Benefits

This remarkable formulation balances the need to pee with preventing dehydration.

Ingredients

Fu Ling 茯苓 sclerotium of tuckahoe, China root, hoelen, Indian bread Poria Cocos

  • This gentle herb is popularly used to reduce edema by stimulating the urinary output. Makes you pee, in other words.
  • Fu Ling also calms the spirit which is another way to address any discomfort. When you’re upset, things hurt more. When you’re calm, discomfort has less affect.
  • One more thing, this herb stimulates digestive functions if that’s an issue for you.

Zhu Ling 豬苓 polyporus Polyporus umbellatus

  • Zhu ling is, like Fu Ling above, a diuretic herb that helps regulate the free flow of urine. Unlike Fu Ling it doesn’t do anything for the spirit or digestion, but it’s diuretic (pee-inducing) function is stronger.

Ze Xie 澤瀉 alisma rhizome, water plantain Rhizoma Alismatis Orientalis [supports pregnancy]

  • Ze Xie translates to “marsh drain”. This herb drains your stinky, turbid, backed up, fluids by regulating the urinary bladder functions. So it is another diuretic.

Hua Shi 滑石 talcum powder talcum

  • Hua Shi translates to “slippery stone”. Take some talcum powder that you may already have in your medicine cabinet. Rub it between your fingers. Slippery, isn’t it? Turns out it helps urine slip out of the body too, especially when it feels backed up.
  • Note: don’t start making tea out of the talcum powder in your medicine chest. It may have other ingredients or is otherwise unsuitable for internal use.

E Jiao 阿膠 ass-hide glue, donkey-hide gelatin, a jiao, gelatin Asini Corii Colla [supports pregnancy]

  • E Jiao, we certainly did have some fun with this one in Chinese medicine school. I mean, how can you NOT make fun of an herb that is made out of ass hide?
  • Still it turns out to be a very helpful herb for moistening things that are dry. All the herbs that support urinary output can dry you out. This herb prevents that from occurring.
