STD - Sexually Transmitted Disease
or VD - Venereal Disease


Etiology - History


Axe, Dr, - - "Once European travelers brought the plant back to the colonies & elsewhere, it became a common medical treatment for infections, including syphilis & other sexually transmitted diseases. In fact, in the U.S. from about 1820-1910, it was registered in the official U.S. Pharmacopoeia as an effective treatment for syphilis."

Sarsaparilla - - The Spanish physician Nicolás Monardes described using sarsaparilla to treat syphilis in 1574. In 1812, Portuguese soldiers suffering from syphilis recovered faster if sarsaparilla was taken to treat the disease versus (toxic) mercury, the standard treatment at the time.4 Sarsaparilla has been used
by many cul
tures for other ailments as well, including skin disorders, arthritis, fever, digestive disorders, leprosy,
and c
ancer.1, 4 Late 15th century accounts of the&entification and first descriptions of American drugs include sarsaparilla.5 Sarsaparilla was used as a medicinal plant in American and European remedies in the 16th century as well.6 Sarsaparilla has been used for treating syphilis & other sexually transmitted diseases throughout the world & was documented as an adjuvant for leprosy treatment in 1959.7 S.China (Ba Qia or Jin Gang Teng) was included in the 2010 Chinese Pharmacopoeia.8 ...(There has been indication of possible use) against Candida albicans.12, 35 Butanol extracts of S. china showed activity against HIV in vitro.36 ...In castrated mice with induced benign prostatic hyperplasia, extracts from S. china reduced dihydrotestosterone levels and histopathological examination reveals possible protective effect against prostate enlargement.8

Sarsaparilla - - Smilax ornata is used as the basis for a soft drink frequently called sarsaparilla. It is also a primary ingredient in old fashioned-style root beer,[10] in conjunction with sassafras,[11] which was more widely available prior to studies of its potential health risks.[12]...Smilax ornata was considered by Native Americans to have medicinal properties, & was a popular European treatment for syphilis when it was introduced from the New World.[13] From 1820-1910, it was registered in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia as a treatment for syphilis.  Also referenced is:

Syphilis - - 10/22/2018 "Many men in his new expeditionary party contracted a strange disease never seen before, syphilis, from the native women, which they introduced to Spain on their return home."

Alternative Medicine

Andrographis (Andrographis paniculata also known in China as Chuan xin lian, or green chiretta)  "Used throughout China & India for its apparent anti-parasitic & antimicrobial actions to treat syphilis, malaria & worms; & for swollen lymph glands with fever, abscesses & lung & sinus infections. 
It was used in many cultures to treat syphilis until antibiotic drugs became more available."
Apples (May racoon) - 
May apple was long used by Native Americans to treat venereal warts.
A few years ago, etoposide, a semi-synthetic derived from the plant, was approved
to treat testicular cancer. It's now being studied as a treatment for lung cancer. 
Down South, they are called raccoon apples. Dr. Duke has been 'rassling the raccoons' for them for years."

Bloodroot (root of Sanguinaria Canadensis flower) - -
"The molecular structure of Sanguinarinia’s active medicinal Sanguinarine or Pseudochelerythrine—is [C20H14No4]...
Bloodroot is also 'of value in syphilitic skin eruptions, &, as an ointment, has been employed, locally, in tinea [ringworm—a fungus infection of the skin]. The powder, made into a cataplasm with slippery-elm, has been used in domestic practice as a local dressing for frozen [cold] feet. An infusion, made in vinegar, has been found valuable in several cutaneous diseases, as eczema, ringworm, and warts.'(21)"
Plume poppies have sanguinarine, which prevents plaque, says Dr. James Duke.
(Which have similar medicinal properties of above flora.)

