The root of Astragalus – also known as Huang Qi – has been used in Chinese medicine for hundreds of years to prevent infection and for those with impaired immunity. In Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, it is seen as a strengthening herb that protects most organs in the body. It has traditionally been used to treat bacterial and viral infections, chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, peptic ulcers, congestive heart failure, and nephritis.

Action: Antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, hypotensive, immune stimulant, rejuvenating tonic for the heart, liver, kidneys and adrenal glands.

Cardiac conditions: Astragalus been used as a cardiac tonic, strength- ening the heart and improving conditions such as angina and congestive heart failure. Its potent antioxidant effect suggests that it could be used to improve memory and fatigue and to reduce inflammation.

Immunity: This plant is often used during cancer treatments or after chemotherapy to help support immune function by enhancing natural killer cells that help to destroy cancer cells. There is some evidence to suggest that it can help prolong survival and reduce adverse reactions from some of the toxicity of anticancer drugs.

Astragalus can be taken as a preventative measure during tick season – normally between May and September – by people who work in high- risk areas where deer or ticks are found. The herb is used to boost the person’s immune system, preventing the Lyme bacteria from taking a hold in the body in Stages 1 and 2 (see chapter 1). Astragalus can be of benefit in early Lyme disease, but it will make symptoms worse in late Lyme disease. As an antiviral it has been shown to inhibit Coxsackie virus, linked to myocarditis and cardiomyopathy
