About This Item
Dang gui is one of the most popularly used of all Chinese herbal medicines, predominantly renowned for its use in the treatment of a wide variety of gynecological conditions that are generally not easily treated with conventional therapies, such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and infertility. According to executive director of American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, Roy Upton "dang gui is especially important because it fills a therapeutic niche not readily addressed in Western conventional or herbal medicine. It has been used successfully for several hundred years for a broad range of gynecological conditions and can help broaden therapeutic options for women beyond hormone replacement therapies and hysterectomies. Hopefully, increased use of dang gui and its appropriate formulas will help to eliminate at least a portion of the 600,000+ hysterectomies performed annually in America." Like all Chinese herbs, there are many different grades and qualities of dang gui. This monograph provides the information necessary for sourcing high quality material.
