candida infections involve tissue damage and can result in an inflammatory immune response as the body fights fungus.

Candida infections can be:

  • candidiasis in the mouth and throat
  • vaginal infections
  • urinary tract infections
  • vaginitis
  • esophagitis
  • breast infections
  • disseminated candidiasis, which infects the bloodstream and affects internal organs, such as the heart

Candida infections most often develop due to reduced immunity or antibiotics and cause symptoms such as pain and swelling. Candida infections can and should be treated with effective antifungal drugs. Candida infections cannot be treated exclusively with natural therapy and require your doctor’s medication.

Products that affect the excessive growth of candida in the body

growth of candida in the body

The term excessive candida growth has no official definition, and some alternative doctors sometimes use it to explain unrelated and often vague symptoms.

The following products can be suggested as treatments in the treatment of candida. There are studies for the benefits of alternative candida treatment. Although there are studies of some types of treatment for candida, none have been tested in rigorous clinical trials for this particular purpose. Most natural products in use due to excessive candida growth are not regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Using natural remedies for candida while avoiding or delaying standard medications prescribed by your doctor can harm your health. It is always recommended to consult a doctor before starting an alternative treatment.

Lactobacillus probiotics are a type of bacteria present in the body, most commonly in the mouth, intestines, and female reproductive systems. This bacterium is thought to benefit health in several ways, one of which is the potential prevention of candida growth.

Drinking yogurt and other fermented products and foods or taking probiotic supplements are popular ways to keep Lactobacillus acidophilus in your digestive system. In fact, probiotics contain several types of bacteria that are believed to benefit gut health.

Using supplements or probiotics or consuming probiotic-fortified foods is often considered a useful strategy for balancing bacteria and yeast in your digestive system. These microorganisms play a big role in maintaining the immune system and help you digest food.

Health benefits of Lactobacillus Acidophilos


Prebiotics are foods that contain fiber and are promoted to reduce the amount of yeast in the body. For example, prebiotic foods have a combination of fiber and antioxidants. Research suggests that such foods can reduce the body’s substances that promote infections, including infections caused by candida.

Research also suggests that the prebiotic fiber in bananas can promote healthy bacteria in the gut and balance the amount of candida present.

Other accessories

Examples of additives promoted to slow down yeast’s growth include caprylic acid from coconut, oleic acid from olive oil. Alternative medicine doctors recommend using these supplements daily or until the symptoms resolve. Some suggest using it to prevent candida healing.

Coated essential oil capsules containing oregano oil, peppermint oil, and other oils are also recommended as a good strategy to prevent excessive candida growth. According to the research from 2017. including oils containing oregano and incense, it has been found that they can help reduce candida growth. Pure volatile oils can be toxic in large quantities. These oils cannot be swallowed in a liquid state, and the capsules should not break.


Some studies suggest that garlic can prevent the growth of candida and bacteria. Some doctors of alternative medicine recommend that it be used alone or in combination with peppermint or oregano oil to prevent candida growth.

Changes in life habits affect candida treatment.

You must also correct certain lifestyle habits to prevent and manage candida growth. The warning is that none of these methods have been proven effective, and if you opt for one, you can postpone the treatment you need to feel better.


Most alternative medicine doctors believe that nutrition is an important part of managing candida growth. Naturopathic practitioners generally warn that you will need to follow a diet for at least two weeks to see improvement. However, the length of time depends on your symptoms and general health. When you notice improvements, you can gradually reintroduce foods from the diet’s limited list. Sugar is an example of a food that should be reduced or even eliminated from the diet. Interestingly, some researchers have suggested that sweeteners such as saccharin can suppress candida growth.

Does the candida diet work? Alcohol consumption may be associated with candida growth, and it is also advisable to eliminate consumption during the anti-candida diet. A research study found that intestinal fungi are associated with alcoholic liver disease. It is not clear whether candida was caused by alcohol consumption or whether it could have played a role in developing alcoholic liver disease.

Tobacco products

A study by researchers from Spain found that in addition to consuming alcohol, smoking can stimulate candida growth. Tobacco users had elevated levels of candida in the body, especially in the mouth.


There are many effective natural remedies, either alternative medicine or complementary treatment. If you have any of the symptoms associated with excessive growth of candida in the body, be sure to consult your doctor. If you decide to treat yourself, keep in mind that alternative methods have not been fully tested. You may already be in a condition that requires quick and proper treatment and therefore need to see your doctor in time.

Taheebo tea in the fight against candida and inflammation

Taheebo tea is native to South America, where it has been used for years to treat a wide range of conditions. There are reports of medical uses of taheebo tea from 1873. years. Taheebo, also known as Tabebuia avellanedae, is a tree from the family Bignoniaceae with extremely hardwood; its name is the Portuguese word for “onion,” which is an appropriate term because this tree was actually used by the South American Indians to make hunting bows and is also known as Pau D’arco and Ipe roxo.

