A Chinese medicine supplement is used in Asia and Europe for stroke rehabilitation. It also bodes well for TBI and Alzheimer's patients. But it is banned by the FDA.

The ingredients, however, are commonly used by Chinese medicine providers in the U.S. So, though the supplement is unavailable here, an equivalent formula can be legally offered by a licensed Chinese medicine practitioner.

Tong Ren Tang is a Chinese medicine company that was founded in 1669 by the Court Physician at the time. It was recently mentioned in Forbes to help dispel the myth that family businesses have limited lifespans.

Of course, the company has evolved much since 1669. But it has endured centuries of shifting trends. Read an abbreviated timeline here: https://www.tongrentangcm.com//en/journey.php

Forbes states a possible reason for the longevity of such companies "lies in the family value and identity that are often beyond short-term profitability."

It's great to see a restaurant promote Chinese medicine with its cocktail menu. This D.C. establishment currently mixes Chinese herbs into their signature drinks.

While this can be a fun and engaging introduction to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), note that combining herbs and alcohol is not necessarily therapeutic; especially if done so indiscriminately.

Cheers!

There are correlates between Chinese medicine and Western science.

Stimulating the kidney system with acupuncture works to improve vitality, energy production and mental-spiritual focus. In Western parlance, this can be attributed to the action of hormones and neurotransmitters; and their healthy transport through the circulatory system and across neuronal synapses.

Combining these perspectives can be an effective way to manage ADHD.

China is using integrative medicine (i.e. anti-retrovirals, plus herbs) to treat HIV. Early clinical trials have yielded positive results, but have not been peer-reviewed by the Western medical community.

Generally, Western reviews of Chinese clinical trials are limited; and there is often skepticism on the methodologies used in Chinese studies.

While critical reviews can benefit from a healthy dose of skepticism, such bias can also lead to blind rejection of otherwise positive outcomes.

With proper monitoring of clinical outcomes, using Chinese medicine in conjunction with anti-retrovirals in HIV treatment remains a viable option in the Western hemisphere.

Note on medicinal mushrooms: If you are consuming mushrooms for medicinal benefit rather than gastronomy, then hot water extraction is essential.

The extraction process breaks down the tough cellular wall of mushrooms, ensuring bioavailability of their medicinal compounds.
