Pearl of the Mountain - Ziziphus Kernel

Wild jujube kernel is the kernel of wild jujube. You need to peel off the jujube flesh and break the hard core to get it. Most of the finished jujube kernels are lightly fried, and can also be further processed into jujube kernel powder for easy consumption. Li Shizhen of the Ming Dynasty described Ziziphus jujube kernel in the "Compendium of Materia Medica" as follows: "When used properly, it can treat symptoms of gallbladder, insomnia, polydipsia, and sweating." Ziziphus jujube is sour, sweet and flat, and enters the heart, liver and gallbladder meridian. It can nourish heart yin and nourish liver blood. It mainly has the effects of nourishing the liver, calming the heart, calming the nerves and controlling sweat. Because the mind is responsible for sleep, jujube kernels can nourish the mind and calm the mind by astringing the mind.

The main function is to treat insomnia. Traditional Chinese medicine divides insomnia into four categories:
1. Deficiency of the heart and spleen: The main symptoms are insomnia accompanied by dizziness, fatigue and forgetfulness. Taking Suanzaoren plus Guipi Decoction can effectively relieve this type of insomnia.
2. Heart-kidney disharmony: The main symptoms are insomnia accompanied by dry mouth, irritability, and red tongue. Patients can take Suanzaoren plus Liuwei Dihuang Pills and Jiaotai Pills for treatment.
3. Liver fire disturbing the heart: The main symptoms are insomnia accompanied by irritability, dry mouth, and rib pain. In this case, it is necessary to take medicine to relieve liver fire. We recommend Zizioren plus Danzhi Xiaoyao Pills. In terms of dietary therapy, you can drink "Liver-Soothing Date Seed Tea". Grind the Seed Seed Seed into powder and soak it in water with Albizia Julibrissin flowers and roses for drinking.
4. Improper diet: The main symptoms are bloating, stomach pain, and belching. It is mainly caused by irregular diet and poor spleen and stomach. It is recommended to take Ziziphus Seed plus gastrointestinal medicine as a treatment method. You can also eat "Sour Date Kernel Porridge".

People with excess fire, stagnation of heat in the body, and diarrhea are not suitable to take jujube kernels.
