Dr. Bob was a M.D. and healer 65 years.  He was a diabetic who lived to 108 years.  Dr. Bob had a photographic memory and he read tremendous amounts of research in order to find cures and treatments for all conditions.  He spent a great amount of time reading all he could find on herbs and medicines of South America.  He found a few gems as he called them, including the herb Chanca Piedra.

Chanca Piedra is an herb found in tropical areas including the rainforests of the Amazon, the Bahamas, and China.  Chanca Piedra gained worldwide attention in the late 1980's due to the plant's antiviral activity against Hepatitis B.  Preliminary clinical trials with Pniruri. the botanical name for Chanca Piedra, on children with infective hepatitis using an Indian drug containing Phyllanthus niruri as the main ingredient showed promising results which led to more vitro and in vivo studies.  There were a few conflicting studies in the beginning but also there was no extract standardization, species used, and location harvested.  Research conducted from 1990-1995 has indicated that Chanca Piedra does demonstrate antiviral activity against Hepatitis B.  Also important is there have been no side effects or toxicity reported in any of the clinical studies or in its many years of reported use in herbal medicine.

Dr. Bob advised using Chanca Piedra for Hepatitis B.  He said its long years of success for antiviral activity in the literature of South America along with its non-toxic effects make it ideal for a disease that right now has no cure and is suspected of infecting millions.  Even the clinical trials indicate Chanca Piedra may have positive benefit to aid in improving or curing Hepatitis B.

Currently research seems to be moving slowly on determining if Chanca Piedra is a cure for Hepatitis B.  One reason research is probably moving slowly is Chanca Piedra is not a patentable substance so there is no profit incentive to put it through costly trials.  Therefore because of its success in South America and its lack of any side effects in studies, Dr. Bob said to consider Chanca Piedra for hepatitis B.

Note – In order for these nutritional ideas to be successful, you must use supplements of the highest quality. Dr. Bob often said, “almost all supplement companies produce poor quality.”  You can consider the product page of this web site. Almost all the products met Dr. Bob’s approval.  Since he passed away we have attempted to keep the same high standards.