Tree bark is used externally and internally for healing arthritis, pain, inflammation of the prostate, fever, dysentery, ulcers, and various cancers. One of the easiest ways to use taheebo is to consume tea from the inner bark or apply it directly to the skin.

Taheebo is an evergreen tree whose flowers are pink. There are almost 100 types of taheebo, but only a few can boast high quality. Also, it is necessary to be extremely skilled in collecting to select the most efficient species. The healing part of the tree is the bark, especially the bark’s inner lining called phloem. Unfortunately, many companies use whole bark, which also contains dead wood, which dilutes the material’s activity.

Scientists have identified two active chemicals in taheebo, namely naphthoquinones, specifically lapahol and beta-lapachon. These chemicals have the power to kill bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites. They also record anti-inflammatory properties in treating health conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Nutritional facts related to taheebo tea

Teheebo tree flowers

Taheebo tea contains several compounds, including quinoids, benzenoids, and flavonoids. These compounds have shown biological activity against harmful organisms. Taheebo also has a significant amount of lapahol from a tree trunk. According to the US Department of Agriculture, lapahol is known to be poisonous and resistant to almost all types of harmful organisms.

2005 study published in Oncology Reports discovered that lapahol has great potential in the fight against its metastasis, that is, the spread of cancer or other diseases from one organ to another. Metastasis is the main process responsible for death in cancer patients, and recent research involving lapahol is promising.

Lapahol is also used for its antioxidant and antimicrobial effects, but some research suggests that high doses of this compound can lead to dangerous side effects, such as reproductive toxicity. Taheebo also contains another chemical called beta-lapahone, which has also been harmful to harmful organisms, similar to lapahol.

Another strong element of taheebo is selenium, an antioxidant that removes free radicals that damage cells and causes disease. Selenium is an extremely vital mineral for the human body; Some of the benefits of selenium include its ability to boost immunity, participate in antioxidant activity that protects the body from free radical damage and inflammation, and play a key role in triggering metabolism.

According to research by the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences of the University of Suriya, consuming a lot of natural selenium has positive antiviral effects, is essential for successful male and female fertility and reproduction, plus reduces the risk of cancer, autoimmune, and thyroid disease. Low selenium status is associated with an increased risk of mortality, poor immune function, and cognitive decline.

Seven benefits of taheebo tea

taheebo tree image

It reduces pain

Research shows that taheebo tea has the power to naturally reduce pain in patients who have cancer and other serious health conditions. It can reduce the pain associated with several types of cancer, particularly prostate cancer, liver, or breast. The pain due to arthritis decreases after consuming taheebo tea.

As part of a survey conducted in 2001. published in BMC Pharmacology, examined the possibility of reducing pain with these teas and its ability to reduce swelling, as measured by experimental models in mice in which nerve cell-stimulated pain was induced. The aqueous extract of the bark, which is available in three different concentrations, has reduced the sensory process that provides signals that lead to pain.

Fight candida

Taheebo helps the body fight candida naturally. Candida, also known as candidiasis, is a common fungal infection that can lead to many health problems, from a sore throat to serious stomach problems. The body normally produces fungi in the mouth, vagina, rectum, and digestive tract. In normal amounts, it is completely harmless; however, if the body’s natural pH balance is disturbed, the symptoms of an excessive amount of candida can quickly become out of control.

If you suffer from headaches, inability to concentrate, hyperactivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, sugar addiction, and stomach problems, you may suffer from excessive fungi and candida production. The usual symptom is candidiasis, i.e., a flood of fungi in the mouth or vagina. If left untreated, candidiasis weakens the immune system – allowing more serious diseases to attack the body.

Reduces inflammation

An overactive immune system results in a flood of the body with defense cells and hormones that damage tissues. Toxins from food and the environment accumulate in the body, which leads to the immune system being highly reactive, leading to inflammation, which is the basis of most diseases. By reducing inflammation in the body, you avoid serious health conditions such as asthma, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and Parkinson’s disease.

A 2014 study published in The Journal of Toxicological Sciences found that taheebo increased the expression of the Nrf2 gene, a target gene in the gut. Nrf2 is a protein that regulates the expression of antioxidant proteins that protect against oxidative damage caused by injury and inflammation. This study shows that the activation of Nrf2 can complement the positive effects of taheebo tea, especially in the intestines, which can be seriously affected by inflammation.

Heals ulcers

Ulcers are burns that form in the lining of the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. When they occur in the stomach, it is called a gastric ulcer. If they form in the first part of the small intestine, the duodenum, they are called duodenal ulcers.

Peptic ulcer disease begins when weakness in the stomach or intestinal lining allows the acid to create erosion or pain. According to the American Association of Gastroenterologists, it is the most common stomach disease type. Ulcers are caused by an increase in stomach acid caused by stress, medication, diet, smoking, alcohol, or the presence of H. pylori, a type of bad bacteria. The most common ulceration symptom is a sharp pain aggravated by stomach acid coming in contact with the ulcerated area.

