Follow up to my previous post: Dong Chong Xia Cao another example of Ha-Shem's miraculous world!

In my Fundamentals of Oriental Medicine class last week we spoke about a remarkable Kidney and Lung Qi, Yin and Yang tonic: Dong Chong Xia Cao. (literally meaning Summer Bug winter herb). It is used to treat fatigue or exhaustion, listlessness, soft and low voice, shortness of breath, constriction of the chest, wheezing, chronic cough, cough with blood, poor appetite, weak and sore lower back and knees, poor muscle tone, night sweats, spontaneous sweat, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, anxiety, forgetfulness, poor memory, impotence, lowered sexual drive, frequent urination, with all symptoms worse on exertion. It has also recently been used in the treatment of cancer, hyperlipidemia and hypertension.
The video below presents from whence cometh this remarkable substance. Teaching us again, of the strange wonders of the A-lighty's world, which out-trump the most creative imaginations that Hollywood can come up with! And, as with the previous case, demonstrates how, when we honor this wonderful world, and work with it, rather than against it, how we are presented with so many wonderful gifts that promote our health, many of which we have yet to recognize or discover.

BTW, The cultivated form of this herb is now widely used as it has been found to have similar clinical effectiveness, low toxicity, no environmental impact and costs less than wild crafted variety.
