(Pepperbark Tree, Isibhaha, Peperbasboom, Manaka, Shibaha, Mulanga, Amazwecehlabayo)
ANTIMICROBIAL AND ANTIFUNGAL
HISTORY AND TRADITIONAL USE
The pungent inner bark of the Pepperbark tree is the most valuable and well known of the natural African antimicrobials, and both the bark and leaves have been used, equally successfully, for centuries. Warburgia has traditionally been used to treat yeast infections (such as Candida albicans – the cause of oral, oesophageal and vaginal thrush), as well as all kinds of fungal, bacterial (including Escherichia coli), parasitic and protozoal infections.
It is a very effective treatment for cystitis and bladder infections and is an excellent natural antibiotic in general. Warburgia is also a good adjunct to allopathic antibiotic treatment if chosen. It is a first-rate treatment for headaches, the common cold and influenza, and is particularly effective for healing conditions of the respiratory system, including treating coughs, chest congestion (being a superb expectorant) and bronchial infections / bronchitis. It is also very effective for clearing the sinuses.
In addition, Warburgia has traditionally found use as an aphrodisiac, in treating malaria, mouth and gastric ulcers, dermatological disorders, rheumatism, various sexually transmitted diseases, constipation and, due to it’s general analgesic qualities, even toothache.
