    Desmodium.A (Desmodium adscendens)
    A Powerful and Safe Lung and Liver Support
    Desmodium adscendens is another wondrous rainforest herb which has been traditionally used by native peoples for a wide variety of conditions including: hepatitis, protection of liver from cirrhosis, muscle, tendon, and spinal pain, rheumatism, asthma (has bronchial-dilating qualities), allergic symptoms and eczema.

    Desmodium adscendens (or adscendens) is a vine, which grows wild in the Amazon rainforest of Peru and other South American countries and on the West Coast of Africa as well. It is believed to have been used for thousands of years by peoples native to the areas where it grows for a variety of health issues, including the following: asthma, bronchitis, jaundice, hepatitis, muscle cramps and backache. In Peru it is called Amor Seco or Pega Pega or any of a half dozen other names; in Belize it is know as “Strong Back” herb. It is an herbacious, perennial plant which grows up the trunks of trees. The leaves and stems are the medicinal parts. The therapeutic phytochemicals in Desmodium a. include alkaloids of the family of indolic alkaloids. The plant contains 4 mg/kg of alkaloids expressed in tryptamine. Fatty acids are present in a concentration of up to 3%, which is relatively rich in unsaturated acids.

    Research Findings
    Desmodium a. has been studied in France, England, Canada and Ghana (one of its countries of origin) including bronchial dilation, relaxation of smooth muscles, anti-histamine effects, and its ability to help normalize elevated liver enzyme levels.

    Effects on the Lungs
    These studies have shown an inhibition of the contraction generated by histamine on the smooth muscles of guinea pigs. Tests have targeted the ileum and the bronchial muscles, and it has been shown that the relaxation effect on the bronchials is very rapid (within a minute or two). These studies confirm the traditional usage for asthma, so well known that in Ghana the first line of treatment for patients in an acute asthma attack is the use of Desmodium a.

    Other effects on the lungs include helping to clear the sinuses, clearing congested nasal passages rapidly, helping to stop a lingering cough after the flu and even helping to clear up snoring.

    • Congestive Heart Failure (Coughing)
    • Chronic Cough
    • Nasal Drip
    • Asthma
    • Bronchial Spasms

    Dr. Cherkesian, a licensed acupuncturist and naturopathic doctor who practices in Boca Raton, Florida has found remarkable improvement in his patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) who were coughing a great deal because of the inability of their heart to clear their lungs, despite their taking different pharmaceutical lung-clearing drugs.

    Effects on the Liver
    The nutritional support provided for people with jaundice and different kinds of hepatitis with Desmodium a. is well established in West Africa. Medical doctors have documented the gradual normalization of elevated liver enzyme levels over a period of months. Improvements in liver enzyme levels are noted even within a week. This effect takes place because of the indolic alkaloids present in the plant. There are no anti-viral properties against the hepatitis virus in Desmodium a., as there are in Phyllanthus niruri or "Break-Stone" herb). The normalization of elevated liver enzymes—including cases of chronic hepatitis C—is facilitated entirely by the nutrients in the herb which support liver repair.

    Whole World Botanicals Social Mission

    WWB Gives an Appreciated Gift of Notebooks and Pencils
    In 2004, WWB distributed 1000 notebooks and 2000 pencils to the settlements along the Curaray River for the children to use in school. When they returned 5 years later, they were still talking about it!

    WWB Meets with Leaders in Communities of Camu-Camu Collectors
    Viana Muller, co-founder of Whole World Botanicals, visiting the Apu (head man) of the settlement to find out what kind of help their settlement needs the most.

    WWB Supports & Promotes Bio-energetic Agriculture
    Whole World Botanicals’ herbs are bioenergetically grown and harested. Maca roots, for example, are sown at the full moon and leafy plants are sown with the new moon. In order for medicinal parts to have maximum strength, plants are harvested at the full moon. These practices of native people all over the world are honored by WWB.

    A Hands on Approach - WWB works directly with native people
    In the high Andes, Dr. Viana Muller helps bring in the maca harvest. Viana consults with an apu (local leader of a camu-camu collecting community) about challenges of life in the northeastern Peruvian rainforest. Outside commercial interests have clear-cut part of their forest and over fished their rivers, degrading their environment and impoverishing local river dwellers.

    Sunroom (Greenhouse) Solar Energy Project
    Men from 5 maca-growing communities construct a narrow room with glass walls and ceiling to collect the passive solar energy from the brilliant high altitude sun. During the dry season the daytime temperature rises to 70°F and drops to below freezing at night. The heat collected in the sun space penetrates the 12" thick adobe walls slowly, reaching the inside of the house during the coldest hours of the night. This WWB Project was supervised by Dr. Richard Kpomp, Co-founder of the Maine Solar Energy Association.

    Solar Cooker Project
    The men are just as fascinated as the women in exploring for the first time how well and quickly a solar oven works to cook their food in their high Andean home, with abundant sunshine. Whole World Botanicals collaborates with their organic farming and wildcrafting partners in the rainforest and the Andes to support not only green farming but also green living. Maca growers live and farm their organic maca crops at 14,000 feet above sea level which is above the tree line. People living there suffer from the cold because they have no heating fuel. They cook their food by burning animal dung which produces an acrid, smoky fire and blackens their lungs. Two years go, the Company initiated a pilot solar energy project with maca-growing communities to demonstrate solar cookers and provided a workshop on building a solar space to heat their homes. The excitement that was generated by this project was tremendous to obtain solar cookers and provide a home solar space. As a next step, WWB plans to set up its own non-profit organization in order to accept help from its customers and others in fully implementing their environmental and social justice mission.

