The dosage of each ingredient in Red Pine formulas is doubled from standard textbooks, so that one packet of our herbs should last twice as long. Normally in the West, one packet of herbs will last two days. Thus, one of Red Pine's packets will generally last four days. However, depending on the individual circumstances of the patient, the practitioner may choose to prescribe one packet for more or less time.  For example, in acute external attacks, a larger dose is often necessary and a packet may be prescribed over 2 days. 

On the back of each packet of herbs, there is a space for the practitioner to write in how many days the decoction should be consumed over. If you have any questions about individual formula dosages, please feel free to email us.
