In traditional Chinese medicine, the root of euphorbia (Gan Sui) is often used for conditions of the lung, kidney, and large intestine. It is used as a diuretic and a laxative, through its expulsion of water from the chest and abdomen. It is used to expel heat, reduce swellings, act as a decongestant, reduce the incidence of edema, and reduce inflammation of the lymph glands. It may be applied externally to reduce swelling, inflammation, and skin lesions. Euphorbia is also used for dilating peripheral blood vessels and reducing cirrhosis of the liver.
