After experiencing complete healing from high blood pressure and angina after chewing coca leaves in Cuzco, Peru for several weeks I decided to research this remarkable cure. I found that in the 19th Century, physicians all across the Western world understand the value of Coca Leaf and used it in literally dozens of treatments and cures. Sorry to 'talk my book' but I did put all of the 19t ... Show Full Comment

I've been using coca tea for several months now as an alternate to coffee. I will never switch back. I first (a few years ago) used the coca leaf in the Andes for altitude sickness, energy boost, and stomach issues, both chewing and drinking methods..the coca leaf helped all. I would highly recommend trying the tea as a coffee substitute to anyone. Also, it is truly sad that a fantastic all ... Show Full Comment

Hopefully WebMD will also read this. I am a 50 year old caucausian male, 5'6" 200lbs, I jog weekly, a professional mining technologist. I suffered a signficant concussion 5 years ago. I felt as if I was stoned for two months afterwards. I now suffer neck pain and grogginess that nothing seems to fix. I chew 4 tea bags of coca mate 3 to 4 times a day with Alkaselter 250 mg and Tums 300 mg ... Show Full Comment

I'm reviewing this treatment because I feel that the WebMD article is flawed in some aspects. Most mate de coca that is exported from South America is de-cocanized. Still, even if it wasn't the level of cocaine is so low that it's sort of strange to talk about the dangers of cocaine in an article about coca leaf. Coca leaf made me feel energized and balanced. I wasn't tired ... Show Full Comment
