This episode covers the Chinese herb Shu Di Huang (Prepared Rehmannia), one of the most important herbs in the Chinese pharmacopeia. It is an incredibly important and commonly used herb in many tonic and gynecological formulas. As usual we will be covering the basics of Chinese herbology including category, and functions, as well as the history, quality, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each herb. And as always, we will look at something a little different: we will have a brief introduction into pao zhi or preparation of herbs. Join us to learn about Shu Di Huang (Prepared Rehmannia).
