Details of Taishan Bedrock Powder
Sha Ren is a famous anti-nausea herb that supports a full-term pregnancy.

Alternative Names

  • Great Mountain Bedrock Powder
  • Tai Shan Pan Shi San
  • Powder that Gives the Stability of Mount Tai

About this formula: the mention of the “Tai Shan”, or “great mountain” is an image of stability in Chinese culture like the “Rock of Gibraltar” is used by a financial services firm to promote stability.

“Instability” is how Chinese medicine refers to a tendency toward miscarriages. Those who benefit the most from this formula are fatigued and weak as a rule. There may be a pale complexion and lack of appetite as well.

  • The four herbs listed above all belong to the core blood-promoting formula in Chinese medicine called Tang-kuei Four Combination (Si Wu Tang). This is a delicous formula that we promote as a coffee substitute here at Eagle Herbs called Four Miracle Brew. There is nothing in this formula that will cause one to stay awake as may be the case with coffee. However, these blood promoting herbs could give you more endurance rather than too much energy.

  • The two herbs listed above are both good at supporting a full-term pregnancy. As is the case with much of Chinese medicine, using these herbs in women with a tendency toward miscarriage is a time-tested observation that has been used by Chinese herbalists since the mid-1500s when records of this formula first appeared.
  • Xu Duan translates to “connect what is broken” and is often used to help with the healing of broken bones. It also supports the lower back which is necessary if you’re carrying a baby in your abdomen. Huang Qin is also commonly used in support of a full-term pregnancy. It is also said to “calm the fetus”. When there is an accumulation of internal heat in the body, it can cause excessive fetal kicking or movement in the same way that a fever can cause restlessness and irritability in an adult.

  • This is another herb known to “calm the fetus” and support full-term pregnancy. It also harmonizes the digestion. Basically, this is an anti-nausea herb that also helps the stomach digest some of the heavier herbs in this formula (mostly in that blood-building portion of the formula). Those herbs are heavier, sticker, more moistening. So they can cause a tummy ache in those with weak digestion. This herb helps to prevent that side-effect.
