Pinzona coriacea
For gonorrhea a tisane is made of lyenn chasen, kod-a-vyelon (Desmodium incanum), pistach mawon (Desmodium barbatum), mayok chapel (Entada polystachya), ti patat (Ruellia tuberosa) and a small, immature soursop (Annona muricata). If you tire easily, "can’t climb the hill,’’ a piece of the stem is boiled and a tablespoon taken in a glass of water twice a day. A little piece is cut up and put in water to soak, then the water drunk for "anything that’s wrong with you.’’ lyenn chasen is also used for headache and high blood pressure.
