Traditional Medicines

Traditional Chinese medicine is a school of its own with a profound heritage. Every conceivable variety of drugs, herbal or otherwise, is being used for medical purposes, many of them with amazing curative efficacies. Drugs with a high tonic value are favorites with the Chinese. These include ginseng and its products, snow lotus, Chinese caterpillar fungus, Chinese wolfberries, licorice root, dangshen (Codonopsis pilosula), and the bulbs of fritillary (Fritillaria thunbergii). A wide range of patent drugs prepared according to traditional prescriptions, which are high in curative value and convenient for administration, are available in traditional Chinese pharmacies in China.
