“10 Health Benefits of Tawa Tawa Tea”

“Tawa Tawa Tea works great for infections, anxiety, diarrhea, asthma, Dengue Fever and much more.”

Tawa Tawa Tea Plant

Tawa Tawa Tea Plant

Where it Grows – Tawa Tawa tea (Euphorbia hirta) or “The Asthma Plant” grows all over India, Asia, Japan, Australia, Africa and in other parts of the world including the US.

Other names for the plant are pill bearing spurge, garden spurge, hairy spurge, koko kahiki in Hawaii, and baridhudi in Hindi. It loves growing in open areas with lots of grass and even along side roads… and it’s easy to grow.

Parts Used – The leaves and stems are most commonly used for tea… but for certain applications, even the roots are used.

Lowers Blood Pressure – Tawa Tawa Tea lowers blood pressure by being an anti-diuretic agent… containing an angiotensin enzyme that decreases urine output.

Anti-diuretic – Tawa Tawa Tea is great for those who suffer from drinking too much coffee and becoming too dehydrated or drinking too much alcohol. This tea decreases urine output thus helping to prevent dehydration. It contains tannins and other compounds that reabsorb electrolytes and water into the system.

Antibacterial, Anti-fungal, and Ameba Agent – Tawa Tawa Tea is a good antibacterial, anti-ameba, and anti-fungal agent that inhibits the growth of these infections… plus the tea can be used externally for treating athletes foot. It’s recommended for internal use to boil up to 50 grams of the fresh leaves in 4 cups water for 3 or 4 minutes, then drinking 3 to 5 cups a day.

GI Tract – Tawa Tawa Tea calms and soothes the GI tract and puts an end to diarrhea. For diarrhea use, one teaspoon of the dried leaves steeped in one cup of water for 5 to 10 minutes and drink 2 or 3 cups a day.

Relaxing Agent – Tawa Tawa Tea also helps to sooth away anxiety and stress. For stress boil up to 50 grams of the fresh leaves in 4 cups water for 3 or 4 minutes, then drinking 3 to 5 cups a day.

Increases Platelet Production –  Tawa Tawa Tea boosts platelet production. A study with rabbits at San Pedro College in the Philippines showed a 194% increase in platelet production. Steep 1 teaspoon of dried leaves in one cup of hot water for 10 minutes and drink 2 to 3 times a day. More Studies to be done on Tawa Tawa and increasing Platelets.

Dengue Fever – Tawa Tawa Tea can boost platelet production which is important for treating Dengue Fever. But it should not be used for more than 24 hours or up to 2 or 3 days in the beginning stages of Dengue Fever.

Asthma and Bronchitis – Tawa Tawa Tea works well for asthma and bronchitis as a bronchodilator… thus making it easier to breathe.

Skin Problems – The fresh sap of the plant can be applied externally for treating wounds, boils, warts, fungi, and rashes… it will turn dark blue when applied. Plus a dried powder of the leaves can also be used for open wounds.

Oral Ulcers – Tawa Tawa Tea used as a gargle heals oral ulcers… because it kills bacteria.

Use – Tawa Tawa Tea should only be used for short periods of time. Sometimes only 24 hours, at other times 5 or 6 days, it’s very powerful and must be used with care. Take 2 teaspoons of the fresh or dried herb and place it in a cup of boiling water and let steep for 15 minutes and drink 3 to 5 times a day.

Short Term Use Only – Tawa Tawa works wonders when used in moderation but it should not be used for more than 7 to 10 days period.

Forms – Tawa Tawa can be found as a fresh herb in your yard, teas, capsules, and powders.

Finding – If you google “Buy Tawa Tawa Tea” or “Buy Tawa Tawa Capsules” lots of places to buy Tawa Tawa Tea on-line will be found. And you can also find the tea and capsules on Amazon. Or you can ask for Tawa Tawa Tea at your local health food store. – All herbs, supplements, and medications should only be used for 7 to 10 days… they all put a burden on our liver and kidneys.

***Side Effects – All herbs, supplements, and medications should only be used for 7 to 10 days… they all put a burden on our liver and kidneys. Then take a 7 day break and if needed repeat. And as always those who are pregnant, nursing, or small children should not use Tawa Tawa.

        Sending Light, Love, and Healing Prayers Your Way.

        Liver Cirrhosis and Other Liver Challenges

        ***Liver Cirrhosis and Other Liver Challenges

        I have a friend Letha from California who had stage 4 liver disease and she was told by doctors that there was nothing they could do for her. So I took her to see my Traditional Chinese Doctor in NY and now Letha is totally healthy… Just passing this along.— Dr. Haider

        Also, the Whole Foods Plant Based Diet – this is vital and eating organic is absolutely important.

        And the green juices are very healing for the liver.

        We have over 30 chemicals in every fruit and veggie now. Take for instance the average potato – it contains 6 cancer causing agents, 12 hormone-disrupting agents, and 12 other disease causing agents… not good.

        Read the diet and find out how you can eat organic for less than what it costs for regular food in the market.

