Hu Zhang is typically used in traditional Chinese medicine for conditions such as arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, and liver disorders. However, it has gained attention in recent years for its potential use in managing Lyme disease.

Some individuals use Hu Zhang as part of their treatment regimen for Lyme disease due to its purported antimicrobial properties. Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted through the bite of infected ticks. While antibiotics are the primary treatment for Lyme disease, some people may explore herbal remedies like Hu Zhang as adjunctive or alternative therapies.
