Tian Ma/Gastrodia, refers to the tuberous root of an orchid-like plant, gastrodia elata. It was originally called Chi Jian, i.e. red arrow, as the plant has a red stem shaped like an arrow. Tian Ma/Gastrodia has been incorporated into traditional Chinese medicine for at least 2,000 years for promoting health and prolong life.
From a Chinese medical perspective:
There are two traditional uses for Gastrodia:
1. To calm the liver wind. Gastrodia is used for syndromes of internal liver wind, such as convulsions, tetanus and epilepsy, as well as dizziness and headache due to excess liver yang. More recently, it has been used for the treatment of neurasthenia, nervous headache and hypertension.
2. To expel wind evil and alleviate pain. In these instances, Gastrodia is used to treat migraine, arthralgia due to wind dampness, numbness and general fatigue.
