Beware of Chinese Herbs?
This is a surprising question when coming from me, licensed Practitioner legally distributing Chinese Herbs.
Well… recently one of my friend decided to cleanse with Chinese herbs. A patented formula from China (I don't carry patents from China) was promising everything from cleansing your bowel, liver and I think immortality… well I thought, I better examine what is in it! One of ingredients was cinnabar. Cinnabar contains mercury, it can be dangerous and it goes against cleansing.
PLEASE Remember if you consume Chinese herbs prescribed and administered by Licensed and Board certified Chinese Medicine Practitioner you are getting herbs free of chemicals, tested for heavy metals and other pollutants. You are getting quality as well as your herbs are design just for you. 
Chinese Medicine is very powerful and it has to be treated as such.
Check your provincial regulatory body to find out if your practitioner is Board Certified.
For evidence based newest Chinese herbal medicine breakthroughs here is a fascinating info:

This site includes only evidence based research on mainly single Chinese Herbs.
Fantastic news about Magnolia Bark and its antimicrobial properties. This herb's flower is a main ingredients in many different formulas for sore throat, cold, and flu. However it has been recently discovered that the bark of the magnolia tree also used in TCM has anti-depressant like action. 

If you got to the bottom to my e-mail, you deserve a dessert:)
