July 5, 2012, around Kingman AZ. A friend was telling me a bit about these Chaparral bushes that grow wild in these parts of northwestern Arizona. When out in the desert I pulled a bit of branch with leaves. Immediately I could sense this herb is a very potent anti-bacterial, anti-parasite herb, just from the smell of it. Native American Indians used this as basically a 'cure all', their view that this herb cured a lot of various ailments and disease. Anyway, do your reseach everyone. There are some reported side effects such as liver complications, kidney damage. Of course I don't think that would happen to everyone using this herb. When you're dealing with any blood cleansing herb, there's the possibility of overwhelming the liver or kidneys with a rush of toxins released through the bloodstream that have to be dealt with in the liver or kidneys. It's most likely the toxins that are the concern, not the herb. I would certainly be taking milk thistle, something that would stengthen and help out the liver at a time when taking blood purifiers. Anyway, this video footage is mostly scenic, the area of the canyon I was hiking through in the afternoon, a bit outside of Kingman Arizona, Mohave Desert.
