Chinese Herbs and Remedies…

I love Chinese herbs and Chinese herbal medicine (and of course I love Chinese food, too!) but as of late have had a very hard time with either using or recommending Chinese herbs mostly because of one thing:

Herbal TOXICITY!…
It seems every time you turn around there is someone reporting on the all the toxic things in Chinese products… Unfortunately these bad practices have spilled over to other industries such as medicines and even Chinese herbs.

It is not uncommon to assay a Chinese herbal product and find many questionable things,.. including…

PHARMACEUTICALS!.. YES, it’s TRUE!..
Pharmaceuticals were found in several herbal products and even aired on television (that’s where I saw it). Counterfeiting of everything from handbags to gym shoes is a HUGE problem in China, including the making of counterfeit Viagra, as well as some life-saving medicines people desperately need to survive – some of them even died!

For the time being I’ll only recommend NSP Chinese Herbs. There are a couple others I’m looking at, but with NSP at least you can always be sure of the quality even though they are a bit pricey… But, hey… ya’ get what ‘ya pay for!

When I can find a source I feel good about recommending, I’ll let you guys know… In the meantime time go see my Chinese Dr friend – Dr Bob Dorris. He knows Chinese medicine and is a Certified Acupuncturist. You can find him at www.natural-health-remedies.net. Tell him Lee sent you.
