Chaparral General Information
Chaparral is native to the Southwestern United States, and is an herb derived from the common desert shrubs Larrea tridentata and Larrea divaricata. It is a strong-scented, olive green bush. This tall, thorny shrub is found in large numbers in the deserts bordering the US and Mexico, reaching six feet in height, the leaves have a nasty, shiny, smelly resin that keeps predators away. Sometimes planted ornamentally in dessert gardens, its yellow flowers give way to fuzzy white fruits resembling cotton balls. If you have ever seen the black sticky resin on railroad ties, you have seen a product of the Chaparral. The stems and leaves are covered with a sticky resin that screens leaves against the ultraviolet radiation, reduces water loss and poisons or repels most herbivores. For hundreds of years, Native American healers made a tea with the leaves and stems and used as a treatment for colds, flu, diarrhea, arthritis, cancer, venereal disease, tuberculosis, bowel cramps, and rheumatism. Twentieth century herbalists thought of this herb as an antibiotic and used it as a treatment for intestinal parasites. Chaparral can grow in depleted soil and survive for long periods of time without rainfall. This plant was one of the first to grow back after the 1962 nuclear bomb test at Yucca Flats. This plant was listed in the US Pharmacopoeia from 1842 to 1942.

Chaparral Uses & Scientific Evidence For
The principal ingredient in Chaparral is nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA); this is an anticancer agent and a potent antioxidant. More research still needs to be done. This herb also has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, expectorant, emetic and diuretic properties. Chaparral chelates (removes) heavy metals in the body and offers protection against the harmful effects of radiation, sun exposure, and the formation of tumors and cancer cells. It can be used topically for soothing the pain of rheumatism, and as a mouthwash it helps fight cavities. Chaparral can be used as a remedy for venereal disease and urinary infections. It also works well in treating acne and eczema. Externally it can be used for wounds and rashes. This herb is also purported to eliminate the residue of LSD from the bloodstream and it has even been used as tonic for hair growth, although more research still needs to be done. Chaparral contains lignans that are very similar to estrogen, giving it an effect on the skin similar to that of soy taken internally. Applied to the skin, Chaparral can have a remarkable healing effect on eczema, herpes, cold sores, psoriasis and contact dermatitis.

Chaparral Safety & Interaction Information
Symptoms of Chaparral toxicity include nausea, fever, fatigue or jaundice. Discontinue using immediately if you experience these symptoms. Pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease should not take this herb. If you are taking any medications (prescription or over-the-counter), it is best to consult with your physician before taking this herb for the treatment of your condition.

The American Herbal Products Association once banned Chaparral when it was thought the herb could have caused hepatitis. The ban was lifted because there was no evidence to confirm this. Its long-term use is not recommended and excessive use may result in stomach upset.
