御方 壮腰 壮阳 健腎 茶
A Strong Back, Muscles and Bones / Zhuang Yao Jian Shen Tea
A Strong Back, Muscles and Bones
壯腰健腎茶 (Zhuang Yao Jian Shen Herbal Tea):
For weakness or pain in the lower body: low back pain, weak back, hips, knees, legs, weak tendons.
A Strong Back, Muscles, and Bones may prove to be a useful fall/winter tonic for weak or aging people or anyone who suffers from chills and weakness, and chronic deep aches and pains that improve with the application of heat and gentle massage. Chinese doctors recommend this remedy for people with kidney yang and kidney qi deficiency: 补肝肾、益精髓、强骨健筋 which may manifest as the body’s inability to support strong muscles and bones with many resulting health issues ranging from chronic diarrhea, bone fractures, back and leg pain, poor circulation, low sexual vitality, and osteoporosis. Since the Kidney/adrenal Qi impacts many aspects of health in the body, there may be accompanying troubles such as low immunity, depression, obesity, heart weakness, or being accident-prone.
Either men or women may use A Strong Back, Muscles, and Bones for exhaustion with chronic pain and weakness. However a warming tonic will have side-effects for people who already have inflammation issues. It should be avoided during a cold or flu, fever, headache, acne, or other internal heat discomforts. Inflammatory heat feels hot, burning, pounding, unrelenting, and sometimes disorienting.
Otherwise heating sexual tonic herbs such as epimedium (lusty goat weed) may be used by men or women when balanced, as it is in this formula, with cooling, moistening rejuvenating herbs such as wolfberry (goji berry) Polygonum multi. (fo-ti) and rehmannia. (If you want a formula to tone energy and blood without warming herbs see Ten Warriors. )
Cautions and Contraindications: Heating. Avoid during a cold or flu
Eucommia Bark, Rehmannia Root Tuber, Fructus Corni, Himalayan Teasel Root, Epimedium Herb, Euryale Seed, fox nuts, Wolfberry Fruit, Sharpleaf Galangal, Polygonum multiflorum, Morinda Root
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 of cooking this herbal tonic is to make a strong water extract: 五碗水煎至一碗 : Boil five bowls of water to one. It makes a strong-tasting brew that some people prefer. However it can be cooked twice by blanching the herbs in hot water, simmering them the first time for 30 minutes, drinking the tea, then cooking a second time for up to two hours for a stronger beverage. The beverage can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Add some to your home-cooked bone broth.
The herbs may be added to a liter of vodka to make an alcohol tincture. Add all the herbs to an air-tight glass container and keep it away from heat and light for 2 weeks. The dosage for an alcohol tincture is from 10 – 20 drops in a wine glass of water.
