I just came across your message and had to add my 2 cents, (my testimonial is on this site re Pau d'arco, ( just search Canadian Yodas messages), I firmly believe I would not be alive today if not for Pau d'arco ( and essiac), and unlike many people I did not do many other things ( mostly because I could not afford them).
Besides the two teas I fresh juiced, ate healthy concentrating on fresh veg and whole grains but also ate small amounts of fish, eggs and meat. I did cut out all refined Sugar and switched to stevia. I took basic supplements, C,E, a good multi vit/min, bromelane,garlic and milk thistle. Two good info sites are listed below.
