English Name: (round-leaf) pyrola, asian wintergreen, Lu Han Cao

Chinese Name: 鹿衔草,鹿銜草

Common Uses  in Traditional Chinese Medicine: 

  • Lu Han Cao dispels wind-dampness and strengthens the tendons and bones to address bi zheng (painful obstruction syndrome) presenting as soreness, weakness, and coldness of the lower back and knees. This herb also treats bone spurs.
  • Lu Han Cao tonifies the kidney to help it grasp Qi (thereby strengthening the lung—think asthma with wheezing/difficulty on the intake breath). This action also nourishes the heart when, for example, deficient heart Qi leads to palpitations and anxiety.
  • Lu Han Cao stops bleeding; when combined with other stop-bleeding herbs, it treats such presentations as epistaxis (nosebleeds), hematemesis (vomiting blood), and abnormal/excessive uterine bleeding.
