Why Do People Use Jatoba?

Practitioners believe that the use of Hymenea courbaril (Jatoba) preparations, like jatoba powder, may have benefits for individuals suffering from acute or chronic prostatitis and cystitis. Most of the practitioners are now realizing that most of the chronic conditions are fungal in nature rather than being bacterial. The widespread use of antibiotics helps in killing the bacteria, but promotes the growth of fungus. Use of antibiotics suppresses the immune system to such a level that it can potentiate the growth of fungus. When the cases of chronic cystitis or prostatitis respond quickly to jatoba powder, it is perhaps due to the anti-fugal properties of jatoba rather than its anti-bacterial properties. Natural health practitioners in the US are learning of jatobá's many purposes and utilize it as a natural medicine for cystitis and prostatitis and as an effective and healthful tonic for added energy (without any harmful or caffeine stimulants) and for a number of yeast and fungal problems for example athlete foot, candida, stubborn nail fungus and yeast infections.
