What is it?:

Cardamom (Elettaria cardomomum, Amomum cardamomum) is the seed of the perennial tropical plant in the ginger (Zingiberaceae) family (aka Bai dou kou in  Chinese herbalism)... It is a drying, aromatic herb that has been used since ancient times to dispel dampness from the digestive tract and addresses a variety of digestive complaints such as:

  • a feeling of heaviness or edema
  • loose stools/diarrhea
  • poor appetite
  • nausea & vomiting
  • acid reflux
  • abdominal distention, gas, bloating, and pain
  • chest fullness or an oppressive sensation in the chest 

Cardamom is also useful to address food stagnation (i.e. food that is poorly digested) and as such is a great herb to use if you have, say, overeaten at a holiday dinner and have indigestion, belching, acid regurgitation, etc...

What is it good for:
  • digestive complaints mainly due to incomplete digestion
  • chest fullness or an oppressive sensation in the chest
  • feelings of heaviness (e.g. in the limbs or extremities)/edema 

What else you might like to know:

It is important to understand that herbs work by restoring balance to the body. This means that you usually have to take an herb or a formula for a longer period of time than you would with pharmaceuticals in order to get results-- usually at least a month, and often times longer than that... it all depends on the individual and the nature of the ailment being addressed.
