The Cold Ground tincture is based on the Shao Fu Zhu Yu Tang, a blend used by traditional Chinese medicine.
This relatively modern, frequently administered blend was created in 1830 by the physician Wang Qing Ren. It’s mainly used to treat Xue Yu (blood stagnation) in the lower energiser (lower abdomen). If Han (cold) enters the body from the outside, or if Shen Yang (kidney Yang = the body’s heater) is weakened, Qi flow, followed by the flow of Xue (blood), slows down in its paths. Blood then starts stagnating, forming Xue Yu (blockages). Blockages are often accompanied by somekind of pain or tension. The Shao Fu Zhu Yu Tang Xue (blood) blend not only restarts the flow, but also warms up the lower abdomen area. It’s ideal for female patients who need warmth before their menstrual cycle begins..
