The Herbs in Endocrine Health
Jing Tonifying Herbs
Steamed Rehmannia Root
Steamed Rehmannia is said to be the “Kidney’s own food." It is thus believed to be a Kidney tonic and longevity herb and is found in many common "anti aging" formulations for longevity, and rejuvenation. It is also considered a premium blood tonic and is said to benefit sexual functions in men and women. Steamed Rehmannia is said to be warm in nature. It is one of the three primary Yin essence (Jing) tonics of Chinese herbalism (the other two being Lycium and He Shou Wu).
Lycium (Goji berry) provides the reserve energy necessary to handle just about any difficulty. It is one of the most powerful Yin Jing tonics in the world. It is said that constant consumption of Lycium will beget a cheerful attitude, and there’s nothing like good cheer to overcome stress. Lycium, like the other super-tonic adaptogens, makes you strong, relaxed and resilient (in this regard, Lycium is also an excellent Shen tonic).
Schizandra enters the Kidney meridian and tonifies the Water Qi of the Kidney. It plays a key role in the re-building and maintenance of Jing. It tonifies the Yin component of Jing.
Dioscorea is a valuable herb in the process of rebuilding and maintaining healthy Kidney functions. It has both Yin Jing building power and an astringent action which helps consolidate the Kidney energy, preventing “leaking” of fluids.
Eucommia is a superb Jing tonic, used to strengthen the back (especially the lower back), skeleton, and joints (especially the knees and ankles). Eucommia is believed to confer strength and flexibility to the ligaments and tendons. It is often used by martial artists, yoga practitioners, Qi Gung practitioners, and other athletes to strengthen the back, knees, and the entire body. It has been found to be very helpful at regulating blood pressure, especially high blood pressure. Eucommia is widely used in China as a safe and effective sex tonic for men and women. It provides powerful and safe fundamental adaptive energy to the body. It is primarily regarded as a major Yang tonic, though it also nourishes the Yin.
Epimedium is a powerful Yang Jing tonic. Epimedium is widely known as a powerful tonic and sexual stimulant. In fact, Epimedium is known as "horny goat weed" because when goats eat it, they tend to copulate. It is considered by Oriental people to be a powerful aphrodisiac. Scientific research has confirmed that Epimedium quickly releases sex hormones in men and women. But Epimedium is much more than a mere sexual stimulant. It is a superb tonic herb that effects many important functions in the body. Epimedium is used to strengthen the bones and joints. It is also known to calm and relax the heart (it does not cause high or low blood pressure). Recent research indicates that Epimedium is a strong immune system regulator.
Qi and Blood Tonifying Herbs
Asian Panax Ginseng is the quintessential Qi tonic of Chinese herbalism. It has been known for its ability to help people handle stress for thousands of years, and is now used by millions of people to help handle stress more effectively. Ginseng may be consumed on a regular basis so that when stress occurs, the body and mind are fully energized and ready.
Poria is a very precious mushroom that grows on the roots of old pine trees. It is a superb Qi tonic. It has strong immunological potency. It also is an excellent Qi tonic and it improves fluid circulation throughout the body. It was a favorite herb of Taoists in China for over two thousand years because it cleans the body and enhances wisdom.
Licorice Root is an important tonic herb that harmonizes all the ingredients in any formula. It detoxifies the body of hundreds of known toxins and is a powerful adaptogenic herb. It is an important Qi tonic.
This special tonic fruit has been used since ancient times as a nutrient tonic, a blood cleanser, and as an important adjunctive herb to other tonics. Jujube is universally believed in the Orient to build strength and extend life. Jujube is slightly sedative and removes obstructions of the energy flow. It is an important Qi tonic.
Dioscorea Root benefits both the Yin and the Yang of the Lungs, Kidneys and Spleen. It builds Spleen Qi, which results in strong digestion and metabolism. It is often combined with Ginseng, White Atractylodes and Poria to fortify the Qi producing power of the digestive tract. Used with Ginseng and Schizandra, Dioscorea helps strengthen the ability to build Qi in the Lungs and generally improve Lung functioning, which in turn strengthens the whole body.
Blood Tonifying Herbs
Schizandra is a major adaptogenic herb. It is included in all adaptogenic formulations and is a superb buffer against the ravages of stress.
Dang Gui Root
Dang Gui is a potent and effective blood tonic. As a blood tonic, Dang Gui is almost incomparable. Few herbs in the world are either as safe or as potent as blood tonics. It is commonly used by millions of people to treat common anemia. It can be used after an illness, injury or surgery to rebuild red blood cells and to increase blood volume. Dang Gui is found in numerous general tonic formulations as part of the blood-building component of the formula. Men as well as women benefit from strong blood.
Qi Consolidating (Astringent) Herbs
Cornus is a mild Yin tonic which acts upon the Kidney, most specifically upon the urogenital system. Its tonic action is highly magnified by its powerful astringent action. When combined with other tonic herbs, Cornus becomes a powerhouse, and makes the other herbs much more powerful as well. Being a warm Yin tonic makes it a somewhat unique herb. Its great power does not lie in the actual amount of Yin provided by the Cornus itself --- it lies in Cornus’s incredible astringent action on the Kidney system, thus enhancing the body’s ability to conserve Yin reserves.
Schizandra is one of the primary astringent herbs used in tonic herbalism. It consolidates Qi and fluids and prevents leakage.
It has an astringent action which helps consolidate the Kidney energy, preventing “leaking” of fluids. It is widely recommended for the “leakage” problems which occur as a result of a deficiency of the Kidney.
