Herbs in Chinese Medicine : Herbs in Chinese Medicine: Shu Di Huang & Sheng Di Huang


This next herb we talk about is called Rehmannia.
It’s two different forms of Rehmannia we use. The Shu Di Huang and the Sheng Di Huang. The
Sheng Di is unprocessed, it’s merely dried. The Shi Di is actually processed oftentimes
with vinegar in order to change the properties a little bit. So if you really want to be
the in crowd with herbs, we actually drop the Huang and we call them Shu Di and Sheng
Di. So if you’re really trying to impress your herb friends make sure you use the shortened
abbreviation there. So, this is Shu Di which is the processed Rehmannia. We use this to
nourish the blood in the yen of the body. And so we can use this in formula or even
add it to chicken soup. It will cause it to turn an interesting color of black but it’s
actually quite tasty when you add it to soup. The one thing you have to be careful though
is if you use too much of the Rehmannia it can, sometimes cause some bloating. So if
you’ve already got some loose stools or some bloating, you might want to stay away from
this herb. But generally, it’s thought of as a great blood tonic and a yen tonic, which
is those nourishing fluids, fluent fluids of the body. Try to find some Rehmannia and
enjoy it.
