Introduction to Teasel Root

Teasel Root is native to Japan and China. It is an erect and stout herb, with lots of compact white flowers, but the root is the interesting part for Chinese medicine. It is known to particularly affect the skeletal system, the liver and the urinary system.


What Teasel Root Is Used For

Teasel Root is used for all sorts of pains and disorders regarding the skeleton, for starters. It is used in traditional Chinese medicine to strengthen the bones, ligaments and tendons, as well as helping to relieve symptoms of joint and knees stiffness, and chronic lower back pain. It works by increasing the blood flow to the injured area to speed up recovery and help to remove soreness. It can also be used to stop any extreme uterine bleeding, either between or even during menstrual flows. It is said to help to calm and relax a restless fetus and stop (or reduce) bleeding during pregnancy. Teasel Root is also affiliated with the kidneys and liver. It can help to tonify the liver and kidneys and help to promote better blood circulation.


People might take teasel root for the following reasons:

    • broken bones
    • damage to ligaments or tendons
    • excessive stiffness in joints
    • excessive stiffness in knees
    • lower back pain
    • excessive menstrual bleeding
    • excessive bleeding between menstrual flows
    • bleeding during pregnancy
    • improve circulation

How Teasel Root Is Used

Teasel root is generally taken as an extract in capsule or pill form, or alternatively as an extract to make tea. Externally, teasel root is sometimes combined with others herbs (often dragon's blood and drynaria) to form a poultice for relieving pain and swelling.


Who Might Benefit From Teasel Root

Teasel root can be used to help speed up the recovery of anyone who has had an accident and suffered a broken bone, for example, or anyone who is suffering from joint stiffness (especially in the knees) and lumbago. Teasel root is also one of the herbs to be used for Lyme disease as listed in the book Healing Lyme Disease by Stephen Buhner. Those who are having problems with excessive bleeding during pregnancy may find teasel root to be helpful, but of course you should always consult your medical practitioner about such important matters.


Possible Side Effects of Teasel Root

There are no known side effects documented about taking Teasel Root, but of course if you do experience an adverse reaction when taking any herb you should stop immediately.