    WWB - Practicing Fair Trade Since 1996
    Whole World Botanicals has partnered for more than a decade with the Quechua-speaking communities who grow their organic maca roots in the high Peruvian Andes. WWB pays a floor price, which is above market price, for the maca roots. This allows the peasant producers with only a small land base to purchase basic necessities such as food which cannot be locally grown, clothing, transportation, school materials for their children and to live with dignity. Paying by a Fair Trade price has also permitted enough savings for a land-poor maca-growing community to build a low-heat solar dryer for drying the maca roots with technical assistance and an interest-free loan provided by the WWB.

    Traditionally, the freshly harvested maca roots have been allowed to dry for six to eight weeks in the open air on the ground. With the disruptive global climate changes, the dry season, which permits this type of drying, is no longer totally dry. By drying the roots in an open structure with a plastic roof, the maca roots can be kept free of the rain while continuing to sun-dry in the traditional way. Recent scientific research has confirmed the great superiority of traditional slow sun-drying of maca roots for preserving their hormone-balancing properties to the quick drying in electrical dryers used today in most commercial maca production. Paying Fair Trade prices has also enabled maca-growing communities with a large land base to make capital investments.

    Preserving The Amazon Rainforest
    WWB Co-founder, Elena Rojas-Martinez, admires an ancient old-growth forest tree in the Reserve. In 2007 the Peruvian government granted WWB a Concesión para Conservación, a Forest Reserve of more than 10,000 acres of virgin old-growth rainforest near the National Park Pacaya-Samiria. It is their responsibility to protect the trees in this territory from the human predators and to work with the two native populations whose own traditional lands border this forest area to sustainably collect the renewable small medicinal plants, fruits and nuts in the protectorate.

    The Founders

Dr. Viana Muller, co-founder of Whole World Botanicals, with maca growers, taking a rest break during the maca root harvest. Viana Muller, PhD, is co-founder and President of Whole World Botanicals. She wishes to provide highly beneficial natural health products to consumers while helping the producing communities.

    "By founding Whole World Botanicals in 1995, I discovered a way to join forces with native people to provide a market for their medicinal herbs and to make them partners in our company's venture by returning to them a percentage of profit," states Dr. Muller.

    "The trail that led me to studying the maca root began in 1989 during an anthropological field research trip to the jungles of Peru," the anthropologist explains. "Then I came across Cat's Claw which at that time was almost totally unknown in the USA. From there I became involved in looking for other highly effective Peruvian medicinal herbs.

    "In 1994, I came upon maca and spent the next two years researching its botany, history of use, and how it's used today by native peoples and medical doctors practicing in Peru.

    "The farmers who produce maca are sheep, llama and cattle herders living under very harsh conditions in communities high in the Andes that have existed for centuries. In order to survive they need to partially integrate economically and socially into Peruvian society, but they still live on communal land that is distributed to households by the communal council. Decisions about what to grow and how to use the land are made by the council. They still speak Quechua, their ancestral language, and maintain many traditions such as the worship of Pachamama, Mother Earth."

    Elena Rojas-Martinez CMP (Certified Midwife Practitioner)
    Growing up in an ancient, prehistorically famous town called Nasca, in Peru, I had the good fortune of being born into a family who knew the local herbs from our coastal area of Peru very well. Also, my family was always in contact with people from the highlands who brought us herbs from the Andes and from the rainforest, for these two regions have been connected since prehistoric times. I was always attracted to all of this knowledge. It seemed so mysterious and powerful to me – the results of these medicinal plants were astonishing!

    My grandmother on my father's side was part Indian and part African, a tall, proud woman who was a bonesetter, who set people's broken bones and who put dislocated bones back in place, using her hands, and then wrapped the traumatized area with crushed fresh herbs, tied in place with a piece of cloth.

    She was also a healer of children by means of laying on of hands. One of my earliest memories was watching the mothers lined up outside of our house with their sick babies and children, waiting for Mama Elena's miraculous touch.

    My mother was an Indian woman from the Department of Ayacucho in the Peruvian Andes whose first language was Quechua, the original Peruvian language. From the time I was a small child, both my Mama Elena and my mother would take me with them when they went on their herbal expeditions. Near Nasca the best herbs were found near the small rivers and at the "ojos" (small holes) opening to the ancient underground water canals built by the people of the Nasca civilization, which flourished about 800 years before the Incas. In these areas there was a profusion of wild plants, many edible, including tiny wild tomatoes, tiny wild squash of many varieties, and small wild beans and a plant similar to the asparagus, in minature size. Also growing there were a variety of medicinal plants, herbs used to relieve stomach pain, to stop coughs, to calm the nerves, herbs for eye infections and anti-inflammatory herbs.

    These early experiences influenced me to become a midwife and eventually led to my deep desire to found an herbal company which would spread the knowledge and make available these powerful and sacred Peruvian herbs to people all over the world.
