Medicinal

Considered to be a universal medicine by local people in the Philippines who give it the name 'makabuhai', which means 'to give life'


The plant is commonly prescribed as a decoction or in powder form in the treatment of fevers, stomach trouble, indigestion, and diarrhoea. It is the basis of a popular preparation, which is used as a cordial, a tonic, or an ingredient in cocktails

A preparation made with coconut oil is an effective cure for rheumatism and is also used in the treatment of flatulence in children

This preparation is made by chopping the stem into pieces 2 - 5cm long and placing them in a jar with coconut oil,. This jar is then left out in a sunny position to 'cook' and is then stored for 12 months until it is ready to use

The stem is antimalarial, parasiticide, tonic and vulnerary

It is taken internally in the treatment of fevers


Taken externally, a decoction of the stem is considered an effective cure if used as a wash for tropical ulcers, external parasites, and is also an excellent vulnerary for itches, ordinary and cancerous wounds
