Primary Functions
Nourish Heart blood, pacify Shen, benefits Yin

Zizyphus is one of the most commonly used herbs in Chinese herbalism. It is the quintessential tranquilizing herbal substance. Being neutral in energy and mild in nature, it is the most commonly used lead herb in sedative formulas designed to help relax the mind and induce sound sleep. It is especially useful for people who are experiencing restless sleep with excessive, vivid dreams and/or nightmares.

It is categorized as a heart-blood tonic, therefore directly calming the heart, which is the seat of Shen and which determines our emotional stability. This is a very good herb for women who suffer insomnia due to a slight or profound anemic condition. It may be combined with Dang Gui, White Peony and Polygonum to build heart blood.

For simple, occasional insomnia due to stress or over-thinking, Zizyphus may be brewed simply by itself, or it may also be brewed as a tea with other Shen stabilizing herbs such as Polygonum stem, Spirit Poria and/or Ganoderma and consumed at bedtime.

It is used with Biota, Polygonatum Sibericum and/or steamed or raw Rehmannia for insomnia, fright or anxiety caused by deficiency of the Kidney and Yin deficiency with hyperactive Yang.

It can also be used to stop excessive perspiration. In this case it is combined with tonic astringents such as Schizandra, Cornus and Dragon Bone and with Qi tonics such as Codonopsis and/or Astragalus. For spontaneous sweating or night sweating due to weakness (as occurs in people who are exhausted or are infected with a chronic virus), mix Zizyphus with Ginseng, Astragalus and Schizandra.

It also helps the bowels to move. Mixed with Biota, it is both a sedative and a mild laxative.

Primary Combinations
Combine with:

  1. Albizia Bark, Spirit Poria, Polygonum Stem, Dragon Bone and Oyster Shell to stabilize Shen and treat insomnia caused by anxiety
  2. Astragalus, Schizandra and Ginseng as a Heart Qi tonic and to stop night sweating
  3. Biota for insomnia and as a mild laxative

Varieties and Grading
Zizyphus seed is not the seed of the Jujube Date, as many people think. Zizyphus jujube (Chinese Red Date) and Zizyphus spinosa are different species and have different herbal effects. The seed must be roasted to be effective and mild in action. Freshly roasted Zizyphus has a very pleasant aroma.

Do not use when experiencing diarrhea. Zizyphus may cause drowsiness.

Alive & Well's philosophy is based on us as human beings taking care of our health as well as our pets and animals by consuming whole living foods and herbs, and through the use of natural and organic products, doing regular exercise, breathing fresh air, absorbing sunshine and drinking and bathing in good clean spring water, all in the way Yahweh intended us to when He created us and the universe.

On both riverbanks will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not dry up and their fruit will not fail. There will be a different kind of fruit each month because the water flows from the sanctuary so that this fruit will be edible and the leaves will have healing properties." Ezekiel 47:12 CJB. Disclaimer: The Western Medical Field believes that Yahweh, Yeshuah and the Ruach HaKodesh, the Word of Yahweh, food, herbs and frequencies have nothing to do with the health of the body. We believe that Yahweh, Yeshuah and the Ruach HaKodesh, the Word of Yahweh, food, herbs and frequencies all work together to create harmony and health in the human body the way Yahweh intended it to be when He created us and the universe. Since we work with Yahweh, Yeshuah and the Ruach HaKodesh, the Word of Yahweh, food, herbs and frequencies collectively, we certainly are not entering the Western Medical Field and are not practicing Western Medicine. We believe the Western Medical Field is founded on witchcraft and sorcery and therefore separate ourselves from them and will not recommend drugs or their practices and will not replace the prescriber of drugs or their practices.
