Effective naturopathic protocols to treat specific diseases and conditions are coming soon!

Big News and an Important Update!

I’ve re-evaluated my project on publishing a 2nd edition to my book.  For years, the only negative feedback I’ve gotten on my book is that it’s just too big, too much information, and too hard to figure out what to take and how much to take if you were looking for a herbal remedy to treat a specific disease or condition.  So, I have a good plan now to fix that.

I spent 20 years working with these rainforest plants as a practitioner and developing formulas that were specific remedies for specific diseases and conditions.  My company couldn’t disseminate that information because of FDA regulations. But, what we could say to a trained health professional was different than what we could say to someone looking for help with a specific disease or condition or put on a website. So, for many years we sold most of the remedy specific formulas only to health practitioners and direct to consumers from our website who were referred to a particular remedy by their practitioner (because many of our practitioners wanted to spend their time treating their patients and not selling herbal supplements).  I spent over 15 years running around the country giving lectures and seminars to 1,000's of practitioners teaching them how to use the rainforest plants and formulas with the naturopathic protocols I developed to treat and cure specific diseases and conditions.  Raintree had 1,000's of practitioner accounts and they used these protocols to treat their patients with them, They often gave feedback, and I personally consulted with quite a few of them on their harder patients, and based on that feedback and results, sometimes protocols changed, formulas changed, and even new formulas were created.  Most all of these protocols focused on treating the underlying cause of the disease (which most mainstream medical doctors miss) and not just treating symptoms, which is why they were so effective.

Now that I no longer sell any herbal supplements and am in no way affiliated or compensated by any herbal supplement manufacturer, I can now share these effective protocols on how to treat diseases and conditions with herbal remedies with one and all.  These protocols will also include non-rainforest supplements as well as dietary recommendations, because they were always developed to achieve the best results and not just to promote specific products.

So before (and maybe instead of) writing the 2nd edition of my book I’m going to start writing a series of quick and easy to read e-books than can be downloaded from amazon.com that will tell folks exactly what to take and why, as well as how much to take and for how long to address a specific disease or condition.  I still need to take the time to download, read, and assimilate all the new research on these rainforest plants and other newer non-rainforest supplement products because I can already tell, based on research I’ve seen so far, some of my previous protocols will change. I want these new naturopathic protocols to be as effective as possible with the latest research available.

Cancer, IBS & Crohn’s, lots of different autoimmune diseases (including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and lupus), diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, Lyme’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, psoriasis, herpes, hepatitis, kidney stones, UTIs (especially the re-occurring ones), multi-drug resistant infections. . .  I have lots of effective protocols and lots of ebooks to write since each one will deal with just the one disease/condition. This will make it easier to find specifically what you’re looking for (and quicker for me to write and get out there). I am excited to finally be able to share these protocols with the world!  Maybe after I get these ebooks written and out there helping folks, I’ll take the time to continue the 2nd edition of my book, or I maybe I’ll just rewrite and update the Tropical Plant Database pages on the plants instead. We’ll see.

My book publisher (Square One) will publish these ebooks. They are great at editing my run-on sentences, too-long paragraphs, and typos. They’re also great at typesetting and designing cutting edge ebooks with all that new technology I don’t want to take the time to learn and getting the word out there about them. So I can’t just offer them for free (they said NO WAY!). But I promise they’ll be inexpensive (around $5-6) and well worth the price if you are one of many people reading my book and/or my website just trying to figure out what to take to treat your specific problem or if you’re a practitioner wanting to help your patients with effective treatments. Certainly a lot cheaper than buying my whole book!

I will still be uploading the new research into the Tropical Plant Database Pages under the “Published Research” section at the bottom of the database page.  But you won’t be seeing any new book text since I’m spending all my time now to get all the new research downloaded and into my protocols as quickly as possible so I can start on the disease-specific booklets.  You may see me blogging on the plants as I complete the research on some of them when there is just too much good information to share and I can’t wait.  In fact, I’ll be posting a blog page later today on why every diabetic patient should be taking antioxidants immediately and why I am adding them to my diabetes protocols.   It’s those darned antioxidants again!  This will be my third blog on antioxidants and expect to see more!  A staggering amount of clinical research has been published on antioxidants in just the last three years and it’s exciting!

