WoW!!!! Thats all I can say because my first visit to a TCM pharmacy was really awesome! Look at that pic! They gave me 5 big piles of these herbs. A special formula prescribed by my TCM doc. When I seen that I thought "Whoa..do I brew it...smoke it...or build a darn campfire with it??? " LMAO.... I know right! Whats in the pic actually boils down to 3 glasses, which is what I drink daily.
My TCM doc actually hands me a script..wrote in chinese!!! I then had to take it to the ONLY TCM pharmacy anywhere in my area. The place was really cool. It had a whole wall filled with shelves of different herbs. No clue what they all were. Then another wall with cubby holes all nicely labeled according to what the pill in the cubby hole did. Like "high blood pressure" Men sex aide, women sex aide, cramps, skin pain..etc..and all boxes and everything for that matter was in chinese..of course. They also had artwork for sale on the walls..chimes..chopsticks...candles..incense..clothing. Anyway, it was a new and very different experience for me.
Wednesday I start brewing my herbs. I am looking forward to this experience as well. I have heard that the herbs are not so tasty....some not so bad. Stay tuned on that. I have also started acupuncture a few weeks back. THAT is amazing to me and a whole other post....which I will share when I have been at it a while longer.
I LOVE the fact that TCM offers me another option to try. I try all the chemo and radiation crap these doctors throw at me and they all suck so I figured why not give this a try too. If it don't work..nothing lost.... if it does..WhooHoo and screw chemo!!!! Time will tell. Ya'll take care.
