Indication for Siberian Ginseng

Indication for Siberian Ginseng

Depression: Depression is, of course, affected by every aspect of our lives. Those suffering from mild to moderate depression can often be helped just by the increase in energy and the resilience towards stress. However, Siberian ginseng also seems to have a specific action against the condition itself.

Stress and associated symptoms: Similar to the other forms of ginseng, Siberian ginseng is used to treat a plethora of conditions. For instance, since Siberian ginseng contains substances that exert beneficial effects on the adrenals (small glands on top of the kidneys that secrete stress-fighting hormones) it effectively combats the symptoms of stress. These include insomnia, moodiness, and fatigue.

Chronic illnesses (such as cancer): The herb is often used as part of a recovery program from chronic illnesses such as cancer. The supplement increases energy stores and helps to relieve the stress of chemotherapy (or other invasive treatments). For these same reasons it is often given to athletes during training. Siberian ginseng is also very effective in the treatment of prolonged exhaustion and debility, resulting from overwork and long-term stress.

Mental functions: Mental acuity can also be improved by Siberian ginseng. Many people swear by the use of it during tests. Often times, stress is the cause for faulty memory, lack of focus, and other common complaints. It’s a cycle in which the symptoms produce more stress, which produces more symptoms. Siberian ginseng seems to be able to defuse this by relieving tension and allowing the mind to focus.

Anorexia nervosa: Increasing energy gradually is important to those struggling with anorexia nervosa. Although, the other forms of ginseng are too strong for this situation, Siberian ginseng seems to work gently and effectively to improve the overall condition of patients. This makes recovery more likely.

Resisting Illnesses: The herb also stimulates immune resistance and is often used as a preventative during flu and cold season. As a general tonic, Siberian ginseng helps to prevent infection and maintain well being. Because of this immune boosting effect, Siberian ginseng is frequently included in nutritional support programs for people with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia.

Alzheimer’s disease: It may benefit people who are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease by increasing mental alertness. Research is still needed in this area but patients given Siberian ginseng seem to respond favorably.

PMS, Menopause, & Fertility: By slightly altering hormone levels and toning the uterus, Siberian ginseng may be effective in treating menstrual irregularities and symptoms of menopause. It also appears to be helpful in preventing female infertility. When alternated with Panax ginseng, it may even be an effective treatment in some cases of impotence.

Other conditions: Other conditions for which Siberian ginseng is occasionally recommended are arthrosclerosis, impaired kidney function, kidney pain, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, blood pressure disorders, symptoms of coronary atherosclerosis, symptoms of radiotherapy- and chemotherapy-induced leukopenia (decrease in white blood cells), and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
