Black Face General – A Wonder Anti-Cancer Herb; Good For Treating Gallstones, Kidney Stones, Constipation, Body Detoxification & Heatiness, Hepatitis…

Strobilanthes Crispus, Black Face General, Pecah Beling Plant

Hi there, dear friends πŸ˜€

I first heard of this Hak Min Jeong Guan (“Black Face General” in the Cantonese dialect) many years ago when a friend of mine took this herb regularly as a cancer-prevention measure when both her parents passed away from cancer within one year.Β  This plant’s scientific name is “Strobilanthes Crispus”, in Malay it’s “Pecah Beling”, “Keji Beling” in Indonesia and “Hei Mian Jiang Jun” in Mandarin.

My lady healer friend gave me a small plant to grow and it took me about 2 years to grow it into a healthy bush in my limited garden space beforeΒ  I was able to harvest and boil this herb regularly for my family to drink.Β 

The recipe is really easy – just fill up a large pot with the Hak Min Jeong Guan (HMJG) leaves (I used the stems also), 4 dried Buddha Fruits or Loh Hon Guo (the fruits are good for lungs and are naturally sweet), water and boil over a low fire for 2 hours. When cooled , store in the fridge and drink a cup daily over the next few days.

Other than primarily being used as an anti-cancer herb, the HMJG is also very high in anti-oxidants, has phenolic compounds to treat kidney stones, and is good for treating kidney diseases and gallstones, as found in clinical studies.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this herb is a diuretic with laxative qualities to purge kidney stones, is anti-diabetic, and can counter body heatiness as well as detoxify the body.

I remember at one time when my family had Korean BBQ for dinner, drinking a cup of this HMJG brew was able to get rid my headache (due to the heatiness of the food consumed) in just half an hour.Β  So, it is good to have some of this herbal drink ready in your fridge whenever your family have some heaty foods, or drink this as for health maintenance every 2 weeks or once a month. πŸ’‘

    P.S. Another way to take this herb is to blend 3 pieces of the leaves with a green apple and drink that in the morning. πŸ’‘

      I forgot to mention that one of the reasons believed to be behind the strange “Black Face General” name of this herb is because when the drink is brewed…the water turns black, and yet the leaves remain hardy and dark green. :idea

      Hi there, dear Ari πŸ˜€

      The Black Face General plant has dark green, large and hard leaves. The Sabah Snake Grass (SSG) has slimmer, smaller and light green leaves. Here is a link with some information and pictures of the SSG ===>

      Sabah Snake Grass (CLINACANTHUS NUTANS)

      I recently got s few cuttings of the SSG and they are starting to grow. The SSG grass if more effective for Cancer treatment and prevention if one takes it regularly. I read that some people with Stage 4 cancer takes about 500 leaves of SSG a day.

      Hi there, dear PandaMun πŸ˜€

      I have seen a few Chinese Medicine Shops in Section 17 (same row as 7-11) and in PJ Old Town (across the Dim Sum restaurant) selling tea-bag form of Misai Kucing and the Hak Min Jeong Kuan (look for Pecah Beling Tea).

      I bought my baby Misai Kucing plant from a stall located in the centre of the ground floor, Taman Tun Dr Ismail pasar. I read from the Internet that in the SS2 morning market, at one end of the stalls, there is a lady selling herbal plants, so you may like to check out that place, too. πŸ’‘

      Now, I have just planted Sabah Snake Grass and Mulberry plant from stem cuttings – still waiting for them to grow. I will post about them shortly.

        Hi there, dear PandaMun πŸ˜€

        This plant is very easy to take care and grows best in the ground. Needs sunlight and water like usual in the weather here – twice a day on hot days, once on cloudy days. We have to trim the plants often because if it grows into a big bush, white mould will grow on the underside of the leave. πŸ˜‰

      Hi there, dear Pinky πŸ˜€

      Gallstones are formed in the liver/hepatic ducts and gallbladder. Kidney stones are formed in the kidney. Although I read that this herb is good for kidney stones, I have not had any experience with that. 😳

      Hi there, midori πŸ˜€

      I afraid I don’t know where you can get this herb in Hong Kong. 😳 I am in Malaysia. However, I have been told that taking 1 tablespoon of Organic Apple Cider with a cup of water (add a little honey if it is too sour for you) three times a day is good for eliminating kidney stones.

      Good Luck!

      Hi there, Kayla πŸ˜€

      I am sorry I don’t know where you can buy black face general herb in Saskatoon. 😦 I am in Malaysia.

      Perhaps, you can consult a Chinese Physician in the nearest Chinatown? There is traditional Chinese medicine that can be taken to break down the gallstones to be passed out normally.

      I am not sure if you can try doing the gallbladder flush due to the size of your stone.

      Good Luck!
