Bai He Di Huang Tang

Lily Bulb and Rehmannia Decoction

Source: Essentials from the Golden Cabinet (c. 220)

Ingredients for 1 bulk herb vacuum sealed bag: 

Bai He (Lilii Bulbus) 45g
Sheng Di Huang (Rehmanniae Radix)         45g

Suggested dose: 1 bag over 2-4 days. The above dosage is doubled from the original source.

The above formula has been slightly modified to suit modern clinical practice in the United States. For example the source text advises to wash 7 bulbs of Bai He, soak them overnight until white bubbles come out. The water is then discarded before decocting them down until half the liquid has evaporated. The dregs are then discarded and one cup of juice from Sheng Di Huang is added. This process is not followed in the above formula.
