A few months ago, I had extreme abdominal pain. It was so painful I couldn’t do ANYTHING. =-(. You can find the article here.
And stubborn me didn’t want to go home to mom so I tried to suck it up and cure myself. No luck…
About a week later… I finally gave in and went home because sometimes mommys know best and sure enough…
She said she had just bought some “Lianghe” and it is suppose to be really good for the stomach + lots of collagen. So later that evening, she made it into a herbal soup and added gogi berries during the last 10 minutes of simmer time.
It was very chewy and gooey lol. The image above is what it looks like in its dried form (how most herbal medicine ingredients come) and the below image is how it looks when it is has been soaked/cooked for a few hours (usually about 3 hours).
So of course right after I ate it, I did my research.
Here is what I found:
According to Qi-Journal, the Snow Lotus Flower
“is extremely rare and precious. It comes from one of the most remote areas of Asia. Snow Lotus has a general health promoting effect. It regulates the functions of different organs. In particular, it improves the immune system, prevents internal and external diseases, improves adaptability, and eliminates body toxins. Snow Lotus is anti-aging, strengthens the body, preserves youthfulness, and helps with all kinds of diseases. Snow Lotus calms and eliminates wind, smoothes Liver function, sedates rising Liver yang. It replenishes the Yin, strengthens the Yang, tonifies the blood, strengthens the sinews, relieves swelling and pain, improves blood circulation, removes blood stagnation, is said to remove sludge from the blood vessels, and promotes longevity. It clears away heat, toxic material and dampness. It is extremely rare and precious. Though it is equally beneficial to men and women, Snow Lotus has been the favorite herb of female Daoists and Qigong practitioners for many centuries.”
But most importantly, it helped me with my
- Digestive Disorder
- Stomach Ache
- Peptic Ulcer
You can find the complete list here.
Now I’m sure you guys are wondering where to buy this. Right now, my mom purchases it per pound (around $50) at a Chinese herbal medicine store in San Gabriel Valley. If you are interested in some, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will make sure you get some ^_^.
So the question now is… did it work?
After taking it for about a week, my stomach pains were gone. The slimy, gooeyness actually coats your stomach and slowly heals it. I am all about healing our bodies naturally so I HIGHLY recommend the Snow Lotus Pod for those of you that have digestive issues or are prone to ulcers like me.
Let me know if you have any questions. I will be more than happy to help!!!
