What parts of the cocolmeca plant are used?

Herbalists use the roots and the underground stems, otherwise known as the rhizomes (which are edible). Some species of cocolmeca are even found in American Root beer.

Generally Prepared:

Cocolmeca is usually prepared as capsules, tablets, teas, tinctures, tonics and as topical washes. One or two teaspoons of the herb may be mixed with 8 ounces of water as an infusion. 

Prepare cocolmeca bark as a tea using the following instructions:

Take a handful of the root pieces and boil them for approximately 20 minutes, using a half-gallon of water. Allow the tea to steep between 10 and 20 minutes. Drink 2-3 cups daily. You can reuse the steeped root two more times. The resulting infusion is very strong, allowing for the reuse of the roots more than once.
