Some yrs ago I was in Manaus and my friends saved my life (and cured my pneumonia) with a tea of "maçaranduba". In subsequent attempts to find the "bark of aranduba" I discover that the healing bark is rare and/or hard to get. Further, massaranduba seems a name that is used for a number of trees, one of which is a popular "exotic" hardwood (Manilkara Bidentata), others are used for wood pulp in mass quantities. You list Manilkara huberi. Any light you can shed on the species used medicinally? And its availability? (As a tree OR as a processed "herb" product) Thanks for your time!

I would like to know whether this is the same wood that is usually hung around the neck and is used by faith healers or witch doctors when somebody fall sick. It is said to protect the wearer from sickness.
I saw a wood here in my country which is said to have come from the Amazon interior. Please enlighten me. Thanks.
