The chaparral herb in the Bundy videos is growing in abundance on their ranch. It is also known as greasewood. It is one of the best antioxidants in the world along with being a natural antibiotic, antifungal etc. It is used for common colds, tumors/cancer, gall bladder stones, kidney stones and a huge number of other ailments. It is very a powerful detoxifier and must be used starting with small amounts like a cup of tea a day. Increase it as tolerated.
It can be cleaned by soaking in the sink for 20 min in plain water with a squeeze of lemon juice and ½ tsp. of Celtic sea salt. A large amount of chaparral can be cleaned in this way. Rinse with plain water and dry on a towel. Place a small piece about two inches in a cup and fill with boiling water and cover for 10 min and drink.
Also, it can be used for a foot soak for fungus and other rashes, bad teeth etc. One can look it up on the net for other uses. It is free out there on the ranch and it is one of nature’s very best.
It would do the militia well to drink a cup per day as a prophylactic.
Also, I have lived in the desert many years and for 20yrs have never had a clothes dryer. Clothes dry on a line in less time for a dryer to dry them. The sun is a great sterilizer as well.
The health benefits of the Chaparral Herb includes its blood-cleansing and anti-tumor effects.
The plant of the chaparral herb is native to and commonly found in the desert regions of southwestern United States and Mexico. The chaparral plant is named theLarrea tridentatein honor of the 18th century Spaniard Juan Antonio Hernandez de Larrea, a patron of science.
Common names of chaparral plants include “greasewood” and “creosote bush”.
Medicinal properties and uses of chaparral
The chaparral herb is said to have analgesic, expectorant, as well as strong anti-inflammatory properties.
Chaparral is also said to have high antioxidant content, which can protect one against the cell damage which leads to cancer. Some studies on laboratory rats suggest that chaparral does inhibit the growth of tumors, while the treated animals also survived significantly longer than the ones in the control group.
Pharmacology manuals state that chaparral contains Nordihydroguaiaretic acid. In the Merck Manual, a highly regarded medical book, this chemical is listed as an anti-oxidant, and its therapeutic category is an “anti-neoplastic”. Broadly, an anti-neoplastic is defined as “an agent that prevents the development, growth and proliferation of malignant cells”.
Chaparral is a good body and blood purifier. Dr Schulze describes the herbs in his Detox Formula as “classic and traditional blood and lymph cleansing tonics and the ones that I used successfully for many years in my clinic”.
Modes of use
Chaparral leaf and the twigs of the plant are used to make chaparral tea, an old Indian remedy.
A word of caution here – chaparral is very strong tasting, and many people find it rather unpleasant to consume.
Caution when using chaparral
Currently, chaparral is banned in the United States as the authorities say it has toxic effects on the liver. This, in my view, is quite laughable as the herb continues to be used by many people in many countries, on its own or as part of the herbal formulas mentioned above, to good effect. I drink it myself. This kind of irony in fact exists for many types of herbs.
It is possible that the claimed isolated cases of liver damage, if any at all, were due to the strong detoxification effects of the herb increasing the load on the liver, above what it could handle.
In one article which I had read, it was claimed that a woman who had taken chaparral supplements and then suffered liver damage, was in fact also consuming large amounts of prescription drugs. Of course, the blamed was squarely placed on the chaparral herb, with no mention of the drugs made at all.
