Chaparral is nicknamed “creosote bush” which gets its name from the oil that is used to treat wood. The word ‘chaparral’ is the Spanish for a low-growing shrub. In Mexico, Chaparral has been used for centuries as an anti-cancer remedy. North American Indian tribes used the “creosote bush” for ailments relating to sepsis (bacteria) and elimination. This plant is of particular efficacy for cleansing the lymph system. It is so powerful, that parasites will leave the body, while dangerous microbes will also leave or succumb to it. Many universities have tested Chaparral and found it aids in dissolving tumors and in fighting cancer. Chaparral is famous for its role in combating cancer, by virtue of its primary constituent, NDGA (nordihydroquaiaretic acid), a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-tumor agent. It is a strong anti-oxidant, painkiller and antiseptic. Chaparral tones the system, rebuilds tissues and is a very effective healer for the urethral tract, blood, liver and lymphatic system.
