Wild asparagus root is a herb both used spiritually and physically. This isn’t just your run of the mill Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) that you grow in your vegetable garden. It’s actually a wild type of asparagus (Asparagus cochinchinensis) related to the common asparagus you typically find in your local grocery store or that you may grow yourself. This special herb has been grown for its medicinal qualities in China for over 2000 years and it’s much different. Rather than the aerial spear used in various cuisines, the root is specially prepared and used as a natural herbal medicine. In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) it’s called “Tian Men Dong” which translates as Heavenly Spirit Root (or lush winter aerial plant).
