This episode covers the Chinese herb Dan Dou Chi (Prepared Soybean). This is not only a relatively common herb, it is also a very common food. Besides covering the basics of Chinese herbology including category, and functions, we will explore the history, quality, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each herb. And then there is always something a little quirky about an episode. This episode we dive into one of the absolutely fundamental concepts in Chinese medicine and Chinese thought: the Wǔ Xíng or Five Phases (also translated as the Five Elements).
