VIDEO Costa Rica Natural Medicine from Jungle
I filmed this on site at Las Villas de San Buenas, Osa, Costa Rica while scouting out where to put our trails. Fran, one of my workers, who also grew up in San Buenaventura, was leading the way. While walking past some vegetation he took out his machete and taught me about cana agria (sour cane) and told me it is a great remedy for kidney problems. Every time we take a hike in the jungle he teaches me something new about a natural healing remedy (he taught me about ‘black stick’ for prostate health among others – put the sticks in boiling water, let sit for 10 minutes, then drink. I will go back out on a hike with him to find it again and I’ll make a video).