A 2013 study published in Phytotherapy Research showed that taheebo extract significantly accelerated the healing of acetic acid-induced gastric ulcers in rats by increasing mucus content and cell proliferation. This suggests that taheebo can treat peptic ulcer disease in humans. Peptic ulcers refer to severe pain or ulcers in the abdomen’s perimeter or the first part of the small intestine called the duodenum. This is typically the result of an imbalance of digestive fluids in the stomach and intestines. Infection occurs, and too many bad bacteria lead to symptoms, including sharp pain, nausea, internal bleeding, heartburn, and bloating.

Fight cancer

One of the most well-known benefits of taheebo tea is its ability to fight cancer and relieve pain caused by cancer. A study conducted by the Dana-Farber Institute for Combating Labor in Boston showed that beta-lapahone is the main compound of taheebo tea, a potent compound that could be added to chemotherapy, especially in prostate cancer.

Another study from 2002. concluded that beta-lapahone is one of several new cancer drugs currently part of active research and shows the capacity for chemotherapy alone and especially in combination. This potent compound caused cancer cell mortality in mice and had no adverse effects on mice.

Provides antiviral and antifungal properties

For thousands of years, taheebo has been used as an antiviral plant. The range of viruses that taheebo tea stops extend from those that cause the common cold to those responsible for the life-threatening AIDS virus. It has been shown to actively inhibit, kill or stop the growth of several dangerous viruses, including herpes, polio, vesicular stomatitis, alpha retrovirus, leukemia, and RSV.

Beta-Arapahoe, which is present in taheebo tea, inhibits enzymes in the virus cells, directly affecting the synthesis of DNA and RNA. The virus is no longer able to take control of the cell’s reproductive processes, so it cannot recur or infect other cells.

Taheebo tea has the power to help heal skin wounds and infections. It is usually used to reduce redness and swelling due to skin infections and irritations, thanks to its antifungal and antibacterial properties.

Detoxifies the body

Taheebo tea detoxifies the body by removing harmful toxic substances; these toxins include heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives, and even chemotherapy residues.

Taheebo works as a detoxifier by having a laxative effect. It is known to facilitate the intestines’ work, which helps digestion and regularity. By stimulating the digestive system, taheebo tea helps the body eliminate excess fat and toxins. It is important that food moves through the body, especially the large intestine. The large intestine is the body’s sewage system, but like all proper and proper sewer systems, they need to be cleaned, emptied, and maintained for everything to function properly.

When we eat highly processed, refined, or “empty” foods, our colon becomes burdened with unhealthy leftovers from those foods. That is why it is vital to consume foods and drinks that perform detoxification, such as taheebo tea, to maintain a clean and healthy body. The use of taheebo tea is one of the best ways to detoxify; blood vessels, lymphatic system, cells, tissue, and organs are detoxified, which allows the body’s systems to function properly and efficiently.

How to use taheebo tea

taheebo tea picture

When buying taheebo products, read the ingredients carefully. Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s in taheebo products because they’re labeled as taheebo – but they don’t actually contain taheebo (the one that belongs to Tabebuia species). Some cases contain some similar species, such as Tecoma curialis.

Some products’ labels state that the product contains the inner bark of the taheebo tree, which some people think is more effective. In fact, the product contains only the outer bark. For that reason, buy taheebo from reputable companies with clearly stated ingredients on the label. The strongest part of the wood is the inner bark, which must stand after taking it to get the maximum out of its efficiency; however, many companies try to sell the outer bark or collect bark from young trees.

Using high doses of taheebo can lead to nausea, diarrhea, and dizziness, so it is important to start with a minimal dose and see how your body reacts. If your body is too sensitive to consuming taheebo tea or taking taheebo supplements, then you can still use the product externally to treat infections.

Among the benefits of taheebo tea are:

  • It fights candida or internal candidiasis by rinsing the infected area.
  • Treatment of skin infection by immersing the fabric in taheebo tea and applying it to the affected areas

How to prepare taheebo tea

  1. Put 2 teaspoons of bark in 4 cups of boiling water.
  2. Leave the crust in hot water for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the stove and let the tea cool for one hour.
  4. Drain the water.
  5. Drink tea in small amounts throughout the day or use tea for external use or rinsing the vagina.
  6. Taheebo tea can be purchased online or at your local health food store.

Possible side effects and interactions of taheebo tea

When consumed in large quantities, taheebo tea can be unsafe and can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, and internal bleeding. If you use taheebo tea, be sure to monitor the dose and talk to your doctor if you notice any of these side effects.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use taheebo tea because there is not enough information about their safety.

Taheebo can slow blood clotting and interfere with the treatment of people with blood clotting disorders, which can increase bruising chances. This can also increase the chance of bleeding during and after surgery. Be sure to stop using the taheebo at least two weeks before the scheduled surgery. Also, avoid the use of blood clotting drugs, such as anticoagulants and similar drugs.
