The triple warmer meridian is responsible for the protection of the body. The triple warmer also communicates information about our physical bodies to our mind and emotions. Aniseseed brings light, life, and perspective to this meridian. The result is love and acceptance of our naturally imperfect physical bodies. This more balanced perspective has a dramatic impact on eating disorders, weight loss, and sexual dysfunction.
Like fennel, aniseseed has estrogenic properties, but its effects are somewhat stronger. Aniseseed is antispasmodic, making it effective for menstrual pain and stomach cramps. Because it is both a bronchial dilator and expectorant, aniseseed is used for asthma and respiratory conditions that include phlegm and mucous. Herbal forms of aniseseed have been used traditionally in many countries to speed labor along and encourage milk production.
