Ringworm Tree (cassia alta)
As its common name suggests Ringworm tree/ bush or cassia alta (also known as acapulko in Tagalaog, kasitas in my mother’s dialect,gelanggang in malay, or candlestick bush, wild senna… It has so many names) which grows in Singapore, malaysia, Philippines, the amazon… Can cure ringworm or buni..
Tatay developed buni or ringworm on his left foot after drinking olive leaf tea, which I think is a healing reaction, he didnt clean his colon and liver so the reactions manifested on the skin instead of down and out in the bowels… He saw the bush on the sidewalk and pointed it to nanay, he said its supposed to cure ringworm but he forgot how it is applied. Nanay remembered that it is called kasitas in the Bicolano dialect. I googles it and found it in stuart exchange.
However, i followed wikipedia’s version on how to make a poultice out of the leaves and stems, i added olive oil and blended the leaves, stems and oil until it looked like a wet cotton wool.
I applied it on tatay’s skin last night and we saw immediate improvement this morning. 25 percent of the scab is gone. The redness, swelling and it itchiness down by almost 60 percent. It probably works for eczema flare ups.
after 24 hours
