13-week protector, prevention of miscarriage in early pregnancy, adjusts Qi and blood circulation
Pregnancy Protection contains well-known blood tonics that were traditionally considered “women’s herbs” because they regulate menstruation, reduce pain and support healthy blood production. They include dong quai/tang kuei (angelica sinensis) and ligusticum. Research indicates that the combination of white peony, used for menstrual pain and excess menstruation, and angelica is considered safe for pregnancy.
Anxiety may be a causative factor in miscarriage especially with first-time mothers. Pregnancy Protection has added magnolia bark to improve sleep and ease stress and anxiety. It lends protection against oxidation and inflammation. (healthline.com, psychologytoday.com) The mother’s body pain may weaken her energy reserve and endanger the pregnancy. Pregnancy Protection has added a noted analgesic herb notopterygium root. It encourages sweating to rid the body of aches and chills made worse by stress, weakness, excess cold raw foods, or inclement weather; it supports joints and may ease upper extremity pain and body aches.

Add five bowls of water. Boil five bowls of water into one bowl, then filter and take the soup.
The amount of water is a key point because it can directly affect the efficacy of traditional Chinese medicine, so if cooking the herbal soup according to the guidelines, the best results will be achieved.
The traditional method to prepare this sort of herbal mixture is “五碗水煎至一碗: Boil five bowls of water down to one” which makes a water extract. However, if you are new to Chinese herbs, you may find their smell to be strong and the taste rather bitter sweet. We suggest that you become acquainted with them gradually. Empty the package of herbs into – quarts of water and simmer them for up to 30 minutes. A non-metal pot works best. If you have it use a ceramic coated or glass pot. The same herbs may be used again, the second cooking can be as long as 1 hour. Inhale the steam to get acquainted with the herbs. They may help clear congestion and feel relaxing. Allow the mixture to cool until it is comfortably warm. Drink up to a cup once or twice daily between meals.
