Question: I want to make a traditional Ecuadorian drink called colada morada, and I have NO IDEA where to find some of the ingredients. Here's what I need: Scientific name - common name (part I need for the recipe) Solanum quitoense - naranjilla, lulo (fruit) Myrcianthes hallii - arrayan (leaf) Amaranthus caudatus - ataco, amaranth (whole reddish purlple flowering head) Ocotea quixos - ishpingo, american cinnamon (fruit/flower calyx) Vaccinium myttillus - mortino, andean blue berry, bilberry (fruit) Carica pentagona - babaco, mountain papaya, champagne fruit (fruit) Aloysia triphylla - hierba luisa, lemon verbena (leaf) I would like to find it all in fresh form, but the herbs I would take dried if nothing else is available. If anyone has info on where to buy or at least look for these ingredients, I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks in advance! I'm in Oregon... not much of an Ecuadorian population here.

Amaranthus (grown as an ornamental) and lemon verbena (vervain) are easy to grow, though you might have to get the seeds over the internet. You can buy amaranth seed ready to cook and eat at a natural food store. I'm not sure if it's the seed you're interested in. I seem to recall having seen lemon verbena at a specialty grocer that had a lot of herbs during the season. You might find it at a farmer's market if there is a booth like that. The others I don't know anything about, and there is no Ecuadoran population in my area.

I have a great book on amazon herbs in which several are indicated for tumor reduction or specific cancers. Una de Gato, or Cat's Claw has recieved a lot of attention but there are many others. FROM WIKI: Some ingredients appear to act as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer agents.[5] As a homeopathic treatment, Cat's Claw is used to treat intestinal ailments such as Crohn's disease, gastric ulcers and tumors, parasites, colitis, gastritis, diverticulitis and leaky bowel syndrome, while manufacturers claim that U. tomentosa can also be used in the treatment of AIDS in combination with AZT, the treatment and prevention of arthritis and rheumatism, diabetes, PMS, chronic fatigue syndrome, prostate conditions,[6] immune modulation,[7] Lyme disease[8] and systemic lupus erythematosus.[9] A 2005 review of the scholarly literature on Cat's Claw indicates there is supporting evidence toward its use in treating cancer, inflammation, viral infection and vascular conditions, and for its use as an immunostimulant, antioxidant, antibacterial and CNS-related agent.[5]

This is the herbal/supplement on-line offering from Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, a large well funded cancer hospital in NYC. Look here to see if it is listed: http://www.mskcc.org/mskcc/html/58481.cf... or if you find the name of the herb, look here for studies and information: http://medlineplus.gov/ go to "Drugs and Supplements". Lot of other resources here, too, like upcoming studies and alternative treatments.

When starting an herb garden, or any garden for that matter, you must first know the basics: Soil. Do you have the right soil? The perfect soil for growing almost anything is called "loam". It has a crumb-like structure, holds water better, allows air to pass through. Adding compost does wonder because it is considered an over-all soil enhancer. For potted herbs and plants, it's best to start with a good potting mix: 2 parts sterile potting soil, 1 part perlite and 1 part compost. Regular garden soil is too heavy for potted plants. Sun. The amount of sunlight your garden area receives will dictate the type of plants. If you have lots of sunlight, pick plants that thrive best under full sun. Otherwise, chose plants that can do well in low-light conditions. Amount of natural water. If you have frequent rains in your area, you might want to consider using raise beds so that you're plants won't drown with too much water. If your area is rather arid, then frequent watering is required. Most herbs are sun-lovers and do not want to sit in soggy soil. Actually, most herbs are killed by overwatering than underwatering. They can tolerate a certain amount of neglect and still grow well. But most of them likes warm to hot weather and do not take frost very well. A lot of herbs are perfect for container gardening, as much as they are in ground. The advantage of container gardening is you can easily move them to more suitable places. Like a shady area when it gets too hot. Or move them indoors to protect them from frost during winter. Culinary herbs are also usually grown indoors in windowsill herb garden so they are readily available when you need them. The best tip really when starting a garden is to know your soil, your environment and find plants that suit them. This way you'll have an easy time in the garden rather than struggling to keep everything alive.

Dear NoneofY- The first disease sounds like something called Pemphigus. Pemphigus is a group of rare autoimmune diseases that cause blistering of the skin and mucous membranes (mouth, nose, throat, eyes, and genitals). Some forms of the disease, including the most common form, may be fatal if left untreated. What Causes Pemphigus? Normally, our immune system produces antibodies that attack viruses and harmful bacteria to keep us healthy. In people with pemphigus, however, the immune system mistakenly attacks the cells in the epidermis, or top layer of the skin, and the mucous membranes. The immune system produces antibodies against proteins in the skin known as desmogleins. These proteins form the glue that keeps skin cells attached to keep the skin intact. When desmogleins are attacked, skin cells separate from each other and fluid can collect between the layers of skin, forming blisters that do not heal. In some cases, these blisters can cover a large area of skin. It is unclear what triggers the disease, although it appears that some people have a genetic susceptibility. Environmental agents may trigger the development of pemphigus in people who are likely to be affected by the disease because of their genes. In rare cases, it may be triggered by certain medications. In those cases, the disease usually goes away when the medication is stopped. Is Pemphigus Contagious? Pemphigus is not contagious. It does not spread from person to person. Is Pemphigus Hereditary? Though there can be a genetic predisposition to develop pemphigus, there is no indication the disease is hereditary. Who Gets Pemphigus? Pemphigus affects people across racial and cultural lines. Research has shown that certain ethnic groups (such as the eastern European Jewish community and people of Mediterranean descent) are more susceptible to pemphigus. A particular type of pemphigus occurs more frequently in people who live in the rain forests of Brazil. Men and women are equally affected. Research studies suggest a genetic predisposition to the disease. Although the onset usually occurs in middle-aged and older adults, all forms of the disease may occur in young adults and children. What Are the Different Types of Pemphigus? There are several types of pemphigus and other similar blistering disorders. The type of disease depends on what level in the skin the blisters form and where they are located on the body. Blisters always occur on or near the surface of the skin, which is called the epidermis. People with pemphigus vulgaris, for example, have blisters that occur within the lower layer of the epidermis, while people with pemphigus foliaceus have blisters that form in the topmost layer. The type of antibody that is attacking the skin cells may also define the type of disease present. To find more, do a SEARCH on Google or elsewhere on your computer for PEMPHIGUS FACT SHEET. You could do the same for GRAVES DISEASE FACT SHEET.
