Does anyone have the experience that Pau Darco is anti-babesia?

When googling pau darco (that contains lapachol and beta-lapachones) I found this study but I have never heard anyone with babesia has used pau darco in the treatment...

From http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.3109/14756366.2014.958083
” Specifically, the naturally-occurring naphthoquinones lapachol and α- and β-lapachones have a broad spectrum antimalarial activity against the erythrocytic and liver stages in both chloroquine-sensitive and chloroquine-resistant strains[6], [14].

Like atovaquone, these naphthoquinones affect Plasmodium growth, in part, by impairing mitochondrial function, which affects the electron transport flux and subsequently prevents hemozoin formation [15], [16].

In view of this, naphthoquinones are considered promising antimalarial agents. In recent years, chemical modifications in the naphthoquinone backbone, as well as in the side chain, have identified derivatives with enhanced antimalarial activity[17]–[22].”

I've used various napthoquinones to treat whatever protozoan I have and had good results. Nothing has eradicated them and they come back, but I can definitely tell they are beneficial.

There was a nathoquinone in late stage clinical trials a while back but haven't heard anything about it lately.

Thank you for sharing your experience!

What nathoquinones have you been taking (I haven't heard of this term before I googled Pau Darco)? Which more herbs consists of nathoquinones?

I have used pau d'arco for years for inflammation and pain.

At the first sign of a cold I use it as an anti-viral and anti-bacterial.

It is also a mild detoxer as it can have a mild laxative effect. Which, if you have anything, you do want to keep your bowels moving so nothing just sits in there.

@PeteZa: I have read about the laxative effect but unfortunately I seem to get the opposit effect since starting with it... but thanks to psylliumhusk and mgoxide it's now working fine again 😊.
