You may use tea to solve some of your health problems. Followings are some of folk tips (Folk medicine tips) used by Chinese in China for years and years.

The tips may or may not replace your professional treatments. You may try it if you have no time to visit your doctor, have no money to go to him, or if he fails to help you with chemical drugs, or the professional treatments have caused side effects that you cannot tolerate any longer, or you suffer from the trouble again and again while the biomedical system found nothing wrong in your body.

If there are some herb ingredients in the formula and you cannot find it by yourself, welcome to come and check with us, see if we can help you to get it.

It is well known among Chinese that some tips work even much better than doctor's prescription. A good TCM doctor does not and should not refuse to use such “simple” tip for his patients.

There are so many mysteries around us, even if modern science has tried so hard to understand it.
