Nuherbs Lab Tested Ban Lan Gen is cut into small pieces. The pieces can be used to make an extract, or a decoction. If making an extract from the Ban Lan Gen be sure to use an alcohol which is at least 18% by Volume. Though I have read that some extract require 100% by volume*.*Information from Wikipedia.org states that Alcohol by volume (abbreviated as ABV, abv, or alc/vol) is a standard measure of how much alcohol (ethanol) is contained in a given volume of an alcoholic beverage (expressed as a volume percent).
Traditional Chinese Herbs
Chinese Traditional herbs should be regarded as an added feature to modern western healthcare, and not as a replacement. Chinese traditional herbs (Teas) emphasize harmony, and balance.
ReviewsSage MoonThis is another herb that is hard to come by. It is essential in my work with Lyme & Co. High Quality, good price, fast shipping. I will be back. Thank you.Jason
MedicineI'm not a TCM practitioner. I used Isatis to reduce COVID symptoms when they started worsening at day 30. I never drank more than 6 grams in a day (boiled 30 min as tea). The more I drank, the more the symptoms disappeared, to a point. I couldn't get the COVID symptoms to disappear with it entirely, but I had positive effects every time I drank it. The smell and taste are a bit rough, but survival is what it is. It seems to have halted my COVID progression (reversed course of disease). I am slowly recovering at day 45, fever broke 4 days ago. The head space was uncomfortable for me, so I suggest tapering up instead of all at once if you have the same effects. I used this in conjunction with MANY other treatments, but this is what appears to have reversed the course of my disease.Teresa L.