In fact, I am going to take the time to rewrite the book text and upload it in the online plant database this week on camu-camu (an excellent antioxidant). When I published my book in 2005 not a single study had been published on it and none of it’s antioxidant chemicals had been identified yet. I just got finished downloading and reading over 50 studies on camu-camu and most of them were on what it’s now quantified and qualified antioxidant chemicals are doing (confirming and replicating many of the 100's of other research articles I’ve read on antioxidants in other plants recently). The information in my book and database on this plant is just flat out wrong now, so I need to fix that now.

And if you want an idea on what the ebooks might be like, here is a good example. This is what my ebook will basically tell you about treating your high cholesterol:

Learn how to avoid and treat blocked and/or hardened arteries (atherosclerosis/arteriosclerosis)  from the three real causes of this disease which has nothing to do with cholesterol (with just one supplement that I never sold but always used in my protocols that really works really well on all three causes). Here’s all the research and links to show you why cholesterol isn’t the problem and why statin drugs aren’t worth the nasty side effects. Learn what real cholesterol levels should be based on your age (and real unbiased research) instead of the cholesterol levels that your doctor tells you which is based solely on what the drug companies who sell statin drugs train your doctor on using biased and flawed research designed to sell more of their drugs.  Here’s links to unbiased research that will show you if follow their protocols and lower your cholesterol to their recommended levels you are more likely to develop heart failure and dementia and your lifespan will be shorter not longer. If you’re still not convinced (or you’re one of the 10% of people who have heredity/gene issues which cause much more cholesterol than needed), here’s how to lower your cholesterol by interfering with digestive enzymes that will block fat absorption without all the nasty side effects of statin drugs (choose one of these three supplements for that purpose).  If you’re still not convinced and you just can’t give up your statin drugs (hey, it’s your body and your choice), here are two supplements to take that will prevent most of the side effects of statin drugs and help you avoid heart failure and dementia (one of which your cardiologist absolutely knows about and should have told you about). And by the way, look at this interesting research that says the plaque in your mouth can often (not always) directly relate to the plague in your arteries.  Increased stubborn dental plaque should be the first clue that you may have a problem now with arterial blockages (or may in the future). Dentists might be able to identify unknown and un-diagnosed arterial blockages that could help prevent heart attacks and strokes. (There was a whole group of integrative dentists I taught this to and they LOVED it and confirmed it.)

I’m thinking I might rock a few boats when these kinds of protocols get out there to the folks who need them, don’t you? Especially when folks start using them and they work.

Now, I’m back to finish writing my new antioxidant/diabetes blog and camu-camu book text.

Stay tuned, seems like there will always be more to come for quite a while!

    1. Well Dario, it was sorta all your fault. It was you asking me for Lyme's protocols that made me start thinking about this. I have protocols, they worked, and they need to be updated. But I was too busy with the book writing... And like I suggested for Lyme's, I'll probably put up a blog page for each booklet/protocol/disease where people can ask questions, and share their results (good or bad), and other things they are taking which seems to be helping. I'm excited about the possibilities!

    1. Greetings Dr. Taylor - a question for you to consider in an e-book or on your blog ... I know how busy you are! It's been my understanding over the years that Cat's Claw is a neuroprotective and quite possibly passes the blood-brain barrier. I am further of the understanding that it is the tetracyclic oxidole alkaloids that are neuroprotective, not the pentacyclic. I've noted over the last 10 years or so that people with neurological issues stemming from Lyme disease, people using TOA-Free varieties of Cat's Claw, were adding Gou Teng - "Chinese Cat's Claw" - to the TOA-Free varieties when they were suffering with neurological issues. It's also my understanding that Gou Teng is to a large extent loaded with tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids. I believe ethnobotanist Stephen Buhner has recommended the addition of Gou Teng to Lyme protocols for people with Lyme-related neurological issues. What do you think? Finally, I am, of course, talking about Cat's Claw as Uncaria tomentosa and Gou Teng as Uncaria rhynchophylla. Which brings me to so-called "European Cat's Claw", Uncaria guianensis, which I understand to be rich in tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids, primarily used for osteoarthritis. Is there, in your view, another and perhaps under-reported use for neurological protections or active issues? Please weigh in when you can. This, potentially, in my view is of great importance to Lyme and other patients and the doctors who treat them. As always, thank you.

