Is Pau D’arco Good For Candida?

August 25, 2019

Greetings! It’s naturopath from New Zealand Eric Bakker. I’m the author of Candida Crusher. Thanks for checking out my video today. We’re going to talk about Taheebo or Lapacho
or Pau D’arco, which is the beautiful brownish red colored inner bark from a big rain forest
tree that grows in Brazil in the rain forest. It’s been used for a long, long time by a
native Indian people in South America for a wide range of conditions. Bowel conditions, colitis, hemorrhoids, constipation,
and many different types of cancers of the head, the neck, the throat, the digestive
system. So this is a plant that’s been used for a
long, long time. It’s been researched quite well, too. Now the problem with Taheebo or Pau D’arco
is the adulteration with inferior species. They’re chopping whole trees down and using
the inner heartwood when they should be using the inner bark. It’s a little bit like the sandy climb of
the slippery elm tree in Canada and the northern parts of America. They’re used by many different Indian tribes
for many generations and now, unfortunately, just about disappeared out of the wild because
of fools coming in there and just chopping all the trees down. The slippery elm is one of my favorite herbs. It’s a beautiful deep pink colored powder,
which is a fantastic product for the digestive system, but Taheebo or Pau D’arco you can
use very effectively as an anti-fungal. So here’s what you do. Just get yourself some of the tea and then
this is just a packet I’ve got here, but I’m sure you’ll find it in your country as well. Now I don’t want to make a mess all over my
computer so I’m going to put the paper down. This is what the stuff looks like. So, I’ll hold it up-it’s sort of like a browny
colored bark. You can see in here a nice bark. I’ll bring that up a bit closer to the screen. There you go. That’s the bark of the Taheebo. What you want to do is you want to probably
get around about a good three level tablespoons of this powdery stuff. Just get one of those plastic baking teaspoon
measurements. Get about three tablespoons and level them
off and then chuck that into a pot. Get a stainless steel or glass pot. Don’t use aluminum. It’s crap. Don’t use aluminum saucepots at all. A cast-iron pot is okay, too. So three level tablespoons you put in there,
and then you put in about three to four cups, usually about four cups, about 1,000 mils
or one liter. Four 250 mil cups of cold water you put in
on top of it. And use a good quality water. Don’t use fluoridated or tap water or some
junk like that. Use preferably bottled water-a good quality
water. Make sure it’s cold water. Don’t put boiling water on it at all. Bad idea. This is not how you make Taheebo tea. Cold water on top of the bark, put the lid
on it, and bring it to the boil. So turn it up, I generally stir it in really
thoroughly. Get my hand in there and just crunch it all
up, get the water in there. It’ll start discoloring a little bit at that
stage, and then I will just get the heat up to it and then bring it up gently to the boil. When it’s rolling boil, turn it right down
to simmer, to the lowest possible setting. And then keep the lid on it and you leave
it simmering for about 20 minutes to half an hour. This is how you make a good Taheebo tea. And then keep checking it so it doesn’t boil
dry and make sure that you have it on a low setting. You can partially take it off the elemental
flame so it’s not covering it all. You just want to have it heating nicely. Other people I know will just actually put
the bark like I showed you into a blender and make a powder out of it and then actually
put one or two teaspoons of that in a ceramic teapot and make like a tea out of it and then
strain that because it’s also going to sit for 20 minutes. As long as you’ve got the powder or the bark
in contact with the nice warm to hot water for a period of about half an hour, then you’re
going to strain it through a piece of fine clean cotton cloth. It could be through some sort of coffee/tea
strainers, one of those plunger pots, you could strain it through that kind of mechanism. Strain that and then what you’re going to
do is keep that in the refrigerator. Now because it’s anti-fungal, no molds or
fungi will really grow in that stuff, so you can keep that in the fridge for days and days
on end. Now what’s the average dose? Well, that depends on you, but I recommend
that you would start maybe with a couple of tablespoons of Taheebo tea per day. You gradually build it up to a 250 mils or
one cup per day, which means that what you’ve got in the refrigerator will only last you
for five days. Some people say it’s best to make the tea
fresh every day. Other patients I know who have drunk Taheebo
for a long time say it’s not necessary and you can make up a large batch and keep it
in the refrigerator for up to two or three weeks. Then take it out, then drink it cold, or you
can reheat it. I don’t like the microwave to reheat it. That’s the only problem. Drinking it cold. The other one I know of I’ve got a few people
who actually make it and leave it at room temperature in a big jug and they’ll put mint
leaves with it. They’ll put a couple of peppermint leaves
with it or other kinds of herbs or lemon juice in there or a couple of pieces of lime or
lemon. Especially in the summer months that’s quite
a nice thing to do. So every day you walk past your urn, put the
tap open and have one or two glasses of the Taheebo tea. It’s a very powerful tea. It’s going to work very effectively in conjunction
with the Candida Crusher protocol. Now, I’ve also put the Pau D’arco-a very powerful
four-in-one extract in the Canxida Remove tablets. I actually made a Canxida Remove product. It’s a very broad spectrum anti-microbial
product. Perfect for the gut. It’s got really a good quality Pau D’arco
extract in that tablet. So if you were going to take a couple of tablets
per day of the Canxida Remove, you won’t need to drink the tea at all because you’re going
to get a very potent anti-fungal activity. I’m going to do another video in a minute
showing women how to use Taheebo tea as a vaginal cleanse because it’s very, very good
for that as well. So if you haven’t already got some of this
tea, you can buy it online or you can just go to a health food shop and buy it. And if you don’t want to have the tea but
you want the benefits of Pau D’arco, just take the Canxida Remove tablets because you’ll
get plenty of activity in those. I hope that gives you a little bit of understanding
on Taheebo. Last thing I’ll leave you with is if you do
buy Pau D’arco make sure you’re getting an authentic Pau D’arco. You’re not getting ripped off or scammed by
some crap quality product, because you need to get the real stuff. Thanks for tuning in. Don’t forget to click on the link below if

