Folklore and History Of Sheng Di Huang  also known as Rehmannia Root

Rehmannia, also known as Sheng Di huang in Chinese, was first mentioned in ancient Chinese medical texts during the Han Dynasty. Its Chinese name translates to "Big Yellow" or "Fresh Yellow Earth". The species is called "glutinosa" due to its sticky and sweet nature, which is believed to help calm and settle Qi energy, allowing it to flow smoothly. To prepare Rehmannia root in traditional Chinese medicine, it is typically steamed ten times and sun-dried nine times. In TCM, it is often further steamed in wine until it turns black and moist, and it is used to stop bleeding when charred. Rehmannia is also referred to as "the kidney's own food" and has been traditionally used as a tonic for the kidneys and overall health and well-being.
