I just came across your request, this was a very old posting of mine, I am very glad to be able to tell you that my husband is still amazing the oncologist( he is determined to outlive him ..) and his last CT scan in March is totally clear no sign of Cancer anywhere, since my original posting I went through a real hard time trying to find high quality Pau d'Arco (my original supplier retired), I found plenty of people selling the tea but none of them had any guarantees as to its purity or even if it was the correct species, most of them when pressed said well...it smells right and looks okay, some herb places send me stuff that looked like wood shavings, or even chunks of wood!! I became so frustrated that I have started my own small company, I now import the highest quality tea available in North America from Brazil, I have a website at www.herb-care.com, the site has only recently been started about 2 months ago, and I am still adding to it, (its been quite an experience)..The tea is lab tested for contaminates and every batch issued with a certificate of authenticity, it is also the correct "tea cut". From the first shipment I recieved I was happy, you could literally taste the difference.
I intend to educate everyone I can about the benefits of Pau d'arco and Alternatives in general, I am learning more every day and become more and more outraged by the medical establishment for not letting people know that these alternatives exist and in fact ...Yes.. I am going to say it CURE!!!
Wishing you all Good Health and enlightenment,
