Lotus Seed for Chronic Diarrhea, Ejaculation, Gonorrhea and Polydipsia

Lotus seed is used as a mild tonic food in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to treat loose stools (chronic diarrhea / dysentery), ejaculation, gonorrhea and polydipsia (thirst).

According to TCM, Lotus seed has astringent property, and can be used to treat a variety of disorders of “leaking”, including loose stools, men’s ejaculation, women’s gonorrhea, and vaginal bleeding. It also has mild effect to clear heat, calm nerves and relieve thirst.

Lotus seeds can be eaten as nuts, or cooked in soup, or combined with ginseng and other herbs in medical formulas.

Lotus seeds are most commonly sold in the shelled and dried form. You can find dried lotus seeds at many Asian markets.

Please note, the astringent effect of lotus seeds is moderate. It may take weeks or months to see the improvement in treating the symptoms.