Sarsaparilla root - is what US army medics used to give to soldiers who had (VD) venereal disease per world war army booklets.
Sarsaparilla root - - A Smilax root from Mexico was introduced into European medicine in 1536, where it developed a strong following as a cure for syphilis & rheumatism.1 Since this time, the Smilax genus has had a long history of use for syphilis & other sexually-transmitted diseases throughout the world. With its reputation as a blood purifier, it was registered as an official herb in the U.S.  Pharmacopoeia as a syphilis treatment from 1820-1910. From the 1500s to present, sarsaparilla has been used as a blood purifier, general tonic & also has been used worldwide for gout, syphilis, gonorrhea, rheumatism, wounds, venereal disease, arthritis, fever, cough, scrofula, hypertension, digestive disorders, psoriasis, skin diseases, & cancer. 
Sarsaparilla contains the plant steroids sarsasapogenin, smilagenin, sitosterol, stigmasterol, & pollinastanol; & the saponins sarsasaponin, smilasaponin, sarsaparilloside, & sitosterol glucoside, among others.2 The majority of sarsaparilla’s pharmacological properties & actions have been attributed to these steroids & saponins. The saponins have been reported to facilitate the body’s absorption of other drugs & phytochemicals,2,3 which accounts for its history of use in herbal formulas as an agent for bioavailability & herbal enhancement. Saponins & plant steroids found in many species of plants (including sarsaparilla) can be synthesized into human steroids such as estrogen & testosterone.
Sarsparilla (Smilax sarsaparilla) - -
"Through its immune-enhancing properties, anti-spirochete actions, & ability to bind endotoxins & purify the bloodstream, sarsaparilla is a well-rounded, beneficial herb in the treatment & prevention of Lyme disease...A French physician Nicholas Monardes described, in 1574, the use of sarsaparilla to treat syphilis...
The Chinese also used sarsaparilla to treat syphilis, & through blood tests showed that sarsaparilla was effective in 90% of cases of acute syphilis & 50% of cases of chronic syphilis. (Murray MT. The Healing Power of Herbs: The Enlightened Personʼs guide to the Wonders of Medicinal Plants. 2nd ed. Rocklin, CA; Prima Publishing: 1995:7.) (Also used by USA army in times past to treat syphilis.)
Sarsaparilla - "Sarsaparilla root & sassafras root are different.  The plants they come from are even more so... Sarsaparilla (Similax) is a vine whereas sassafras is a tree. Mexican & Jamaican Sarsaparilla are of the same genus, however Indian is not. It's more of a shrub. Flavors are similar & all can be used in place of one another,
but there are subtle differences. I'm not sure which one I have on hand right now, but it has a bit of an aroma similar to vanilla with a bitter flavor similar to cinnamon without the heat. Varieties (again, not sure which ones) I've had in the past were not as strong on the vanilla aroma.  Sassafras is more of a slightly bitter & sweet flavor with an astringent/tingly/ numbing mouthfeel like yarrow but less pronounced." 7/2/2013
Sarsaparilla - 7/17/2013 @ - The Jamaican (aka Honduran) Sarsaparilla is the plant Smilax regelii, also seen as Smilax ornata.   The Mexican Sarsaparilla is Smilax aristolochiaefolia, a plant of the same genus & family as the Jamaican variety.  Indian Sarsaparilla, however, is from an unrelated plant: Hemidesmus indicus, also known as False Sarsaparilla. However, it is often used as a (less expensive) substitute for the other varieties, as it is widespread in India, & cheap to produce.

Proverbs 5 - 1Listen to me, my son! I know what I am saying; listen!
Watch yourself, lest you be indiscreet & betray some vital information.

For the lips of a prostitute
[a] are as sweet as honey, & smooth flattery is her stock-in-trade.

But afterwards only a bitter conscience is left to you,
[b] sharp as a double-edged sword.
5 She leads you down to death & hell.
6 For she does not know the path to life. She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t even realize where it leads.
7 Young men, listen to me, & never forget what I’m about to say: 8 Run from her! Don’t go near her house,

lest you fall to her temptation & lose your honor, & give the remainder of your life to the cruel & merciless;

lest strangers obtain your wealth, & you become a slave of foreigners.

Lest afterwards you groan in anguish & in shame when syphilis
[d] consumes your body,
12 and you say, “Oh, if only I had listened! If only I had not demanded my own way!
Oh, why wouldn’t I take advice? Why was I so stupid?
14 For now I must face public disgrace.”
15 Drink from your own well, my son, be faithful & true to your wife.
Why should you beget children with women of the street?

Why share your children with those outside your home?
18 Be happy, yes, rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 Let her breasts & tender embrace[e] satisfy you. Let her love alone fill you with delight.
Why delight yourself with prostitutes, embracing what isn’t yours?

For God is closely watching you, & he weighs carefully everything you do.
22 The wicked man is doomed by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him.
23 He shall die because he will not listen to the truth; he has let himself be led away into incredible folly.

Napoleon was 1 of the so called 'Enlightened Monarchs.'   Napoleon suffered from syphilis & probably died due to consumption of arsenic which was used for treatment for syphilis during that time. Sexually transmitted diseases are rampant today & carry a physical penalty...If you keep doing something (that contradicts God's scriptural parameters) that gives rights to demons...Doors that were openings for demon powers to bring sickness & other areas of darkness must be closed.  Submission is a choice.  Only you can make it. A deliverance minister can’t make it for you; your spouse or parents can’t do it for you; it is a conscious choice that only you can make...Even after confession, some want to 'feel' guilty because of their sin. Forgiveness is what God does & it is based upon our confession (to God), not what we feel like. Feel forgiven because you are forgiven! Receiving God’s forgiveness is a done deal. Don’t keep bringing up your past that is forgiven, cleansed. It gives advantage to demons...So far as the east is from the west He has removed our sin from us. If He forgets it, you forget it. Condemnation is not God’s way. Forgiven? Forget it."
Having repented to God, be reminded that receiving the church's eucharist sacraments of bread & wine is our spiritual medicine.

The human papilloma-virus vaccine (HPV) Gardasil (being encouraged as a mandatory vaccination) is being questioned by the New England Journal of Medicine.  The drug company Merk has NOT demonstrated vaccine's (1) effectiveness against STD (sexually transmitted disease), (2) protection duration or (3) future adverse effects.  5/10/2007
(Even when a vaccination is mandatory, usually parent has ability to opt out on behalf of his/her child.  Just be careful that you do NOT sign your child up for automatic or free school vaccinations.  Never relinquish parental rights.  Always opt for pre-notification of all medical & ethical school happenings.)
5/24/2007 18 pregnant women who received the vaccine experienced complications (16 miscarriages + fetal abnormalities).  3 women who received the vaccine died.  2 side effects have been seizures to Gullian-Barre Syndrome in which immune system attacks nerves & induces paralysis.
