(NaturalNews) Wild Asparagus Root (Tian Men Dong) is called Shatavri in India. It is used as a natural antidepressant, a superb woman's herb, a tonic for sexual energy (in women and men), and a tonic for wisdom via the energy of the lungs. It is taken by men or women for many things but it does have a truly great and special effect on women as you will read below.
As A Natural Antidepressant:
You can take a few droppers full of the tincture or just eat a piece of the sweet chewy raw root right before bed and obtain a very good sleep with wonderful peaceful thoughts just before falling asleep.
Scientifically there must be a center in the brain where these kinds of thoughts and feelings are stimulated but it is not originated in the brain. It is a feeling generated mostly in the lungs (See below) then transformed into thoughts.
Throughout life, we all have bad experiences. When the lung energy is strong, we can pass through these experiences and then let them go. Wild Asparagus is unsurpassed by any other herb in this ability to let go of the bad things of life, emotional waste, and in allowing us to expand our view of life with each passing day.
In short, Tian Men Dong increases the lung's ability to extract what the Chinese call "Heaven Qi" from the air we breath and helps to bring us peace through God's plan of breathing for our lives on earth.
As An Excellent Herb For Women:
Tian Men Dong translates into "she who has a 1000 husbands" and is said to give a woman the reproductive strength to have 1000 husbands!
Shatavri (Tien Men Dong) has been used in India for thousands of years as a rejuvenating tonic for the female system. Through all generations, daughters, mothers, and grandmothers, Shatavri helps to balance a woman during the cycles through her life. This amazing root provides soothing, restorative relief from PMS, menstrual and menopausal imbalances and helps to tone and strengthen her reproductive system. Shatavri works well with dong quai, wild yam and Vitex berries for this.
Long term use of Tian Men Dong will also help make one's skin beautiful. As the lung and kidney function are improved by the herb your body will then feed the moisture to your skin in perfect balance.
It is also used with great success to strengthen the sexual functions in women and men and is used in many women's sexual tonics designed to overcome frigidity on the physical level. The Tincture of Tian Men Dong combined with He Shou Wu has a very good effect on this. Many Chinese women consider Tian Men Dong a powerful sexual stimulant.
As A Lung and "Wisdom" Tonic:
The Chinese say that "wisdom comes from the lungs." It becomes clear to see why they believe that wild Asparagus root aids in the development of wisdom.
Throughout life our bad experiences become valuable lessons. The Lung function, as it affects our psyche, allows a person to extract the truth and wisdom out of life's experiences. It also allows us to let go of that which is useless and of no lasting value. From this we can gain lasting wisdom!
Remember, as a major lung tonic (and kidney tonic) it will make your skin beautiful as the lungs along with good kidney function feed the moisture to your skin in perfect balance.
For improving the lung function this powerful tonic herb combines very well with Schizandrae (Wu Whi Zhi) and Siberian Ginseng.(Ci Wu Jia)
As A Kidney Yin/Jing Sexual Tonic:
Tian Men Dong used by itself can be quite an effective sexual tonic for men or women but it combines well with wolfberries. It can be used as such to balance and enhance the strong Yang effects from taking powerful sexual tonic herbs such as Epimedium. (Horny Goat Weed) This eliminates the headaches some get from Epimedium yet enhances its powerful sexual energy.
With all these great reasons to take Tian Men Dong it is amazing that more studies have not been done on it. (Or maybe they have been and they are sort of "sweeping it under the rug.") In the few studies that have taken place they have proven that Tian Men Dong root can induce interferon production in human beings! That is an amazing discovery when you consider that it is hardly ever mentioned.

Chris Gussa: "Plant Cures is currently working with over 9,000 medicinal plants to bring about healing through the true science of combining the whole energies of whole plants. A plants energy is from its whole part. (flowers, fruit, leaves, stems, roots etc) While the "science" of seeing some of the isolated molecular constituents in food and herbs can be interesting at times, there is no "one magic ingredient" in any plant. (You would think it would be science trying to tell you this type of logic, instead of me) But no! They would rather play this childish game of trying to find the "Pot of gold" in a plant so they can synthesize it and dazzle the FDA with a "New Drug" that will most likely cause the usual death and destruction!
