Chanca piedra is a plant from the Amazon rainforest that has provided naturopaths with a powerful, plant-based ally for supporting bladder, kidney, gallbladder, and liver health. Traditionally, chanca piedra is viewed as a health supplement that promotes the liver’s normal function by aiding its detoxification efforts to purge harmful substances. Millions of Americans suffer from kidney stones, due to high intake of animal protein, lack of water, and high calcium foods just to name a few. However, nature has a remedy to help. For generations, chanca piedra has been used by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon for treatment and removal of gallstones and kidney stones. In fact, the name chanca piedra, as it is known in Peru, comes from its effect on kidney stones and gallstones. The literal translation is “stone breaker.” It effectively softens both kidney stones and gallstones for easy passage out of the body. It is also renowned for its diuretic qualities and has been shown effective at helping relieve edema and urine retention. Its liver-healing properties have prompted research into its benefits in dealing with the Hepatitis B virus (HBV). For many healers, based on accumulated research, the herb is considered to be the most effective, natural, non-toxic remedy for HBV. Seeing as one out of every 250 Americans is an HBV carrier, this could make a huge difference in not only treating the virus, but eradicating it as well. The hope for the herb is to provide an abundantly available nontoxic alternative not only to treat the disease but, ideally, to render carriers sero-negative for the virus so they won’t pass it on to others. Perhaps even more surprising is that some studies are beginning to indicate that chanca piedra may be just as effective when it comes to dealing with Hepatitis C. Other health issues that Chanca Piedra has been effective with are
bacterial and viral infections
colds and flu
bronchitis & colic
