In the thick black roots of Rehmannia, traditional Chines Medical Doctors see a strong reservoir of nutrients beneficial to the kidneys and blood, and capable of removing heat and inflammation.

It can be used in the treatment of deficiency diseases where the presence of heat (look for a red tongue) causes symptoms such as fever, menopausal hot flashes, and thirst.

Rehmannia can be used when there is a need to generate fluids—especially with the weakness that results from prolonged low-grade fevers–and with hormonal related deficiencies of fluid as found in Sjorgren’s syndromes and dry eyes.
