Medicinal Herbs - Apr 3

Had opportunity to visit a Chinese Herb Market. It was a wholesale market specializing in medicinal herbs. I know I was glad I could not identify all the items – even when I was told what was in front of me. Chinese medicine often calls for a number of ingredients to be put into water, boiled, then stored in jar to take regularly – like tea 3 x a days. Ingredients included things like snakes, caterpillars, turtles, mudbug shells, bones and various other animal parts – including a few human to the best of my understanding. (David and Jorge would have enjoyed this experience!).
