Healing Benefits of Cat's Claw

Healing Benefits of Cat’s Claw

While inflammation has been pinpointed as a part of persistent illness, what has yet to be discovered by medical research is the real story about why this inflammation is present in the first place.

So often the viral explosion in our modern world is to blame. Various strains and varieties (most undiscovered by medical research and science) of the Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, HHV-6, and other herpetic viruses, along with bacteria and parasites, are behind a great many people’s suffering.

To get rid of this widespread inflammation and the other debilitating symptoms of chronic illness, we must get rid of the pathogens. Enter cat’s claw – the herb also known by the Spanish name, uña de gato.

Cat’s Claw is one of the most powerful resources for reversing the epidemic of chronic and mystery illness in the 21st century.

Powerful Ally for Any Illness & Symptom

Cat’s claw is a tropical woody vine whose bark has been harvested for hundreds of years for medicinal purposes. Cat’s claw can aid in alleviating almost any symptom, from neurological to digestive. While cat’s claw has gotten some attention for its healing properties, it is as yet unknown to science that the herb contains bioactive pharma-compounds that supersede synthetic pharmaceuticals.

All too often, antibiotics are employed against certain illnesses such as Lyme disease. The world would be a different place if cat’s claw took the place of antibiotics; the rate of illness would reduce, and recovery would quicken, regardless of the diagnosis for a given illness. Cat’s claw is unique, in that pathogens such as bacteria cannot become resistant to it, as they sometimes can to antibiotics. Cat’s Claw is such an essential support for so many conditions and symptoms.

Adaptogenic Weapon Against Viruses, Bacteria & Parasites

Parasites such as Babesia and bacteria such as Bartonella cannot withstand the wrath of cat’s claw. The herb eliminates these and other bugs without the so-called Horkheimer die-off reaction so common with antibiotics, because the bioactive pharma-compounds in the herb regulate the destruction of pathogens so that it’s at a level the individual person can tolerate. Cat’s claw is also incredible at fighting viruses such as Epstein-Barr virus (almost everyone has at least one of the over 60 varieties of EBV).

Eventually medical research will discover a group of antiviral adaptogens, and scientists will realize that cat’s claw is at the top of that list. The herb is the ultimate secret weapon for battling PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections), ALS, strep throat, MS, mystery aches and pains, and more.

Cat’s Claw is also remarkable for its ability to rid the body of the infamous strep, which is frequently misdiagnosed as yeast or Candida. Millions of women go on antibiotics and antifungals that only end up making problems worse, because the Streptococcus bacteria that causes urinary tract infections is so often antibiotic-resistant.

Cat’s claw lowers strep without issue, making it the ultimate UTI-alleviating herb and a fundamental tool of our time. Strep is also the true cause of many other symptoms and conditions, including cystic acne, bacterial vaginosis, SIBO, sinus pain and congestion, otitis media, intestinal disorders, sore throats, styes, and more. Cat’s Claw is also a fantastic herb to knock down E.coli, C. difficile and other bacteria.

Brain & Liver Support

The glycosides, proanthocyanins and beta sitosterol found in cat’s claw exert a beneficial effect on memory, making it an excellent supplement for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive/memory disorders. It also assists the liver’s personalized immune system, giving it a chance to recoup its strength and restore itself for the next battle. It helps the liver stabilize it’s environment.

Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Cancer, & Anti-Tumor

Most cancers and tumors are caused by viruses such as EBV. Cat’s claw knocks down viruses while strengthening the immune system, making it a powerful support for cancer and tumors. It’s also a powerful anti-inflammatory.

Spiritual Lesson

People are constantly on the search for the Holy Grail of health. As every new trend hits we hope that this is the answer, the protection we’ve been waiting for, the discovery that will change our lives.

Meanwhile, a miracle medicinal—cat’s claw—sits on the shelf of the health food store, and we pass it by. Or we add it to our herbal tool kit and forget to use it. It comes from the tropical jungle, so you’d think its exotic origin would pique more interest. Yet it’s within reach now, attainable, and so we figure it’s too accessible to be the real thing. If we gave cat’s claw a real chance, we would see that it really is a magical healer.

Throughout life, we overlook similar saving graces. Cat’s claw teaches us to reevaluate them. Have you ever underestimated a person, resource, object, or opportunity, and then realized in hindsight that you’d passed up the gift of a lifetime? What’s out there right now that could help if you let it? Cat’s claw teaches us that sometimes what we seek is within reach. We just need to have the presence of mind to recognize those everyday miracles that have made their way to us, so we can seize them.


When choosing a Cat’s Claw make sure it’s not in an alcohol base. Alcohol cancels out the beneficial effects of the herb.

Take a bottle of cat’s claw tincture with you as part of your emergency kit when traveling. Over the course of your trip, when you can remember, take small doses of the tincture. It’s a wonderful tool to protect your immunity and guard against malaria and bacterial infections.

Regardless of what health issue you use cat’s claw to address, take it in the evening, when its healing properties work most efficiently.
