Gui Zhi is a versatile herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Chinese herbalists use Gui Zhi to help with fever symptoms, typically when the patient’s condition doesn’t disappear after sweating, which is a sign that the body’s temperature setpoint has gone back to normal.
Aside from this, Gui Zhi may provide relief for arthritic complaints, especially in the shoulders, due to its function to promote blood circulation. It is also a part of many formulas that treat gynecological conditions.
Only use this product when advised by a qualified TCM professional.
