I know that I've posted a lot about the many benefits of Chanca Piedra in the past, but that was a while ago. So this is really a refresher for any new members of EC who might like to consider supplementing this wonderful herb. See this page.
I have used the decoction of CP on a man who had painful arthritis in one knee which was swollen to the size of a small football. He couldn't walk anymore. After five days of taking the CP decoction, the knee was back to normal with no pain and he could walk again. Little known also that CP has such remarkable anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties like this.
But if you take CP, you must take it as a tea or decoction -- this is the best and most absorbable way to take it. I also do not trust tablets that undergo chemical processing and have unnecessary additives -- as this can hinder proper absorption into the body.
So if you buy CP -- try and get the organic powder from a good and honest organic seller like the one shown in this link:
Thank you for your article on Chanca Piedra. It recommended 5-10 drops of the tincture. My bottle says 30 drops a day. I was wondering why there is a difference? Also, if you take it once a year for 12 weeks as you suggested would that prevent kidney stones?
