Pansit-pansitan , a Herbal Medicine for Arthritis, Gout, Pimples,etc.

Pansit-pansitan (family: Piperaceae) is used as a herbal medicine for the treatment of: 
                     • Arthritis
                     • Gout
                     • Skin boils, abscesses, pimples
                     • Headache
                     • Abdominal pains
                     • kidney problems

Pansit-pansitan  is also known as Ulasiman-bato and tangon-tangon in the Philippines. Its English name is peperomia. Its leaves and stalk are edible. It can be harvested, washed and eaten as fresh salad. Taken as a salad, pansit-pansitan helps relive rheumatic pains and gout. An
infusion or decoction (boil 1 cup of leaves/stem in 2 cups of water) can

also be made and taken orally - 1 cup in the morning and another cup in the evening.

For the herbal treatment of disorders like abscesses, pimples and boils, pound the leaves and/or the stalks and make a poultice (boil in water for a minute or two then pounded) then applied directly to the afflicted area. Likewise a decoction can be used as a rinse to treat skin disorders.

For headaches, heat a couple of leaves in hot water, bruise the surface and apply on the forehead. The decoction of leaves and stalks is also good for abdominal pains and kidney problems. 

Always listen to your body's messages.  Do not ignore its complain. Herbal medicines are good at the start of symptoms.  If sysmptoms persist, however, see your doctor.

Be healthy and enjoy life!
