The first four weeks post partum are seen as an important time for rest and recover in traditional Chinese culture. The main emphasis from a herbal perspective is to rebuild the Liver Blood which not only helps with emotional and physical well being but also encourages healthy milk supply.
Chinese Angelica, Ginger and Chiense dates are a historic postpartum food therapy combination which is often added to hearty lamb and pork stews. Together they act to nourish the Liver Blood and warm the Spleen Yang encouraging healing and circulation. Go Ji berries support the blood nourishing aspect while Dioscorea, Astragalus and Codonopsis root giie the Spleen Qi a strong boost encouraging good digestive function and supporting the body.
Add to bone broth, hearty soup and stews or drink as a tonic.