    2. I still think the whole POA/TOA thing is more about marketing and not as much about the overall actions and benefits of cat's claw. Why are they even bothering with TOA free cat's claw and then adding another product? Regular Peruvian harvested cat's claw has both TOAs and POAs. Uncaria rhynchophylla does have more TOAs but the total amount of alkaloids is still small. The main problem I have with the rhynchophylline studies is the dosages used. One 2018 study was using the actual isolated rhynchophylline alkaloid in dosages of 30-60 mg/kg in body weight. Do the math... how many POUNDs of cat's claw would you have to take of any of the three Uncaria species to get this same amount of Rhynchophylline alkaloids??? Most of the real benefits in these studies were shown in their in vitro work, not in the lab animals (like it didn't block the proteins to block amyloid plaque formation in the animals but it did in the test tube). A better option for neuroprotection at more reasonable dosages might be samambaia and kallawalla/calaguala. These Polypodium ferns have neuroprotective, anti-amyloid and neuro-regenerative actions and are the subject of double blind human studies on Alzheimer's and dementia patients with achievable dosages. In Europe a herbal Polypodium drug is sold called anapsos for these two conditions. These plants also have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory actions, much like cat's claw. If you want to buy two products, buy a regular cat's claw and a polypodium product. The other plant that may be even better than cat's claw or samambaia for the brain is amor seco. It has a significant amount of a chemical called vitexin which is an excellent neuroprotective, neuro-regenerative, cellular protective antioxidant and would reduce/prevent the oxidative stress causing many of the problems as well. You can see some of the studies here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=vitexin+neuroprotective Based on some of the new links between infectious diseases and neurodegenerative diseases, (for example https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28049398) vitexin might be better. Not sure yet. I'm sure I'll review all this info more in-depth when I do my new Naturopathic protocol for Lyme's.

    3. Hi, Dr. Taylor, I've been referring to your rain-tree website since you started it and have used, successfully, many of your herbal recommendations. Cat's claw is one of them. I've used cat's claw for my carpal tunnel, my neuropathy of the lower legs and feet, and for my uterus. Three years ago, my gyni told me that I have hyperplasia endometriosis. So, he gave me a prescription. I bought it before researching, only to find out that it said to not use it if one has liver or kidney problems, both of which I have. So, I decided not to take it, and, instead, found solutions on rain-tree. I made different hot teas of cat's claw, sarsaparilla, and raspberry leaf on a daily basis. By the third day, I decided to experiment by combining those three teas into one. I made it in bulk, strained it, and refrigerated it and drank it daily. I did this because drinking three separate teas during the day made me pee too much, plus, I waa, already drinking chanca piedra at night or in the morning for my abdominal organs. Anyhow, after one month, I returned to the doctor and the hyperplasia endometriosis had decreased considerably that the doctor was pleased and said that I was fine. The chanca piedra has done wonders for me, also. Anyhow, since this was the only way to get a message to you, Dr. Taylor, I wanted to refer you to a website from the University of Chicago, joinallofus.org. I think it would be wonderful if you joined this group. You do not have to be a traditional doctor to participate. I can't wait for the day for some medical institution to start allowing their medical staff to recommend herbal medications and even better, to hire licensed naturopaths like you. I so do love what you represent and what you have done for humanity. God bless you, Dr. Taylor! Keep up the wonderful work!

    4. Hi Christine,
      Thank you so much, and you're welcome! I'm so glad you found some benefits from the rainforest plants you learned about on my website! I'll try to find some time to look into the website you recommended.

  3. Dr Taylor, you do 'ROCK'! I wanted to bring to your attention that the bellaco caspi which I think is awesome is not listed in your 'properties & actions, ethnic uses or diseases & conditions' of your website. I mentioned this back a while back and it was indicated that it was an oversight but nothing has ever been updated. Thanks for everything and keep up the excellent work!!!

