Does Ba Zhen soup help with conception?
My mom knows I am trying to conceive and always gives me tonic food. Lately she’s been giving me ba zhen soup claiming it helps to nourish qi and blood. Does it really help with conception?
CheckCheckCin: Ba Zhen soup is a Chinese medicine recipe combining 8 different medicinal herbs inside and it is mainly used to replenish qi and blood. For those with asthenic weak bodies, it is beneficial. If you have symptoms such as aversion to cold, cold limbs, pale complexion, shortness of breath, and dizziness, you can have this under practitioner advice after your period. If you do not have qi deficient or blood asthenia body types, but have a busy work life, irritability, asthenic weak spleen and stomach or are having the flu, ba zhen soup may worsen your condition leading to heat related symptoms such as dry mouth and tongue, acne, canker sores, and even abdominal bloating and diarrhea. It is important to seek advice from a practitioner to find proper treatment based on your body condition.
