Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

Baikal Shisha ( Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi)

Baikal Shisha (Scutellaria baicalensis)
Baikal Shisha ( Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi)

The Baikal Shishak belongs to the miraculous family of the Lamiaceae ( Lamiaceae ) and has extensive use in TČM. Its main constituents include flavonoids bajkalein, bajcalin, vogonin, vogonoside, oroxylin A, chrysin, apigetrin and others (see Li2011pep ). The main flavonoids of the genus Shihak are specific and are non-existent ( Zhao2016sfb ). Shihaku Bajkalski is similar in terms of content to bearded bearded beetle ( Scutellaria barbata ) and other species (for example, the American sidewort , S. lateriflora ).

Effects of Baikal Shisha

Baikal Shishak is a typical adaptogen and has a wide use in TČM. For a systematic overview of its effects, see the Li2011pep scientific review. Shihash helps with many diseases, of which the most important is:

These are scientifically substantiated claims. You can display your scientific articles (as elsewhere) by clicking on the references in brackets. Overall, the shihite is undoubtedly one of the most important anti-diabetic and anticancer herbs of TČM .

Anti-rabies effects of silk

Research into the anticancer effects of various herbs and fungi is nowadays immensely popular, so we have many new promising drugs. In addition to the interest of scientists, Šišák also has the trust of TČM, which ranks him among the 5 most effective anticancer substances. The Taiwanese TCE in cancer describes as one of the most important drugs two types of shihak: bajkal shag and bearded shag. Proof of this assertion are the recent statistical studies Lai2012ppc , Yeh2014hdc and Chao2014ppc , which document the use of Taiwan's breasts in breast cancer and colorectal cancer . Shihak is very commonly used in TČM for other cancers, but the relevant statistical studies are not yet complete. The efficacy of hepatic liver cancer (hepatoma) is demonstrated in an experimental study of Kan2017sbd . The first paragraph of Taiwanese overview Ting2015ptr is also worth mentioning .

Antidiabetic, vascular and other effects of shingles

TCT doctors recommend Baikal Shihak as an effective cure for diabetes. Evidence of this claim is already mentioned in the above-mentioned study Yang2015dai , Xiao2014pte , Zhang2015wso . There are other publications that can be comfortably found online. As an antidiabetic medicine, the shihak is often combined with another effective plant, Chinese Coptis . Those interested in this claim strongly recommend reading the Liu2013aet and Zhen2011aec .

Also, the suitability of diabetics as a drug in diabetes also contributes to the treatment of atherosclerosis, which progresses faster than in healthy people in diabetics. Those interested in this claim strongly recommend the Liu2014oab study, which found a combination of bajcalin (shihak) and geniposide ( jasmine gardenia ) effective against atherosclerosis in mice. The effects of the cardiovascular disease on the cardio-vascular disease have already been mentioned above, I suggest to those interested in my own research or site about heart disease , stroke , atherosclerosis and hypertension . It is interesting to note that according to Li2016bes, the rhinoceros in the rat model improved erection disturbed by experimental diabetes.

Another known effect of Shishak is its specific effect against inflammation ( Yoon2009aes , Dong2015bil ) and allergies ( Jung2012aes , Shin2014pes and others). For those interested in these two health claims, I strongly recommend that you read the four publications referenced in the previous sentence. Although they do not even fight against herbs today, the superstitions of ineffectiveness between university-educated doctors continue to persist. It is also worth mentioning the antiseptic properties of silk which can be divided into antibacterial ( Bozov2015aan , Qian2015sbb ) and antiviral ( Li2015aeb , Kwon2016aao ). Shishak is a welcome addition to the treatment of respiratory infections ( Chen2017sba , Shi2016bsb and others), bowel problems ( Ribeiro2016ebg , Liu2015bro ) and hepatitis ( Guo2007ava ). It is also well known that shihak is a powerful antioxidant .

Finally, I would like to mention that in the herbal industry, the shihashi is also prescribed for nervous problems, especially against depression . I am less certain about its nootropic effects , its effect on Alzheimer's disease and the possible effect of improving sleep . For more fun, I do not refer to these claims, and instead, I give the old Anglo-American saying "you can google too". And if you do that, use Google Scholar instead of Google . Your attention will certainly not be missed by Zdeňka Navrátilová's article on the antidepressant properties of silk on the competitive herbal site of the leading Czech toxicologist and radiologist Dr. Patocks . I will also tell you that the cochlea influences cerebral GABA receptors , among other things.

Shihak is a typical plant adaptogen

Just like ginseng , baikal has a list of health effects, the length of which would have a tendency to apologize, especially those from pharmaceutical companies whose drugs are the opposite of adaptogens. In the world of pharmaceutical companies, the licensed indications of approved medicines are being challenged by strong legal fights based on the Paracelsovian view of current health legislation (which pharmaceutical companies have helped in one way or another). According to Paracelsus' view , each drug always has one major effect (the one we are just treating) and all other effects (which do not affect the affected physiological parameter) are side effects whether they benefit or harm the patient. And it is natural that when treating small-dose poisons to treat, as Paracelsus did (and became famous), the side effects would be rather negative. But with adaptogens like a shishak, the situation is quite different.

The Baikal Shihak and other Scutellaria species of the adaptogen are no doubt fulfilling as well as the ginseng model adaptogen. Adaptogens by definition can not be poisonous and, behold, the world, the ginseng and the baykalis are really non-toxic. It remains a mystery as to how inexhaustible herbs can exist when, according to Paracelsa, sola dosis facit venenum ("just dope poison"). But it is a fact that a suicide who would have the intention of poisoning a bayalist shishak would face major problems in pursuing his intention. (This fact has been demonstrated experimentally by Yimam2016wro .) Ginseng and shishak can be seen as Paracelsus medicines if these plants are used to treat a specific disease symptom. In that case, however, we will see that they are drugs that, in the discipline of influencing easily visible physiological parameters, will be far behind the poisons, which instantly will earn miracles and allegations of ineffectiveness. In addition, we know that these plants have many side effects, but they will all be positive, so our plants will immediately envy the envy and doubt of Paracelsky competition, whose side effects are generally negative. Looking at adaptogens like Paracelsus drugs does not make sense. The effects of adaptogens are chemically measurable, but adaptogens do not have the dramatic effects of the poisons used. Shiashak treats a combination of such effects that do not demonstrate his strength of tachycardia, bradycardia, or the ability to bring the patient into a coma. And those who think of the whole science adaptogene theory a priori as mere advertising (they know about the cheeks and the influence of the science of a known company) can still give their confidence to the non-scientific practice of the TCM . The non-scientific practice of TCM in the world is run by millions of university-educated physicians (although many are only Chinese), and for those who are bayaliski and bearded beehives. Finally, the usual cliché: one who doubts the validity of the statement in the previous sentence is warmly encouraged to read the publication Zhao2016sbg , the full text of which is publicly available .
