Sheng Hua Tang

This simple formula was created in the 17th century by Fu Qing-Zhu for the purpose of invigorating and transforming blood stasis as well as nourishing the body and protecting from the invasion of external pathogens.
This formula is essential after labour, miscarriage or terminated pregnancies. To explain it simply, this formula cleans out the uterus while keeping it warm and helping to generate new fresh blood.

Making sure that the body is producing enough new blood is essential keeping strong and healthy in general. Keeping the uterus warmed ensures that cold pathogens are not able to invade and cause illness.
Looking at the formula yet another way-it helps to rebalance the hormones.