    Can I use the tea bag if I can't find that particular one

    Hi Doc, that's pretty much what I've been doing. It's just nice to actually hear a professional confirm it, much appreciated.

    I was doing candida cleanse during CNS injury from benzodiazepines. Pau d'arco made me very sick. I would just add that if you have any CNS sensitives/illness you may want to try a tiny amount first. I'm sure it's wonderful for other folks though. : )

    Dc. Bakker would you recommend any particular authentic company that I can get pau d arco as well as matcha green tea from ? Thank you !

    Dr. would taking your pill and drinking the tea be too much on the body?

    Greetings! Great info! I just found about Pau D'arco tea last evening. I appreciate the brewing instructions very much, which can make or break the end results of the tea! I heard it is good to drink Red Clover tea as well. What are your thoughts about this tea? Also, in general, I am a big tea drinker already and have quite a wide collection. Is it ok to drink black or oolong teas, not to mention herbal/tisane/fruit teas? Thank you!

    Hey dr. Before I subscribe, I would really appreciate a reply on this 1st. There's no since in subbing to a doctor who won't answer questions. Please, would be very greatful! So yesterday I drank some of this tea, and not only did it give me nausea and stomach cramps… Last night my right arm kept jumping and the right side of my lip would randomly feel numbed. Had it been the left side of my body acting up like this, I'd swear I was on the verge of having a stroke or something. My mouth also kept getting extremely dry, and I tried to drink some water in attempt to give my mouth more moisture, but it seemed the more water I drank, the more dry my mouth became, and the more my arm started to jump. I became pretty anxious and had to calm myself before I ended up slipping into an anxiety attack. Soon, I decided to just sleep off the effects. Based on my research, it seemed to be a pretty healthy tea, and most expert videos such as yourself seem to be all for it. However, despite the fact that I've done my research… Today is the 1st time that I've payed any attention to what people who've consumed this tea has had to say. None of the comments are good. Some claim the tea hasn't helped them at all, and others claim to have experienced side effects even worst than mine. In fact, after hours of reading comments on different videos, it seems almost rare that anyone had anything good to say about it. I am ALL for alternative medicine! But this particular tea seems to be more like coffee (natural yet toxic to the body.) I guess the over all question I'm trying to ask here is, are you guys SURE there isn't more research and tests to be done on this tea before promoting it?

    can I get canxida remove product in India ?

    So here is the recipe to make the Pau De Arco Tea according to the Doc in the vid. 3 level Tablespoons of the Bark Tea + 1 Liter of purified, non-chlorinated COLD Water. Place in a cast iron or glass saucepan, or stainless steel (non-aluminium). Do NOT MICROWAVE! Bring gently to a boil, & when at full boil, reduce temp to a gentle simmer for 30mins. Remove, let cool down & strain. Once fully cooled down, refrigerate. It will last for about 1 week in the fridge. Dosage: Start with 2TBSP per day, & gradually increase the dosage to 1 Cup per day. According to Chinese medicine it is best to drink warm drinks & not cold. For me I like to reheat the amount I will take each day. Just heat very gently in a non-aluminium saucepan & take just before I go to bed. In this way, the tea can be working on killing the Candida while I sleep.
