He Shou Wu - The Great Kidney and Adrenal Restorer

He Shou Wu: Sourcing from the Source

One of the key aspects of bringing our adaptogenic tonic herbs into your lifestyle is that you begin to take the herbal medicine *before* you get sick...(prevention being better than cure, and all that.)

Tonic herbs (as a general category) have regenerative abilities that feed and nourish our core organs and support the tonification of our body's systems - think the building and maintenance phases, instead of the direct action many 'regular' herbs have. Tonic herbs can help to ensure that in this crazy world, we never reach the point of exhaustion, despite juggling a million things at once; exhaustion is the seed for degeneration. We obviously recommend adjusting lifestyle wherever possible to be more health-promoting, but we also understand that many are in situations that are challenging and hard to shift (hello mamas and carers!). Never lean on the herbs, but get to know them as allies who can assist as you transition into a more sustainable phase of life.

 

So when exhaustion does occur and the Kidneys and adrenals are tapped out, we look to the primary Yin Jing herb He Shou Wu to bring us back into balance. He Shou Wu is a beloved restorative herb in the tonic system, used for bringing the core energy levels up to a place where function is restored and vitality can return.

 

Check out this blog, where you can see Mason live, at our He Shou Wu farm.

 

He Shou Wu (also known as Fo Ti), is the great adrenal and Kidney-healing herb of the Orient, recognized by Taoists for its life-extending abilities. Bringing harmony and restoration to your Jing essence (your core energy), this herb is a favorite for restoring depleted vitality and bringing the fundamental energy back to the body for ultimate vigor. This super adaptogen is known to bring healing to the sex hormones, that are crucial to every function of the body and our metabolism. It's also a herb that works on the Liver channel, so can be helpful for those who are Blood deficient or who require Kidney and Liver support. Check with your acupuncturist or integrative health practitioner to determine if He Shou Wu is right for you.

The Year of the Yin Metal Ox

by Tahnee McCrossin February 15, 2021

In Chinese folklore, the story of the Ox is that she was a star, removed from the heavens by the gods and goddesses to help humans. The gods and goddesses told Ox to help humans cultivate enough food to eat every three days - but Ox got muddled and told the humans she was here to help them eat three times a day - oops! For that reason, Ox has been helping humans by working all day long to ensure we produce enough food to eat regular meals.
