Dong Quai is commonly used in conjunction with other herbs as a remedy for disorders of the menstrual cycle pain that accompanies menstruation and bleeding from the uterus.
Chinese herbalists recommend it for both males and females to treat cardiovascular disorders like high blood pressure or circulatory problems. Dong Quai has been known to increase activity of the central nervous system, which gives increased strength and energy and soothes headaches which can accompany problems with menstruation.
Dong Quai is beneficial to the reproductive organs and is used to treat endometriosis or internal bleeding or bruising. It can sometimes treat problems associated with menopause like hot flashes or vaginal dehydration. It is also used to purify the bloodstream of toxins, stimulate circulation, and is very beneficial to the blood in both men and women.
Dong Quai is very rich in iron and so it is used to treat or prevent anemia. Research indicates it is also effective in evening out blood sugar amounts and reducing blood pressure.
Dong Quai can also be used as a mind sedative as it soothes nerves and helps people relax. It can also be used to help the uterus during birth. Other uses of Dong Quai include treating insomnia, constipation, and migraines.
