The history of chinese herbal medicine pdf

Before the appearance of modern contraceptive medicines and technologies, how did women of ancient China prevent unwanted pregnancies?
It is believed that rubbing musk into navel can prevent pregnancy. According to historical records, Zhao Feiyan and Zhao Hede, two beautiful concubines in the court of Emperor Cheng (51 BC -7 BC) of the Western Han Dynasty, controlled their fertility by rubbing musk into their navels.
According to folk records, the method of using saffron to prevent pregnancy was from imperial physicians. Ancient condoms made of sheep intestines and fish lungs can be found in the ancient classic work Classics of Mountains and Seas. In ancient China, women were were encouraged to drink hot mercury to prevent being pregnant.
A Chinese folk birth control treatment is like this: Grind seven dried persimmon pedicels, put the powder dip in boiling water and drink the mixture for seven days. Strychnine arsenic and other toxic drugs were also used to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Large doses of these drugs can cause deaths, but the use of small doses can kill the unborn fetus. Rhythm method was also used in ancient China and women also inserted sponges into vagina to avoid pregnancy.
I love Mandarins, and heres why in my latest Blog; read the low down on the health benefits of the essential oils, fruit and some simple recipe tips. Its the perfect weather to go for a walk, garden, sunbake, pick mandarins and generally enjoy the special winters that we experience here.
The essential oil of Mandarin is really attractive to me, I love the aroma and the oil is extracted from the skin of the mandarin which isn’t very tasty.
Add a drop of the essential oil to your cooking right at the point of serving and you have a really aromatic eating experience.


The fruit o f mandarin is like many citrus fruits high in Vitamin C, Our super antioxidant for winter.

It is said musk was an ingredient of the soup. However, it is difficult to know other ingredients in the decoction. If emperor had no desire to procreate, after having sex with concubines or court ladies, he would order eunuch to clean out their vagina with saffron herbal soup. Mandarins are the perfect winter fruit for juices as they are high in nutrients and some great antioxidant and antimicrobial actives.
The oil contains are alpha thujone, alpha pinene, beta pinene, camphene, citral, citronellal, gamma terpinolene, geranial, geraniol, limonene, linalool, methyl methylanthranilate, myrcene, nerol, sabinene and terpineol. The advantage of mandarin is that they are high in valuable sources of flavonoid anti-oxidants like narigenin, hesperetin, vitamin A, carotenes, xanthins and luteins.
However I heat it often in foods and will even boil it with sugar to reduce for a sweet sauce.


Add a mandarin to your winter health care regime and experiment and use generously in your recipes. Make a big pot of your favorite herb tea and add one cup of warm mandarin juice for extra taste.
Add a cup of hot mandarin juice with equal parts either fresh cream or coconut cream to your pot of soup.
In simple terms this means that mandarin is extremely potent as an antimicrobial and can be used in topical skin applications such as creams and balms and in baths as a divine oil.
Mandarin, tomatoe, onion, fresh mint with a simple honey and lemon juice dressing is a great winter salad and vitamin C hit. Just replace the liquid in the recipe with mandarin juice for a seasonal taste and health sensation. I am just juicing it and drinking it through the day, or I will add the juice to soups and cooking. We add the oil to our Calendula Herbal skin balm and nectar because it sits at the site of a potential infection and just waits its time out to kill the invader on impact.
