Andrographis Paniculata (Chuan Xin Lian Fen) Powder
Andrographis paniculata is an erect annual herb extremely bitter in taste in all parts of the plant body. The plant is known in north-eastern India as Maha-tikta, literally "king of bitters". As an Ayurveda herb it is known as Kalmegh or Kalamegha, meaning "dark cloud". It is also known as Nila-Vembu in Tamil, meaning "neem of the ground ", since the plant, though being a small annual herb, has a similar strong bitter taste as that of the large Neem tree (Azadirachta indica). In Malaysia, it is known as Hempedu Bumi, which literally means 'bile of earth' since it is one of the most bitter plants that are used in traditional medicine.
It is prized for its anti-bacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, but is most commonly used for lesser issues such as the common cold, sinus infections, general inflammation, pain, and detoxification.
According to Stephen Buhner (author of the book "Healing Lyme"), Andrographis is perhaps the best primary herb to use in the treatment of Lyme Disease. It is anti-spirochetal, enhances immune function, protects heart muscle, is anti-inflammatory (helping with arthritic symptoms), crosses the blood/brain barrier where it is active both as an anti-spirochetal and calming agent; enhances liver function and protects the liver; helping clear infection from the body. Because Andrographis has shown significant protective effects against inflammation-mediated neurodegeneration in the brain, it is essential to use in Lyme Disease.
Specific indications: Borrelia spp. infection, with heart involvement, with arthritic inflammation, with low immune function, brain fog, confusion. Neuroborreliosis. Generally: any Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato infection.
Because of its bitterness, some few people have had upset stomach. A few people are allergic to Andrographis. This is WHY-- as with all herbal preparations - you must always start your dosing at very low levels and BUILD to your treatment dose. Botanical medicines are generally FAR safer than pharmaceutical drugs, but use caution and common sense when dosing.
Recommended Dosage: Start with a small dose (about 600 mg three times a day). If no side effects you can increase the dose. In traditional Chinese medicine 9-15 gram (1/3 to 1/2 an ounce) of the herb is used.
