Asparagus root moistens and purifies the lungs, aiding in our breathing, removing toxins from the respiratory tract and improving all respiratory functions. It increases the lung’s ability to extract Qi from the air we breath. Asparagus root is especially useful for those who are exposed to smoke, to dry or smoggy air or who otherwise are experiencing dryness of the lungs and upper respiratory passages.

Taoists emphasize that wild Asparagus root will strike a balance in the internal functions of the body. It is said that one who consumes wild Asparagus root for a long time will feel so light that they can fly. This is not meant to be taken literally, but refers to the spiritual qualities of this amazing herb and also to the energy and natural buoyancy it provides.

really good wild Asparagus root is quite rare. Most wild Asparagus root is yellow and this is excellent, so long as it is clean, moist and sweet. Connoisseurs tend to buy up entire batches of the really good stuff quickly. But occasionally you can find red wild Asparagus root. This is a treasure — it is the herb that the Taoists call “the flying herb”.

Buy as much as you can when you see it, because it probably won’t be there when you go back to the herb shop again.

Do not use this herb if you do not want to have flying dreams. Do not use this herb if you don’t want to become wise.
