TIAN MA GOU TENG YIN Dosage and Administration

Tablets: 6 tablets 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals. Or as prescribed.

Granules: 2-4 grams, taken 2-3 times a day, best on an empty stomach

Whole Herbs: Pre-boil Shi Jue Ming for 40 minutes before adding other herbs. Using a container made of ceramic, glass, or stainless steel (no aluminum, iron or copper) boil 1 packet of herbs in 2-quarts of water or until 2 cups of medicine remain. Strain herbs; save and refrigerate for a second boiling. Drink 1 cup in the AM. And 1 cup in the PM. If desired, repeat the following day, using the saved herbs from the refrigerator.

Tips on Boiling Chinese Herbal Decoctions

Commonly, Chinese herbs are boiled for 20 - 60 minutes, however in this formula, the Shi Jue Ming is a shell and should be boiled longer.  Use the pot lid to regulate the amount of water evaporation, being careful not to boil out all the water.  Herbs that have been 'burned' should be discarded.

Boiling times are determined by the composition of the formula. Flower and leaf will yield medicine in 5 -20 minutes. Branches take 10-30 minuted. Roots take 30 to 60 minutes; Shells,  minerals, and expensive roots like ginseng,  should be slow boiled for 40-60 minutes before other herb are added to the boiling liquid. A few herbs which contain volatile oils, like mint or tangerine peel, must be quick-boiled for only 1-5 minutes to retain these constituents, so these herbs are added to the boiling mixture just prior to completion. There are a number of herbs, like tree saps, that are dissolved in the strained decoction and are not boiled.

How to Drink Your Herbs

The potent tastes and odors of Chinese herbs are well known. If you find the odor too strong (for you or for those who live with you), ventilate the kitchen with a fan while boiling the herbs.  If you find the taste unpleasant, be sure to hold your nose while drinking the herbs.  Chewing raisins or something sweet immediately after drinking the herbs will generally eliminate aftertastes.