        And serrapeptase a powerful supplement can also help to get rid of kidney scar tissue. – See link – Take as directed on the bottle – take one bottle 2 or 3 times a year.


        ***Whole Foods Plant Based Diet and Lifestyle

        This diet must be followed exactly – OK


        ***Also drinking 5 or 6 glasses Daily of Green Juices is Vital for your recovery – All Organic – OK – See Diet

        Listen to your body – people have forgotten how to do this – most people just want doctors to tell them what to do – it doesn’t work that way.

        ***Chinese Medicine

        I also recommend going to See Dr. Frank my Chinese Doctors in NY

        He is great – he is at the Lin Sister Herb Shop at 4 Bowery Street

        His phone number is

        212) 962-5417 or (212) 962-0447 — call and see when he will be in and go see him in person – ask a lot of questions he does not speak a lot of English.

        ***Also from a spiritual point of view I recommend the following

        ***Name of God

        Saying a personal name of God over and over again thousands of times each day – silently

        Something like Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, or something else – something other than just the word God.

        The name of God is powerful.— all will be well.

        This needs to be said for at least 6 months – OK

        Sending Light Love, and Healing Prayers to Both of You

        Remember I only recommend – I am not a medical doctor – I am a Master Herbalist

        Also if you have a chance go see Dr. Nemeh in Cleveland – he is amazing – he prays for people and they get better – He as even in the Dr. OZ show – Powerful

        Dr. Nemeh

        Go see Dr Nemeh in person

        Dr Nemeh prays for people and they have miraculous healing’s




        Or you can contact Dana Beagle who works with Dr. Nemeh – See her email address – Dmbeagle@aol.com

        is the Link for Dr. Nemeh – he is amazing – prays for you in person and people are healed.

        He is in Cleveland

        And he was even on the Dr. Oz show – powerful

        See where he will be and have him pray and touch you.—

        All of this he does for a nominal charge – just enough to cover his expenses. — If I remember right his group healing on Sunday is $95 and office visits where he spends an hour or two with you is $300

        All will be well.


        My name is Dana Beagle. I came across your comments about Dr. Nemeh, who practices in the Cleveland area. My husband and I first met Dr and Kathy Nemeh two years ago at a healing service in the Detroit area. We have attended many services since then, as well as made several visits to his medical office. Each time, my husband’s healing has progressed. Truly miraculous…


        I also recommend practicing QiGong for creating vital energy See link to article and video below


        And more thing – In Chinese Medicine Fear is directly related to disease – Faith Overcomes Fear – Let Go of All Fear and Believe

        I also recommend that you listen to this recording by my friend Eldon Taylor for 60 nights all nigh along – with a pillow speaker about getting rid of fear – this is very important – You can download it or buy the CD – It’s Powerful!!!

    Hi doc, is it okay for my 1yo son to drink tawa tawa, based on his CBC he has low platelet. Have you heard about Usana? they have products called Usanimals for kids.
    Kook forward for your swift response.. thanks and Godbless

    • Hi-A,

      The only thing I recommend for children is good organic food.

      And I have heard of Usana – but I still would not recommend it for children.

      But you will have to decide – if this is life threatening then why not try it… if it’s not life threatening then why put your child at risk.

      I will be praying for your child.

      Many Blessings My Friend

      Dr. Haider

    Hi Doc,
    Would like to ask the side effects of using tawa tawa for long period, I believed in its good effect because last May 2016 the creatinine of my blood started to go up. I’ve done all the test except for the kidney biopsy. Then on September of 2016 the hemoglobin of my blood go down and I feel weak. My Neprologist ask me to use injectable med and vitamins to increase the hemoglobun. But I do not want to use those because those same medicines were use by my father who died due to kidney problem. And those are very expensive medicine (considering that you are a residing in the Philippines). Someone told me about tawa tawa and I tried it, to my surprise my hemoglobin increase and I no longer feel weak.

    At present, the creatinine in my blood is still high (229.84 umo/L or 2.6 mg/dL) which means my kidney is still not in good shape. I no longer eat red meat (even pork) and doing a healthy life style. Because of this kidney concern I am worried also of my homoglobin that is why I am continuously drinking tawatawa since last October 2016. Last night I heard from from radio in our local news that there is a side effect of tawa tawa if you consume it for longer period of time (according to scientist) but did not specify the side effect and scientist name. I am concerned that something in my body will be affected if I continuously use it.

    I hope you could enlighten me on this.

    • Hi- J

      As I have said thousands of times all herbs. Supplements, and medications should only be used for 7 to 10 days after that they will put a burden on our liver and kidneys… do not use it any more … Many Blessings My Friend.., Its only for very short term use… Dr Haider

      Heal with organic food long term

  11. Maria Elena Megu says:

    Hi doc can I ask why children should not take it I have a daughter of 5 pls reply..thanks.

    • Hi- M

      It is a super strong herb and like super strong medications can cause kidney and liver problems– Many Blessings My Friend- Dr Haider

      But you can use it – but remember it’s not something I recommend for small children
