How can Taheebo or Pau d’arco Cause Such a Rioting Demontration?
(Taheebo or Pau D Arco is also known as, Ipe Roxo, Lapacho, Ipes and Trumpet Brush)
When a tree bark is found to have many healing properties, people are bound to get emotional if they’re deprived of it, and the government steps in to BAN it. Here is part of the little told amazing story of Pau D Arco (Taheebo) …
“When in Canada, pau d’arco [taheebo] became widely reputed as an alternative treatment for cancer, the Health Protection Branch of the federal government (Canada’s Food and Drug Adminitration) classified the bark as a “new drug.” For a time, this effectively banned its sale, but not without protest.
In the East, crowds demonstrated in front of the Parliament building in the nation’s capital. In the West, at the U.S./Canada border near Vancouver, the six-o’clock news panned protestors decked in Boston Tea Party garb waving placards and shouting “Free the tea!”
The government edict still stands, but I have yet to find a health food or herb store in Canada that today doesn’t carry the bark.
Pau d’arco finally reached the united States in 1981. It all began with a newspaper article highlighting the news from O’Cruzeiro in the 1960′s.(4) In the same year, one botanist announced that the bark was “threatening to become a second laetrile.” (5)
At the time, he made no exaggeration. In one of the earliest voices of the laetrile therapy, the Cancer News Journal, author and herbalist Louise Tenney provided many examples of Americans with cancer in remission after they drank the tea. (6-8)
In 1983, a Florida writer traced accounts extending from the Caribbean to Canada. In Houston a a woman had used the bark to treat diabetes. She was able to reduce her insulin dosage by 50 percent and her average blood sugar level dropped by more than half.
A doctor in Fort Lauderdale had several patients “saved” from cancer, a woman in Illinois was in remission from skin cancer, and a nurse in New Jersey had provided the bark to three diabetics. The nurse report that after seventy-two hours all through had found they could reduce their insulin intake by half, just like the woman in Houston. (9)”

Penny discusses Taheebo on a Life Force product training call …
Taheebo is an extract also known as Pau D Arco, Ipe Roxo, Lapacho, Ipes and Trumpet Brush. Extracted from the inner heartwood of the Lapacho tree found only in the ozone-pure high Andes of South America, Taheebo is a powerful herb. Purple in color, the Lapacho tree was named the “Giver of Life” by the highly advanced Incas, and they used it as their primary medicine.
Analysis of the bark indicates that a derivative known as lapachol has antibiotic, antifungal, Immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. The entire extract also regulates sugar levels, promotes digestion and appears to strengthen cellular structure while eliminating pain.
The Lapacho tree (aka Pau D’Arco) remains remarkably immune to the common fungal spores that infest and typically kill many neighboring trees in the rain forest. Lapachol, a key active component in Taheebo, has demonstrated broad-spectrum immune support.* It is a staple for many seeking a holistic approach to better health.
Beyond lapachol, Taheebo is a phyto-nutrient powerhouse. Also unlike most Taheebo commonly available as dried bark in loose tea or capsule form, Life Force’s is a 100% liquid extract from the purple Lapacho tree, ideal for mixing with other liquids.
Clinical studies show Taheebo has no contraindications, no incompatibilities and has proven to be non-toxic. No wonder this revered and beautiful tree has been used to treat almost every disease or condition imaginable. The Incas immortalized it by carving a several hundred-foot representation on the side of a mountain.
