Can I use grass?

The herbaceous part of the plant is not used for medicinal purposes, since it is in it that almost all the milky juice is concentrated, which is very, very poisonous. It is no wonder that even the collection of the rhizomes of euphorbia Pallas is strongly recommended to be carried out only after its grassy part completely wilts, and then, in completely closed clothes, thick gloves and with glasses on. The use of a gauze bandage on the face or respirator is also encouraged.

Such precautions are necessary, for the reason that, falling on the skin or the mucous membrane of the plant's milky, causes a strong burn, and when ingested in its raw form in the human body can cause serious poisoning.

For medicinal purposes only the rhizome of the plant is used.. It should be collected only at the very beginning of autumn, when the whole bush has completely wilted.

  • Powder from Pallas root powder is a very effective tool in the treatment of abscesses, purulent wounds, burns and furunculosis. Preparing such a powder by simply grinding the dry rhizome in a coffee grinder.
  • Pallas root pills with honey are an effective means of improving immunity and strengthening the cardiovascular system. The latter also contributes to the stabilization of pressure.

Pills are prepared by mixing 100 grams of powdered rhizome of euphorbia Pallis and 50 grams of not too liquid honey. From this mixture form 5-millimeter balls, spread on clean paper or baking sheet and put in a cool place to set.


Even the most healing plant can turn into a real poison if it is used incorrectly.. The same can be attributed to the euphorbia Pallas. Before you begin the process of treatment by this plant independently, you should certainly consult a doctor.

Euphorbia Pallas is categorically contraindicated in the case of:

  • pregnancy
  • individual intolerance and sensitivity to the components contained in this plant,
  • lactation (breastfeeding),
  • tachycardias
  • excessive excitability.

How to prepare raw materials?

As mentioned above, only the rhizome of the plant is used as a therapeutic raw material. You can prepare it for further use as follows:

  1. Collected rhizomes of the plant must be freed from excess soil and dirt and rinsed in cool water.
  2. Washed rhizomes spread out on a flat surface and put in the sun for drying.
  3. After the rhizomes have dried and a brown crust is formed on them, this crust must be carefully cleaned and the roots left to dry for about a week, but not in the sun, but in a shady, well-ventilated place.
  4. After the final drying, the roots can be folded into a bag of fabric (preferably, if it is natural burlap).

How to grow?

Despite the fact that Euphorbia Pallas is endemic from China, Korea, Mongolia and the Altai Territory and the Transbaikalia of the Russian Federation, yet many gardeners and gardeners manage to grow it on their own balconies, window sills and plots.

In fact, this type of plant is unpretentious in cultivation and it requires the following conditions for successful growth:

  1. It is necessary to choose sand and peat soil with an admixture of turf and deciduous soil, as well as with a certain amount of stones, since it is in this soil that the plant grows in nature.
  2. For the cultivation of Pallas use deep and not too wide pots-pots.
  3. Spurge Pallas is not particularly fond of the sun, so to grow it in direct sun is not worth it. Although it is permissible in the summer to plant the plant in open ground, it is still better to do it in a shady and not too hot place. The optimum temperature for growing this plant is + 17 ... +20 degrees.
  4. It is necessary to water the plant in each season of the year differently: in spring and autumn - once every 14 days, in summer - once a week, in the winter they are limited to watering once a month or every 21 days.
  5. In order for the plant to go actively in growth, it needs fertilizing. Such can be a specialized fertilizer for cacti. It is not necessary to fertilize it in winter. For the rest of the time, it will be enough to feed once every 2 weeks.


At home, the plant propagates exclusively by leaf or stem cutting. Performs grafting as follows:

    From the top of the plant they pinch off a small piece of leaf or stem, 5-7 centimeters long.

It is necessary to pinch off part of the plant, but in no case be cut off. A cut stalk will never take root.

  • Put the stalk and wait until the milky sap is drained, and the damaged area is tightened with a protective film.
  • After this, the cuttings are planted in a sand-peat mixture.

    Rooting cuttings occur in 13-15 days. Seed propagation of this type of milkweed in the home is considered impossible.

    Euphorbia is affected by mealybug, shield and spider mite. If euphorbia feels a lack of phosphorus in the soil, it will begin to throw off the foliage, and if it is watered excessively, the stem of the plant may rot. The perceptible lack of light hinders the growth of euphorbia.

    In whatever form and in whatever diseases euphorbia of Pallas is used, it has a therapeutic effect very quickly and tangibly. However, once again we strongly recommend that before starting the process of treatment with this rather poisonous plant, thoroughly consult with your doctor and perform all actions under his control.

    A bit of history

    For the first time the healing properties of individual plants belonging to the genus Euphorbia, became interested in Yuba Eforbe - a doctor who served at the court of the Moorish king. As for the scientific name of a particular species, there was a confusing story. Initially, the German botanist Fyodor Fisher was engaged in the description of the plant. But by absentmindedness, he gave him the name of an already existing species. Subsequently, this oversight was noticed by another botanist, Nikolai Turchaninov. He specialized in the systematics of species and wanted to correct the mistake by giving the plant the name of Fisher himself, but by mistake he wrote it down like Euphorbia Pallas.

    Once this perennial was considered a good remedy for constipation. His juice got rid of birthmarks, warts and corns. Mongolian and Chinese healers have long used peasant root. Application and useful properties, photos and history of this plant are studied so well that it is recommended today to enhance sexual desire, maintain erection and treatment of venereal diseases.

    Short description

    Euphorbia Pallas (or Fisher) is a herbaceous plant with a well-developed root system and a long, strong stem. Its height can reach forty centimeters. On a simple, well-pubescent stalk, there are wide opposite leaves. And below they are scale-like, and above - lily.

