Although earthworms are not herbs, they are nevertheless a vital component of traditional Chinese medicine. Earthworms are actually a type of animal, the Latin name of which islumbricus terrestris. Earthworms are found virtually worldwide, and live in almost any type of soil that contains the right amounts of moisture and organic particles. Earthworms are of various sizes and colors; some species in Australia can reach a length of almost 11 feet, although the typical earthworm is no more than a few inches long. Some earthworms are green, but the most common color is reddish-brown, which results from hemoglobin, a pigment in its blood.
According to the concepts of traditional Chinese medicine, earthworm is associated with the Bladder, Liver, Lung and Spleen meridians, and has salty and cold properties. It drains liver heat and clears lung heat, and can also clear heat in the collateral channels. Typically, earthworm is used with other herbs to treat a wide range of conditions, ranging from spasms and convulsions to pain relief, treatment of fevers and certain types of arthritis. It is also used to treat some types of asthma and bronchitis.
The average recommended dose of earthworm is 4.5 to 12 grams per day as an oral decoction. Larger amounts (10-20 grams) are used when fresh earthworms are employed. As a powder, 1-2 grams are recommended for oral use.
