Ethnomedical Uses:  Erva Jararaca or Jergon Sacha is one of the more unusual and interesting rainforest remedies coming from the Amazon today. Its "signature plant" status as a snakebite remedy is well known in South America and highly regarded. It is touted there as a natural remedy for HIV/AIDS, cancerous tumors, gastrointestinal problems, hernias (as a decoction applied topically), hand tremors, heart palpitations, and to enhance immune function. The plant is known to possess something called protease inhibitors which is the main ingredient needed to treat snake bites. This protease inhibitor, that is found in this herb, is known as a cure for viral infections and since HIV is a virus, then it stands to reason that the herb will indeed have an effect on the people who are infected with HIV and AIDS. The extract of the root can be prepared a number of different ways besides the combination with Cat's claw used for HIV. The herb is also prepared as a cure for other viral infections.
