How to Dose and Prepare ZHI ZI CHI TANG

Granules: 2-4 grams, taken 2-3 times a day, best on an empty stomach.  Or as prescribed by your practitioner.

Whole Herbs: Using a container made of ceramic, glass, or stainless steel (no aluminum, iron or copper) boil 1 packet of herbs in 1-2-quarts (or liters) of water  until 2 cups of medicine remain. Adjust lid and heat to control evaporation. Strain herbs; save and refrigerate the dregs for a second boiling (if desired).

Note that some minerals and shells are pre boiled, some flowers are added during the last 5 minutes of boiling, and some prepared powders are not cooked, but are added to the strained decoction.   

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.  Or as prescribed by your practitioner.  

Pills: Not available at this time.
