Blood Nourishing Foods

Blood tonic herbs are deeply nourishing and help strengthen the body’s defenses against disease.

Blood tonics can be taken at any time and often used in clinic when people are feeling typical signs of blood deficiency— low energy, sleep issues, anxiety, dryness, achy joints, dizziness (see previous posts for more).⠀ ⠀ The most common ways we incorporate these Blood nourishing herbs into daily life are:⠀ ⠀ — Snacking on a small handful goji berries and mulberries like trail mix.⠀ — He Shou Wu @rootandbonesblends nicely in tea lattes, coffee, smoothie bowls or just mixed with hot water. (See previous post idea)⠀ — Dang gui and Bai shao are a classical pair to benefit both Blood and Qi- they are shining stars of the our Herb Folk Broth Herb kits ⠀ — Locally grown Da zao from the #liliuminitiative is in the house at Herb Folk, what, what! ⠀ — Shu Di is rich and cloying so we prefer to take it in formula tinctures like @griffobotanicals No.6 and No.8 ⠀ ⠀ Caution: Stop taking tonic herbs during cold, flu and acute sickness. Tonic herbs also strengthen pathogens. With auto immune disease- consult with doctor and trained herbalist.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #herbfolkcommunitymedicine #hfcm
