Yes thats true PD Ive heard the same thing. This chinese doctor checked my pulse before he told me what I needed and the way he did it was different from how doctors here in the U.S. check it.
Apparently he was trained by the chinese old way of medicine as was very adept at telling me what was wrong and what I needed.
He really listened to me too and sat with me for about 1/2 an hour just discussing various things. Although like all practicioners he of course needs to make an income but I could tell was definitely genuinly interested in my well being. He was not pushy about selling me something and just took his time evaluating my condition.
At that store they also have some great green tea that he encourged me to try(he had some already made and let me try it) that was stronger than any I found so far at the health food store and better quality.
He sold me a special glass tea pot that I think sells for about $15 and strains the tea inside of it, so you just put the loose tea in it and then pour in the hot water, let it simmer and its ready to drink.
The label on the bottle of red man root lists the ingredients so I will put them on here although I dont recognize all of them, here goes,
Dried Seal extract,red man root extract,Rehmannia root extract,Asparagus root extract,Tang kuei root extract,Peony root extract,Grains of paradise extract,Schisandra fruit extract,Oyster shell extract,Atracylodes root extract,Lotus stamens extract,Teasel root extract,Angelica root extract,Eucommia bark extract.
And the title on the bottle says nutritional support for healthy kidney function. It stresses that its important to be consistant in taking it everyday. I just took some right now as a matter of fact. God bless
