In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the leaves of the bamboo plant are most commonly used medicinally. However, there are five parts of bamboo that are used and each has its own unique medicinal properties. They are bamboo shavings, dried sap, liquid sap, bland leaves and bitter leaves. While they can all overlap in function, they each have varying strengths and applications including the treatment of febrile diseases.
