Today tell you about Tsinhonu. No, tsinhona – it’s not a curse and not a newfangled name Puerto Rican prostitutes. Tsinhona – only the second title of the cinchona tree.
All we know about what is malaria. Nasty, I must say, the disease (
Briefly, it spreads malaria-carrying mosquitoes, or to be more precise, the transfer of Plasmodium falciparum using mosquito.
By the way, since I started talking about the malarial mosquitoes, I can say this: some people are still confused Anopheles mosquitoes (which, for the most part and have not seen something never) mosquitoes – crane flies. However, some think that a mosquito bite – crane flies causes instant paralysis, respiratory failure, malaria, death and all the bone fracture. And all this at the same time. It is not! I will not develop this theme, because now I do not write about the mosquitos. Interesting – read, I gave links.
Now we are talking about Hinn tree and malaria.
So what are the symptoms?
Typically, here they are: fever, chills, arthralgia (joint pain), vomiting, anemia, convulsions, and so on …
The modern pharmaceutical industry, of course, has developed a lot of drugs to combat the disease (quinine, doxycycline, chloroquine, etc.), but since we are survivalist, you must know about natural remedies to combat malaria – the bark of the cinchona tree.
Those who read Jules Verne, remember that the crust is made of powder, which is then added to the drink. You can also use a decoction of the bark.
But the broth – well, the powder is even better, but if you’ve seen when cinchona – anything? Most likely not. I have it too, only in the greenhouse watching
Once seen, it will be hard to forget, but generally looks like this tree:
Here, for example, its flowers:
Externally tree something similar to alder, but the cinchona tree leaves are shiny and the crown has a slightly pinkish hue.
Plants are best studied is not even on the drawings, and from the photos, so I recommend to look for more resources or satin classifier of plants, for example. Although the atlas I probably bent. Online they are not (qualitatively scanned at least), and at a cost they are quite expensive.
There is another option to Wikipedia, or you can read an article on the project NEMEZUND, which is called “cinchona”
That’s in general
P.S. I almost forgot! Some people have seen a sharp individual intolerance of drugs cinchona bark! Sad, but true! So, among other things, should first think about how to avoid being bitten, as complications from the drugs containing quinine, also quite serious, if not more – dangerous
