Nei Bu Wan Inner Tonification Pill

Fu Zi – from the Learning Garden Venice (ours is from China)

This is a strong formula for tonifying (increasing) kidney Qi. It is used for those who feel cold and may be older, have congenital issues or otherwise recovering from a illness. It contains Fu Zi which is used to warm the entire body (not just the hands and feet). A person who needs this will be tired or tired and agitated. It is often used for continual vaginal discharge that is white (not yellow) or urinary incontinence. This formula is not to be taken lightly and my preference is that you should take this only if recommended by a qualified herbalist.

  • Nourishes Kidney Jing
  • Astringes the Lower Jiao

Atractylodes and Dioscorea Combination (Wan Dai Tang)

Details of Atractylodes and Dioscorea Combination
picture of shan yao herb

Shan yao is a Chinese yam supports the respiratory, digestive, and excretory systems.

A triple-action recipe to help you hit that sweet spot between too wet and too dry.

Action 1: supports efficient digestion which is the first step in healthy fluid metabolism (leading to a discharge-free day!)

Action 2: regulates the enteric nervous system in support of healthy digestion and fluid metabolism. This targets the stress-induced aspect of vaginal discharge.
