About Stephania Root

Han Fang Ji/Fang Ji has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese Medicine and has a wide range of beneficial properties. It has therapeutic benefits for several medical conditions. Stephania root is one of the main protocol herbs for Lyme disease as discussed in Healing Lyme by S. Buhner. Stephania contains various chemical compounds, including glycosides and volatile oils. In Japan, stephania is used as a pain reliever, and to treat inflammation and stiffness of the shoulders and back.

Stephania root (Fang Ji) is one of the main protocol herbs discussed by Buhner in Healing Lyme. Its properties from traditional Chinese medicine include bitter, acrid, cold, bladder, spleen, and kidney. Key functions of the root include inducing diuresis to alleviate edema and expelling wind to alleviate pain.

Modern studies have shown that stephania root contains Tetrandrine, a bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid. This is the alkaloid that gives stephania root its potency, as Tetrandrine:

• is immunosuppressive, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-amoeba
• has a protective effect on myocardium (it can help the cardiovascular system by increasing blood flow, expanding coronary vessels, and lower blood pressure)
• inhibits platelet aggregation, promote fibrinolysis, and inhibit thrombin-induced blood coagulation
• can prvent experimental silicosis
• can significantly increase urine production
