Description and diagnostic features   

   It is a succulent tree.   


Part used     

 Fruit

    

Uses                

The powdered fruit is used as a food supplement. Fruit seed and pulp are ground together to make a very nutritious powder.  It has a remarkable effect of making people feel good about themselves. This is essential for overcoming autoimmune diseases of apparent self criticism that emanates from the gut. This critical voice of the Amafufunyana can be  healed with baobab fruit.  In the absence of the fruit the medium Edgar Case suggested a mixture of  three salts:  sodium tartrate, potassium tartrate,  and flowers of sulphur.

  

Warning