    Collection of raw materials

    As a rule, in medicine, the euphorbia of Pallas is used. They begin to harvest it immediately after the wilting of the ground part of the plant. This usually happens not earlier than July.

    Since the milky juice of the grass is poisonous, it is collected in gloves of fairly dense material and special protective glasses. The root is extracted by hand, trying to dig it together with the lateral processes. The extracted material is cleaned from the remnants of the soil, washed and left to wither in the sun. After some time, the peeling brownish bark is removed from the roots, cut into large pieces and laid out at some distance from each other. Dry them in the open air, not forgetting to turn over periodically. Otherwise, the raw material will begin to rot and acquire a foul, musty smell.

For the preparation of alcohol extracts and extracts, milkweed root can be used fresh, and for long-term storage, it is advisable to dry it in natural conditions, for example, strung on a synthetic thread (fishing line) and hang it in the attic or in a room with good air exchange.

    Some healers prefer cutting the root into thin plates before drying, but this is not the best option. Under the influence of oxygen in the air, the oxidation of the chemical compounds that make up the euphoria occurs, so it is better to grind the raw materials immediately before preparing the drugs.

    To store alcohol-containing preparations on the basis of milkweed, as well as dried raw materials, is allowed up to 3 years.

    Sometimes for the preparation of drugs using the milky juice of milkweed, which can be obtained in any period of the growing season, but better during flowering.

    Pharmacological properties

    As previously mentioned, Euphorbia Pallas has long been used to treat some "male problems", in particular erectile dysfunction. Is this how the group of Tomsk scientists tried to find out. As a result of the experiments, the researchers found that the peasant root preparations, due to the presence of phytoandrogens (plant analogues of male sex hormones), are able to regulate the hormonal balance, and in some cases restore the potency in men. As is known, a decrease in erection is observed in a number of diseases of the genitourinary system (prostatitis, adenoma), and prescribing medications based on Pallas euphorbia in most cases achieves a positive therapeutic effect. If erectile dysfunction is associated with severe and irreversible organic disorders or natural aging, then use milkweed preparations is meaningless.

    Interestingly, the muzhik root was also effective in treating a number of "female diseases". For example, it is used in the complex treatment of mastopathy, uterine fibroids, infertility, menopausal disorders, etc.

    The biologically active compounds that make up the Pallas euphorbia root have a bactericidal effect and have anti-inflammatory properties. Milkweed preparations have a detrimental effect on protozoa and fungal pathogenic microflora, and if you add the effect of lactones (these substances inhibit the activity of tumor cells) that make up the medical raw materials, there is every reason to assume that in the near future this plant will take its rightful place in the oncology arsenal.

    Tibetan gurus and Siberian healers use alcoholic tinctures and water extracts (decoction) of milkweed in the treatment of epilepsy, leukemia, endometritis, benign and malignant tumors of the female genital.

    Milkweed preparations stimulate the regenerative functions of the epithelium, as a result of which the healing process of wounds and erosions is accelerated.

    It has been proven that Pallas euphorbia preparations increase the body’s defenses no worse than the known immunomodulators and stimulants (eleutherococcus, aralia, and the like), so it’s not surprising that they are often used by traditional healers in the complex treatment of a wide range of diseases, as well as after chemotherapy. radiotherapy

    Drugs and dosages

    The pharmacological industry does not produce preparations based on milkweed, therefore, when preparing medicines independently, it is necessary to strictly observe the technological aspects and recommendations for treatment (dosage, frequency of administration, course duration, etc.).

    - Powder. Grind dried milkweed root with a coffee grinder to a powdered state and store in a hermetically sealed container. It is advisable to use the powder externally (as a powder) for treating traumatic skin damage, as well as eczema, ulcers, etc. In some cases, traditional healers prescribe milk powder inwards (at a dose of 0.02-0.03 g) half an hour before meals. Internal administration is recommended to increase hemoglobin and to enhance immunity.

The first of these ratios is recommended for fresh raw materials, and the second for dried. Crushed raw materials pour vodka and insist in a dark and cool place for 7 - 14 days (shake the contents daily). Store the medicinal product in a cool place (cellar or lower shelf of the refrigerator). Sometimes for the preparation of tinctures used alcohol 70% strength. Tincture is accepted according to the “slides” scheme, starting from 1 drop with a gradual elevation to 15 (increasing the dose daily by 1 drop). To achieve a "plateau slides" (15 drops), take the drug in the same dosage for 3-4 days, then do the exact opposite, that is, daily reduce the dose by 1 drop. (Note: the standard method of application is given).

    - Tincture for outdoor use. Prepared in a ratio of 1:10, for example, 200 ml of alcohol - 20 g of crushed milkweed root. Infuse for 2 weeks, then strain and store in vials of dark glass (stored in the refrigerator). The drug has disinfectant properties, is used to clean pus and accelerate wound healing. Tincture is suitable only for outdoor use!

Take the infusion up to 4 times a day and 1 st.l. in the presence of erectile dysfunction due to prostatitis, adenoma or other diseases of the male genitalia. Indications for use for women: mastopathy, fibroids, fibroids, cystic formations, infertility, etc. Preparation of decoctions involves boiling raw materials for some time (15 minutes for Pallas milkweed root). Next, the raw material is insisted for 2 hours, then filtered and used for its intended purpose. Take a decoction in the same dosage as the infusion. Indications for use: diseases of the urinary system (kidney, bladder), asthma, low hemoglobin level, leukemia, peptic ulcer or 12 duodenal ulcer, etc.
