What Is Chanca Piedra?

A member of the Phyllanthus genus, it has been suggested that Chanca Piedra can provides numerous health benefits.

It's indigenous to the rainforests of the Amazon where it grows "weed like", the Spanish given name of Chanca Piedra translates as "stone-crusher" or "stone-breaker" and therein lies a clue as to it's main health benefit.

It has long been used by native people as a therapeutic herb for liver, kidney, gall and bladder health.

Although indigenous to the Amazon, Chancapiedra is also found in China, India and the Bahamas who's populations have also found the same health benefits from using the weed like herb.

It's actually amazing that a small weed like plant can have such incredible health benefits. Despite the fact that it has been pretty much spurned by Western medicine, Chanca Piedra has a real reputation in the sub tropical areas in which it is found.

The Main Health Benefits of Chanca Piedra

As I mentioned the name suggests the cure of gallstones and kidney stones. And, with over 20 million cases of this complaint in the U.S each year alone, it's incredible that Chanca Piedra is not more widely used? Especially when you consider the acute pain these complaints cause in sufferers.These "stones" form due to a build up of calcium-oxalate crystals which over time form into the "stone" and cause pain through blockage and inflammation.

The normal (Western) course of action for kidney and gallstones is antibiotics and painkillers. But these are essentially ineffective treating the symptom,s rather than the cause.The end result is normally surgery for an "absolute" cure, even though the underlying problem may well remain! So how does this amazing herb remove kidney stones and gallstones? Firstly it has been suggested that it promotes an increase in magnesium in the kidney.

Magnesium has been proven to break down kidney stones. It also increases Vitamin B6 which reduces the acidity of your urine and also expunges calcium oxalate. It also helps stop the crystals reforming. It is also thought that some elements within Chanca Piedra act as a pain killer in the kidney therefore reducing the pain of stones even before they are dissolved, this same element also acts as a mild muscle relaxant to further help pain relief and reduce inflammation.

It also thought that Chance Piedra acts as a mild diuretic helping the kidney keep a steady flow or urine and therefore better overall kidney health. In fact a German study in the 1960's found that 94% of all gall and kidney stones treated with Chanca Piedra were cured... yet it is still not widely accepted by Western medicine?

Chanca Piedra is also known as an efficient way in which to generally detox liver, kidney, gall and bladder as well.

Like you, I like a nice cold beer or a nice glass of big red wine, but I have found that taking this herd has helped me massively as far as liver, kidney and general renal health is concerned.

Other suggested traditional uses of Chanca Piedra for health benefit include the treatment of diabetes, prostate disorders, asthma, fever, indigestion and constipation. Not to mention it's pain killing, muscle relaxant and anti inflammatory properties. I have also heard it can be used for the expulsion of parasites as well!

At last! But, what I had come to realise is that all of the products

the "Gurus" peddle are very specific. That's to say they address one

(normally minor) issue within the great IM scheme of things...and then

tell you this is the holy grail.

All this weight of proof is provided and, yes, you've guessed it, both

you and I get sold!

But...no-one tells you the basics!

If I wanted to be totally outrageous and highly controversial I could

suggest that the Gurus find a technqiue that works, flog it until it's

dead for them, and then...and only then bundle it up into a product for

"the masses". Cynical? Maybe not!

And most of the huge amount information circling around is useless and

recycled rubbish. yes it's wheeled out with some very sophisticated

marketing, and of course it's easy to buckle under the weight of

information and sales crap flying at you.

Still, no-one bothers to teach the basics! How to do buy a domain? Set

up your cpanel? Do BASIC market research? All key issues to the new

Internet Marketer.

Now a BIG Guru may counter that you should outsource all of that. Great

if you can afford it, but I know I couldn't when I first started.

Besides...I have a some sort of personality disorder that dictates that

I HAVE to understand everything...yes it held me back :>)

So, Lee and I were talking about this huge issue back in September

(2009) and we made a "quality" decision that someone needed to provide

that very basic "how to" Internet Marketing information.

Then we made the most crazy decision of our lives and decided that we

were going to do just that!

Then we surpassed ourselves and made the most crazy decision of our

lives for a second time...and decided that not only we were going to do

it...we were going to do it totally FREE of charge.

"But it will take a long time and a lot of work", I protested.

But Lee was having none of it, the bit was between his teeth.

He had decided "it was about time those "smoke and mirrors" were torn

down, the crap was "cut through" and the information made freely

available to all who wanted it".

So, we sat down, got some very strong coffee and talked about it. And

we reasoned why we should want to take on this mammoth task!

In the end it came down to two things.

Firstly, the online world has passed the recession by - the best

mananged online businesses have continued to make profits all the way

through. In fact, many have seen growth.
So, knowing how diffiuclt it was for us to get started, we felt it was

a something of a moral crusade to make the basic information freely

available to anyone who wanted to give it a "go" in Internet Marketing.

Secondly we figured that if we did this and did it well, we'd be making

a huge amount of training available free. Therefore we would build a

huge amount of trust with a huge amount of people...clearly this is

very good in a karma sort of way.

So, if we achieved that trust and helped loads of people, we knew good

things would flow back to us in the longer run. Maybe it's a leap of

faith, but I think not.

So, it took us just over four months to give birth to Internet
