Once the diagnosis
was made, a course of treatment was established which included acupuncture,
manipulation and treatment through herbal remedies. Dr. Chang called for
a special formulae which was known in ancient times and is known to this
day, as Ma-Huang-Hsing-Jen-Kan-Tsao-Shih-Kao-Tang. The prescription was

The scenario just described took place 1,800 years ago however little has changed in regard to either diagnosis or treatment with the exception that today, we are blessed with Chinese herbal pharmaceutical laboratories which manufacture the identical formulaes we just outlined, but in tablet form.
The benefits of modern technology preparing the ancient formulaes instead of us concocting the prescriptions ourselves are numerous, from time and difficulty of preparation, to the extremely offensive taste which we in the Western world find so disgusting. However, the most positive attribute to the utilization of Chinese herbs as manufactured by modern laboratories, is that they have absolutely incredibly effective clinical results, the likes of which can only be compared to ancient formulaes prepared by ancient physicians.
We are currently experiencing in the Western world an explosion of popularity of Ancient Chinese Herbal Prescriptions which have proven their merit for close to 2,000 years. Even though there are hundreds of formulae in Asian Healing, the following list are without question some of the most revered, historical and proven Traditional Chinese Medicine formulae in existence.
The manufacturer of these formulae are from the oldest most respected herbal medicine laboratory in the world with over 50 years of supplying all of China, Australia, Japan and the United States. I highly recommend and personally use these herbs. They are as easy to use as simply recognizing the symptomotolgy and recommending the appropriate formulae.
