Primary Functions
Harmonizing. Relieves liver tension and discharges surface heat.

Bupleurum is one of the most important herbs used in Chinese herbalism. It is a powerful, cold, detoxifying herb. It is not a tonic herb, but it is useful in the tonic system because of its ability to relieve Liver tension and digestive disturbances and because it is detoxifying and anti-microbial. Since it is not a tonic herb, it has the potential to have side effects if not used carefully. The primary side effect is excessive detoxification in too short a period of time. For this reason, Bupleurum should never be used without being combined either with White Peony or Scutellaria, both of which detoxify the blood and eliminate heat. They tend to prevent over-zealous detoxifying. The toxins will be released more or less unnoticed by the bowels and through perspiration and urination. Excessive intake of Bupleurum without the appropriate amount of Scutellaria or Peony sometimes causes a “toxic headache”, a common sign of detoxifying. Chinese herbalism does not generally condone detoxifying so rapidly as to cause a headache. Use more Peony or Scutellaria in your formula if you discharge toxins so rapidly that it causes discomfort. A tea of White Peony Root and Licorice Root can rapidly counteract the toxic discharge and its symptoms caused by Bupleurum. The toxins are not reabsorbed, they are simply rerouted out by the proper means.

Bupleurum is the primary herb in dozens of classical formulations which serve a wide variety of harmonizing and decongesting activities. For example, Bupleurum & Dragon Bone, a classical formula, is superb as a Shen stabilizing anti-stress formula. It is used extensively in Japan to reduce tension and anxiety. Bupleurum & Peony and Bupleurum and Tang Kuei Combination are the primary formulations for women who suffer from hormonal imbalances resulting in syndromes such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and menopausal distress. Bupleurum and Cyperus Combination is a powerful digestive regulating formula and Bupleurum & Rehmanniais a powerful detoxifying formula which is especially useful when there is blockage in the lymph glands. A formula known as Minor Bupleurum Combination is the most widely used formula in the Japanese Kampo system of herbalism. Kampo is the government certified Chinese herbal system used by millions of patients in the national health care system of Japan. Minor Bupleurum Combination is used in Kampo for a wide range of problems, including hepatitis B, the flu, liver cancer and more, all approved by the Japanese Health Ministry. A slightly modified version has been shown to block HIV replication and is therefore being tested in Japan for use by HIV infected individuals. Initial studies have proven very favorable (See the discussion of Scutellaria for more about this therapy). It is even more widely used by health conscious people of Japan to prevent flues, especially during the flu season and during recovery from the flu to speed up recovery and to prevent relapses.

Bupleurum has the ability, when combined with other herbs to clear stagnation virtually anywhere in the body. It can be used to relieve blocks, imbalances and tension that cause spasms, muscle tension, lumps, bleeding due to heat and menstrual irregularity. There are many such Bupleurum based formulations, that are vauluable while taking tonics, all of which regulate the body’s new abundance of energy allowing it to flow freely and in a balanced manner and for relieving blockages in the body and then discharging the toxins safely out of the system.

The essential oil in Bupleurum is responsible for its ability to relieve surface heat. Bupleurum formulas are extremely useful at the early stages of tonic use in helping to establish radiant health. As time goes by, these formulas become less and less necessary until eventually they only need to be used occasionally, if at all.

Primary Combinations
Combine with:

  1. Scutellaria to relieve the surface, dredge and soothe the Liver, purge heat, clear fever and detoxify the body
  2. White Peony Root to do the same thing as Scutellaria, but not as strongly. White Peony is usually used for chronic conditions and Scutellaria is used for acute conditions with raging fire. Peony moderates the release of heat and pent-up tension that may result from the detoxification.
  3. Pinellia to relieve Lung congestion

Varieties and Grading
Larger Bupleurum is usually considered to be stronger.

Use under the care of an herbalist. May cause rapid detoxification with symptoms such as headache and anger. In cases of severe toxicity and improperly balanced Bupleurum administration, skin sores can arise.

Alive & Well's philosophy is based on us as human beings taking care of our health as well as our pets and animals by consuming whole living foods and herbs, and through the use of natural and organic products, doing regular exercise, breathing fresh air, absorbing sunshine and drinking and bathing in good clean spring water, all in the way Yahweh intended us to when He created us and the universe.

On both riverbanks will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not dry up and their fruit will not fail. There will be a different kind of fruit each month because the water flows from the sanctuary so that this fruit will be edible and the leaves will have healing properties." Ezekiel 47:12 CJB. Disclaimer: The Western Medical Field believes that Yahweh, Yeshuah and the Ruach HaKodesh, the Word of Yahweh, food, herbs and frequencies have nothing to do with the health of the body. We believe that Yahweh, Yeshuah and the Ruach HaKodesh, the Word of Yahweh, food, herbs and frequencies all work together to create harmony and health in the human body the way Yahweh intended it to be when He created us and the universe. Since we work with Yahweh, Yeshuah and the Ruach HaKodesh, the Word of Yahweh, food, herbs and frequencies collectively, we certainly are not entering the Western Medical Field and are not practicing Western Medicine. We believe the Western Medical Field is founded on witchcraft and sorcery and therefore separate ourselves from them and will not recommend drugs or their practices and will not replace the prescriber of drugs or their practices.
