Product Description

Prevent Immunosuppression Caused by Chemo Therapy

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) is used today in China for many purposes, some quite ancient and others very new. Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus), the Chinese medicine for lungs strengthens the lung qi and, because the lungs help create the Wei Qi, and can strengthen this type of Qi. It is a spleen qi tonic and used for lack of appetite, organ prolapse, fatigue, and wasting and thirsting syndrome (usually caused by diabetes or tuberculosis).

Chinese Medicine for Lungs

Wei qi is the protective energy that helps prevent illness caused by pernicious external influences. When the Wei Qi is deficient, people can get sick more easily, sweat too much or not enough, and develop sores that won’t come to a head. Also, by strengthening the Wei Qi, this herb reduces excessive sweating, menopausal sweating, and night sweats and promotes suppuration of boils and carbuncles.

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) enhances immune system function and helps prevent colds, influenza, bronchitis, mononucleosis, pneumonia, infection by the Coxsackie B virus (the primary cause of myocarditis), and other forms of external evil. It also helps prevent immunosuppression caused by chemotherapy and has tumor-inhibiting activity. In Chinese studies, astragalus combined with ligusticum fruit increased survival times in patients with breast and non-small-cell lung cancers.

More recently, this herb has been used to improve cardiac blood flow. Combined with Dan Shen (Salvia miltiorrhiza), dang gui, and corydalis tuber, astragalus is useful for treating angina and mild congestive heart failure. Regular use of the root has been shown to prevent kidney and liver damage caused by medications and viruses. Combine with hepatoprotective herbs such as milk thistle, Schisandra, and turmeric or nephroprotective (protects the kidney) herbs such as cordyceps, nettle, and S. miltiorrhiza.
