Mildred Nelson, Hoxsey’s chief nurse, later substituted chaparral for poke, which was in the original formula. We do not know whether she still includes zinc chloride and antimony trisulfide in her revised formula at her Hoxsey Clinic in Tijuana. We also do not know the proportions of each in- gredient in the total formula.
It is now known that pau d’arco contains the same active ingredient as in chaparral (nordihydro- guaiaretic acid, or KDGA) while lacking the harsh side effects chaparral sometimes has.
