Astragalus, also known as huang qi in the Chinese traditional medicine, is one of them most important “Qi tonifying” adaptogenic herbs. In the Western herbal medicine, Astragalus is used primarily for restoring and strengthening the immune response, enhancing cardiovascular function and increasing vitality. According to clinical trials, it is indicated for impaired immunity, viral infections including the common cold and cervical erosion associated with Herpes simplex and as an adjunct for cancer treatment. I have found it to work great for abnormal cervical cell changes and positive PAP test (HPV infection) in combination with Echinacea and other immune enhancing herbs.
