This Traditional Chinese Soup For Back Pain Recipe 社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯 is perfect for those suffering from nagging chronic back pains. Ideal for Postpartum and those with coccyx pain, weak knees and tender tendons. One of my favourite past times is making Chinese soup. I love the nourishing and medicinal aspect of healing the body from within.
Who Is This Chinese Healing Soup Suitable For?
This Chinese soup for back pain is neutral and suitable for most people. While it carries a subtly bitter taste from Codonopsis Pilosula (aka poor man's ginseng), it is still easy to drink.
The soup colour has a dark colour from the black bean and Morinda Officinalis / Indian Mulberry.
I do not suggest eating the meat from the pork bones after the soup is ready, unlike those from the Green Radish and Carrot with Pork Bone Soup Recipe 青紅蘿蔔豬骨湯. The meat from this TCM du zhong soup recipe can taste a little bitter after stewed for so long.
Health Benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicinal Herbs List
社仲 Eucommia Ulmoides - Du Zhong benefits enhance bones strength and body muscles, reduce fattiness, enhance energy metabolism and antioxidants
巴戟 Morinda Officinalis / Indian Mulberry - enhances libido because it improves kidney functions. Useful to treat urinary incontinence, female infertility due to cold uterus, pain and numbness because of wind-cold, soreness and weakness of low back and knee, rheumatism, etc.
党参 Codonopsis Pilosula - enhances immunity, dilates blood vessels, lowers blood pressure, improves microcirculation, and enhances hematopoietic function. The hematopoietic function is the process through which the body manufactures blood cells.
淮山 / 山藥 Dioscorea Polystachya – Commonly referred to as Chinese yam, Huai Shan has a sweet, neutral characteristic. Individuals with spleen deficient 脾虚 will find improvements in their digestive system. It promotes urination and inhibits gastric cleansing properties. Huai Shan targets kidney, lung, and spleen channels 腎﹐肺﹐脾. Chinese Yam benefits also help reduce blood sugar and blood pressure, improve antibodies, anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, and improve vitality.
How To Use A Soup Fat Separator
I love using my OXO fat separator! It has a capacity for 4-cup/900mL. Pour the soup into the separator, and watch the fat rise to the top while soup settles to the bottom. The heat resistant strainer catches unwanted bits, and the stopper prevents fat from rising to the top of the spout. Once the soup has settled, remove the strainer and the stopper and pour out perfect clear soup. A shield prevents the gravy from spilling over the top of the separator, instead of through the spout. And it is dishwasher safe! This is the best fat separator I've purchased lately!

A friend shared this post with me. My husband suffers from back pain so I’m excited to try this out. I grew up drinking these herbal soups and have fond memories of my childhood. I never truly appreciated the health benefits back then. Now that I have a family of my own, I’m embarking on a journey to learn more.
In general, how often would you drink this soup? For example, once a day until pain subsides? Herbal soups are medicinal, so I’ve alway wondered about “how much to have”. Thank you!
HI! I hope this would help your husband! We typically drink a bowl or two a day. This is not instant cure but helps relieves back pain!
Would I be able to add red dates in the soup?
Best check with your herbal practitioner if your body type is compatible with this type of soup.
What a great recipe for when the weather's getting colder and body pains kick in! Always like natural remedies whenever possible. I don't know much about making traditional Chinese healing soups though I have tasted them. Thanks for this informative post, Nancy!
i agree! drink this soup regularly to release those back pain and tension trouble spots!

Do I ever need this right now - had a fall and my old back injury flared up. Perfect!
oh no! Hope you feel better soon!
Well, after just wrecking my back a couple of weeks ago, it's serendipitous to stumble across this! Wonderful soup - and I always like an excuse to use dried longans.
Well that's uncanny! I hope you feel better!
I need to make this for my parents! Food can be amazing medicine.
Nature has it's own way of healing us! Just need to know how to utilize it!
What is the white stuff in your ingredients? You did not mention the name actually.
oh thanks for pointing that out. It is Chinese yam 淮山.
