Trying to Get Pregnant? Try Dong Quai


I’m a firm believer that all the solution we seek can be found in nature and there is a root cause to every disease known to mankind. There’s a quote by Charlotte Gerson

“You can’t keep one disease and heal two others. when the body heals, it heals everything”

Charlotte Gerson

This quote has become the bedrock of my practice, awakening me to the stark reality that treating endometriosis only to face ovarian cysts later is far from ideal. Orthodox medicine has conditioned us to believe that a pill exists for every ailment, but in doing so, we become unwitting victims of a system driven solely by its own enrichment.

Witnessing my aunt’s arduous journey, enduring invasive mastectomies that ultimately led to a hysterectomy, deeply saddened me. It was a painful realization that natural alternatives could have prevented such drastic measures. Determined to make a difference, I immersed myself in extensive research on herbal remedies, specifically targeting the revival of reproductive health. This very quest became the catalyst for the creation of our brand and propelled me on a transformative trip to China last year.

During my time in China, I had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed traditional Chinese herbalists. It was during this enlightening experience that I unearthed the remarkable properties of a specific herb called Dong Quai. Belonging to the plant family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae), alongside parsley, carrot, and celery, Dong Quai has been utilized since ancient times to fortify the uterus, alleviate cramping and PMS symptoms, regulate estrogen levels, optimize hormone production, and restore balance to the menstrual cycle. Furthermore, it aids in improving blood circulation to the uterus while enhancing red blood cell production throughout the body, effectively reducing congestion and alleviating pain.

By correcting the course of our treatment methodologies and embracing the power of natural remedies like Dong Quai, we can empower women to reclaim control over their reproductive health. It is our unwavering commitment to unveil the wonders of nature and revolutionize the approach to women’s wellness. Together, let us embark on this transformative journey towards a brighter, healthier future.

Dong Quai, often referred to as the most potent uterine tonic known to humankind, can also serve as a powerful tool in balancing hormones and strengthening women’s reproductive organs while purifying the blood.

In addition, Dong Quai is commonly used to address conditions of stagnation, such as PCOS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and uterine fibroids. Its ability to promote increased blood flow to the reproductive system alleviates congestion and reduces pain.

Dong Quai offers remedies for various reproductive issues, including menstrual irregularities, delayed or absent menstruation, and short periods with cramping.

Moreover, when combined with other Traditional Chinese Herbs, Dong Quai effectively alleviates menopausal symptoms. A specific study demonstrated that a combination of Dong Quai and Chamomile can offer relief from common menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and insomnia.

Furthermore, for those who have been using birth control pills for an extended period and wish to restore their regular menstrual cycle, incorporating Dong Quai is advisable. It also proves beneficial in addressing light or slow-starting menstruation.

Additionally, Dong Quai exhibits high efficacy in treating blood disorders such as anemia and iron deficiency. Its stimulation of red blood cell production strengthens the blood and alleviates various deficiencies within the bloodstream.

Dong Quai is available in various forms, including capsules, raw herbs, or powder. Many individuals often feel perplexed about the ideal form or preparation. Personally, I would recommend opting for the raw herb as it ensures the consumption of undiluted constituents.

If you decide to prepare Dong Quai at home, you can use it alone or as part of a herbal blend. Some of the most common ways to prepare Dong Quai include decoctions, infusions, or tinctures.

To prepare a decoction, combine dried Dong Quai root with water, and boil the mixture for 30-60 minutes. Strain and consume the liquid.

For an infusion, steep a teaspoon of dried Dong Quai root in boiling water for 10-15 minutes. Add honey, if desired, for taste.

Tinctures are made using alcohol as a solvent. Steep the herb in alcohol for several weeks to extract its medicinal properties. The resulting solution can be taken directly or added to water.

Incorporating Dong Quai into your daily routine can offer a myriad of benefits to your reproductive health. However, it is crucial to consult a healthcare professional before introducing new supplements into your diet, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or taking medication.

Together, we can break free from the shackles of modern medicine and embrace the power of natural remedies like Dong Quai to optimize our health and wellbeing. Let us embark on this transformative journey towards a brighter, healthier future.
