Ancient Chinese Materia Medica

Post by Naudia Threng »

Merry meet! I'm quite interested in the ancient Chinese art of herbal remedies through decoction, tea, tong ren, liniments, etc. I already dabble a bit in tea and decoction and grow my own herbs, but i wanted to be more in depth. I've seen many people on here that appear to know a least something of Asian culture, so i thought i'd ask for tips, recipes, websites, books, people, plants, etc.

Well firstly asian culture doesn't make sense. Asia is a huge continent and within that continent are numerous countries with a plethora of traditions and methods specific down to the city/province.

So when you say "asian culture" please be more specific. We are not a homogenous clump.

I'm not chinese, but have you looked into your nearest "Chinatown" to ask the shop owners concerning Chinese traditional medicine?

Well, I meant Chinese as an example. I did t realize that I put it in the topic. I'll change that asap. I meant general Asian culture. And I actually don't have a by Chinatown sadly. I do however, have an Asian culture market, but the owner is from Kentucky and bought it from his friend. I asked and he doesn't know anything about that kind of thing.

Both of those you tube sites are great for herbal info, though not all about Chinese medicine, they do touch on some here and there.

See https://reddit.com/r/TCM/
The book by Penelope Ody - The Complete Medicinal Herbal has some good info very short on both China and India.
For seeds https://richters.com they are in Canada.