    1. Thanks! I knew that. (about Bellaco caspi... lol) That disease and condition file and others on the website are from my book. Raintree launched about about a dozen new plants about a year after my book was published and one of those was Bellaco caspi so it never made it in the book or in those resulting web files. I am updating those web files now as I download research and update protocols and hope to have an updated version soon. Stay tuned! And, you're welcome!

    2. Hi Dr. Taylor, unfortunately I do not have a google account, but I am so happy that your blog allows me to submit my comments/questions. I wanted to find out if the Bellaco Caspi extract should reflect the word 'latex' in the ingredient listing with 'bark or leaf' if I am getting the correct formula. I must say that what I have purchased is workinging but I want to make sure that I am not missing anything. Also, what are your thoughts on using Guacatonga and Jatoba as a daily blood cleanser and energy booster? Thanks again for everything that you have done and continue to do making people aware of these wonderful herbs! Take care and God Bless! Dorie

      Delete
    3. When Raintree was selling supplements, we harvested the latex separately from the bark and added that to our bellaco caspi extract. I don't think any manufacturer is doing that today unfortunately. But the bark works well anyway. Both Jatoba and Guacatonga can be taken daily without any problems. I know lots that use Jatoba for it clean energy boost. It's great for that!
      You're welcome and best wishes,

    1. Hi James,
      Thank you very much! The best thing is to leave your email on this blog or a way I can contact you. To be perfectly honest, my plate is very full right now with several major writing projects I'm madly working on. It will be a couple of months before I have the time and mental bandwidth to spend any quality time to look at anything new. I know a bit about quantum physics and quantum mechanics and it's a pretty deep subject! You may want to wait a couple of months to give me time to wrap these pending projects up.

  6. Hi dr. Taylor, is there a herb or a formula that would be useful in alkalizing the body and clearing lactic acidosis? I am reading that acidic environment of the intestinal fluids (I know blood pH is very strictly controlled, so I am thinking of other fluids, ie. urine, saliva) often leads to degenerative diseases. Is there a herb that could be used to help (aside from plant based diet)? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    1. Hi Renata,
      The best "antacids" in the Amazon are carqueja and guacatonga. They can be found in the plant database at http://www.rain-tree.com/plist.htm But these two deal with stomach acid issues. The best way to deal with lactic acid issues is with probiotics. Many species of friendly bacteria in the gut have main roles in fermenting and processing lactic acid more efficently. Do a google search using the words: "lactic acidosis and gut microbiome bacteria" and you'll get lots of information to read. Basically, plant based diets help keep the bacteria in the gut more balanced, but there are some probiotics you can add that will help achieve the same thing. It's a rather involved process that I'm presently writing about presently in my new IBS book. There are lots of other books written on alkaline/acid body types and strategies to balance that which you might find helpful as well.
      Best,
      Leslie

      Delete
    2. Thank you dr. Taylor. I can not wait for your books on different conditions! I searched as you suggested and if I understand this correctly even though friendly bacteria produces lactic acid, by keeping candida, bacteria and parasites in balance - overall consuming probiotics and fermented vegetables, i.e.. sauerkraut, beet kvas, pickles is alkalizing to the body. I make all these foods and we eat alkaline diet, yet still candida seems to have an upper hand and saliva/urine pH seems quite acidic (below 6).

      Delete
    3. There are two main types of bacteria in the gut. One Phylum is called Firmicutes (which contain all the Lactobacillus and Bacillus species that process lactic acid) The other is called Bacteroidetes. These two Phyla make up a very large percentage of the total bacterial species in the gut microbiome by volume and it's not too uncommon to end up with more Firmicutes than Bacteriodetes in your gut. Supplementing with more Bacteriodete species of probiotics (mostly the soil-based probiotics) can lower the number of Firmicutes, and thus help change pH and lactic acid. If you are specifically needing to deal with candida, refer to the formula and its ingredients that I developed called Amazon A-F at http://www.rain-tree.com/amazon-antifungal-support.htm If you want a single plant, by far, jatoba and pau d'arco are the best for candida. Both are better as tinctures and/or decocotions (boiling the plant in water for at least 10 minutes) . Sometimes probiotics just aren't enough to deal with candida.

