Tea-Leaf Flower- Hypertension Herbal Treatment


Anti hypertension Tea-leaf flower is a health-care product which can cure or prevent hypertension. But what is tea-leaf flower? It is an organism of the vegetable kingdom

Tea-Leaf Flower- Hypertension Herbal Treatment which has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for almost a thousand years. China is a country with many dialects. The plant we are now considering has quite a few dialect names. Tea- leaf flower is the literal, or semantic, translation of just one of these dialect names. The other dialect names would best be translated phonetically, for their literal translations would each carry some irrelevant significance. For example, a popular name is phonetically lobma, which is not suitable for literal translation. When in difficulty of mutual understanding, we may use its scientific name, which is Apocynum venetum.

Long History:

Hua Tuo

It is said that the Anti hypertension tea-leaf flower used for curing dizziness and lengthening the life span was handed down by the famous ancient surgeon and physician Hua Tuo (141~203), who lived and worked at the end of the Han Dynasty. He is known to have carried out a surgical operation on General Guan Yu without the benefit of any anaesthetic. General Guan endured the excruciating pain, playing chess with a friend at the same time, while the surgeon scraped off the arrow poison in the bone of his left arm. General Guan won great fame in the history of China for his ability to endure physical pain and became almost a legendary hero. What is to be regretted is that Hua Tuo was later killed by the tyrannical prime minister when he proposed to perform a surgical operation on the latter.Anyhow Chinese people learned a long time ago how to cure and prevent those diseases which we now know, from the symptoms described, were due to hypertension.

Unique Effect:

1.Anti hypertension Tea-leaf flower is a shrublike herb. Its tender leaves are generally plucked in July because at that time of the year the herb, or shrub, is under the greatest vaporizing influence and all the constituents that are beneficial to human health are rising into the top branches. Therefore, the tender leaves on the top branches have the highest medicinal value besides being very fragrant like flowers. The tender leaves plucked in July are processed in the same way as green tea, which means that they do not undergo any fermentation. The processed leaves are compact in form and deep green in color with enduring fragrance. The beverage made by steeping them in boiling water is aromatic and tasteful. It is a flavorful natural drink. It is a drink that has been proved in rigorous tests to be able to regulate and stabilize blood pressure.

2.This shrublike herb originated in what was called the Western Regions in the Han Dynasty, and that part of the Western Regions which produced it and is still producing it now in the wild state is a remote and isolated place in the present Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. It must be due to the favourable climate and special soil constituents there that the leaves plucked there in July are reputed to be the best for curing high blood pressure. What is particularly remarkable is that there is a large village there which is honored with the nickname of "Longevity Village". The inhabitants of that village drink continually the tea made from the leaves and flowers which they themselves plucked. It is beyond the shadow of a doubt that they owe their long life to this tea, for none of them show any symptom of hypertension. It is highly probable that the elimination of hypertension brings with it the disappearance of carcinoma and cardiovascular diseases.

3.According to the Chinese Clinical Handbook for New Ways of Using Common Medicines, 596 people were kept on record in an experiment. Each of these people steeped 3-6 grams of tea-leaf flower in boiling water and drank the beverage so made as if it were common tea. They did so for three months. Of these 596 people, 254 showed no more symptoms of hypertension or showed conspicuous alleviation of the symptoms, there were 143 whose blood pressure had been lowered to below 140/90 mm Hg, and there were 268 whose systolic or diastolic pressure had become lower by 19.5 mm Hg. This means that the rate of effectiveness of tea-leaf flower in curing hypertension was over 85%. It was also found that the rate of effectiveness of drinking the tea for a period of 6 months reached 93.3%. As mentioned in the preceding paragraph, the active ingredients of the medicinal tea tend to stay in the blood for a long time. This phenomenon precludes to a large extent a rebound of the blood pressure. Of course, it is advisable that you continue drinking the tea after your blood pressure has come down to the normal level.
