Chagas Disease: Treatment and Natural Herbal Remedies for “New AIDS”
Nicolas Carrasco, a Bolivian herbal doctor, used a herbal remedy called “Regenerator” to cure Chagas disease. The remedy contains a resin from the fruit of the Rotan palm tree (Calamus drago), called Sangre de Drago (Blood of the Dragon). The plant’s seeds are toasted, crushed, added to a small glass of pisco liquor, and drunk daily. The remedy purges the body of toxic fluids, warms body and expels cold-dampness in blood. The fresh seeds contain acetic acid, butyric acid, glyceride, and castor oil, which form a powerful purgative. This remedy is used against the constipation sometimes caused by the infestation of T. cruzi parasites in the intestine.