    2. Thank you for your reply, Ms. Taylor. Does this also apply to the chemicals in the WOOD? With respect to storage, besides storing away from high heat and humidity, is there anything else that should be done? For example, storing the bark and/or wood in a dark and airtight container? Rachel.

      Delete
    3. Yes, it applies to wood and bark. And yes, storing it in an airtight container away from light will be helpful, just make sure the bark and wood is already very dry first.

    1. Hi,

      The best natural remedies I know of for strokes are antioxidants. Some are capable of repairing and or preventing damage to brain cells. One non-rainforest plant has been the subject of an animal study which showed benefits post-stroke due to it's antioxidant effect. See this study on ashwaganda here: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12035-014-8907-2 A rainforest plant called Bitter Melon has been the subject of similar research post-stroke in animals: see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21056650 Some of the best antioxidants with neuroprotective actions from the Amazon are amor seco, picao preto, samambaia, erva tosato, and sarsaparilla. Also, coffee, green tea, and yerba mate have several strong antioxidants that have been reported to be neuroprotective. This full research article will better explain why antioxidants are helpful after a stoke: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4665418/

      Best wishes to you and your family member,

  9. Hello dr. Taylor,

    I have sent you an inquiry for help with Pancreatic Cancer a few days ago, but would like to explain further as you may remember I have asked you about lymphoma a few weeks ago. It is a shocking chain of events I am still coming to terms with. While developing a healing protocol for my 19 year old son on watch and wait for lymphoma/leukemia (and getting his blood counts to normalize over the last year) I started having strange pains first in my right abdomen then in my back as well. Thinking it was gallbladder stones I started taking Chanca Piedra but the pains did not go away.

    Then last week I finally had an ultrasound (here in Canada medical tests are significantly delayed) and it came back as pancreatic cancer with spleen involvement. I believe Chanca Piedra is protecting my liver and kidneys.

    I am not starting from ground zero as I have retired from my business a year ago and spent my days researching ways to heal my son, but I do know time is not on my side. I want to look at herbs as I know many people have successfully used them to heal incurable diseases. I have studied your book and have gotten Ntense-2 for my son (I started taking it today too), but am wondering if N-tense would be more appropriate for myself.

    I am looking for an ND in USA to help me. Unfortunately with pancreatic cancer I want to have as many tools to help me as I can, hence my research continues.

    I know you can not give me medical advice. I am asking for your thoughts of what herbs you would take in my situation.

    Thank you so much for your tremendous research and kindness. I did not mean for this long post to be published (but by all means it can be published if you see value to others in my story), just thought you may want to know why I am asking about a different cancer now.

    Warm regards,
    Renata

    1. Hi Renata,
      So sorry to hear about this recent diagnosis. I can't give you medical advise but, I can say that personally, if I had pancreatic cancer, I would be taking N-Tense along with extra graviola. It would be much better than the N-Tense 2. I'd also add a twice daily decoction of pau d'arco which has some research on several of it's active chemicals being beneficial for pancreatic cancer. I'd also take either cat's claw or Amazon Immune Support to support and boost my immune system to help fight the cancer naturally. You can find more info on these plants and formulas at the raintree website at http://www.rain-tree.com/rtmprod.htm And YES, please find a qualified practitioner ASAP to help you in this battle.
      Best wishes,
      Leslie

    2. Thank you dr. Taylor. I know these herbs from your writings, so will get them right away. Do you know if Green Tea Extract (EGCG) may have any negating effects when taken with herbs? I read that green tea may cancel healing properties of many herbs and even blocked chemotherapy drug bortezomib. I am taking high doses of Curcumin, Vitamin C and Green Tea Extract. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your time and help.

      Ps. I have a really hard time finding an ND familiar with rainforest herbs. I have called many in Canada and USA with limited luck so far (found dr. Lee Cowden only and he specializes in Lyme). I called every company listed on your website for referrals, but they give no referrals. I will keep on searching.

      Delete
    3. Hi Renata,
      I haven't seen any of the research on the green tea extracts so really can't advise you on that one. All of my old Raintree practitioner files are all packed up and in storage so I can't help in practitioner referrals at this point either. So sorry!
