American Ginseng:

I like American ginseng because it’s a stress reducer and energizer. It also contains adaptogenic properties which helps regulate my body’s stress responses, and helps to balance my body. American ginseng is traditionally used to combat the effects of fatigue and stress. It’s also really helpful as an enhancer for my mental and physical performance while being an overall general health tonic. American ginseng contains zinc, vitamins A, B6, and C--as well as polysaccharide glycans (which is what gives American ginseng its energetic properties). American ginseng contains cooling properties, and is said to work best when taken in the hot months—but this doesn’t mean that I don’t take this healing herb in the cooler months either. I actually like it in the colder months because of its ability to fight physical and mental fatigue-- which for me, tend to happen more in the winter months than it does in the summer months. For me, I tend to need my stamina and mental alertness boosted more so in the wintertime, than in the summer. This is why American Ginseng is my all-year-round tool to boost my strength, focus, stamina, mental alertness, and memory. American ginseng is also said to have positive effect on the adrenal glands and kidneys, while also containing potent antioxidants which help to boost my immune system too.

If I was in a situation where I was dealing with post-chemo recovery, I would be bringing American ginseng into my life-- to help with the after effects of radiation. 

Medical Medium says that American ginseng can help conditions such as ADD and ADHD, neuralgia, poor digestion, rheumatism, gout, reproductive issues, chronic fatigue, depression, insomnia, cholesterol issues, loss of appetite, Alzheimer’s disease, type II diabetes. 

If I was battling a sluggish or bloated digestive tract; American Ginseng would be a part of my healing strategy. Since American ginseng is also known to increase estrogen levels in women, if I was suffering with menopause symptoms, I would be bringing American ginseng into my life as well. If I was dealing with cardiovascular issues, endocrine system disorders, or problems with my adrenals and pituitary gland; or if I needed to stimulate my central nervous system, American ginseng would be a part of my healing journey.

If I was pregnant, nursing, or if I was on blood thinning medication or other anticoagulant drugs, I would not take American ginseng. I would consult with my holistic practitioner or herbalist before administering American ginseng to my young children, but I would have no hesitation to make American ginseng tea for my older children or teenagers.
