Psychotria ipecacuanha is a perennial, medicinal herb that grows in clusters in the understory of humid, shady

areas of the Atlantic Rain Forest of southeastern Brazil.

In large doses, Ipecacuanha root is emetic; in smaller doses, diaphoretic and expectorant, and in still smaller, stimulating to the stomach, intestines and liver, exciting appetite and facilitating digestion.
