Stories of Astragali Radix, or milkvetch root (Huang qi):

Huang means yellow. In ancient China, Qi meant people in their 60’s. A Chinese doctor named Dai Shen in his 60’s.

He died to save a child falling a cliff. After he died, people called the type of plants surrounding his grave as Huang Qi to remember him.

Another story was about Huang Qi. A famous Chinese doctor Xu Yinzong was asked to treat Queen mother who had stroke and couldn’t talk. Dr Xu used a formula with Huang Qi and put boiled Huang Qi tea under Queen’s mother’s bed to smoke her mouth and skin. Next day the Queen’s mother woke up and could talk.
