* Currently it is illegal to use bulk Xi Xin in the United States for internal use. Therefore we use a certified aristolic acid free granular version. It is a 5:1 extract and the dosage is adjusted accordingly. It should be dissolved into the strained decoction.
** Sheng Jiang needs to be added by the patient or practitioner. One quarter slice is usually ~ 3 grams.
Suggested dose: 1 bag over 2-4 days. The above dosage is doubled from the original source. Additionally the above formula has been slightly modified to suit modern clinical practice in the United States. Please send us an email if you have any questions about this.
