Had treated a woman with a difficult yeast infection. “Two hours after using the tea as a douche the vaginal yeast infection was cleared up nicely,” he says.

Phyllis Saifer, M.D., a clinical ecologist from Berkeley
reports good results from members of the Environmental Illness Association who are now using Pau D’Arco. Two members who previously experienced incapacitating cerebral symptoms now claim to be in good health with few or no remaining symptoms. One of the victims had been taking 16 Nystatin pills (an anti-yeast medication) daily. She now takes one every 7 days.
