    I would like to know the word for this plant in English. This herb or plant is a tradicional remedy in Mexico for TB. (Tuberculosis) I can not seem to find a link or thread for this. Thank you.
    : botany, nutrition

    Thank you all for such great information! I attended a seminar lead by a prominent Mexican Doctor where he discussed Tradicional Mexican medicine so as to inform our group of our need to understand these practices in conjuction with ocidental medinice. This is where I heard about this plant. I was certain he said TB. Perhaps I misunderstood. Thank you all so much once more.
