How do I take my Chinese herbal medicine?
Taking your Chinese herbal medicine from the Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic is as simple as boiling the kettle. Once the kettle has reached boiling point, half fill a mug with the water. Whilst the water is still freshly boiled, spoon the recommended dosage of the Chinese herbal granules in to the water. Then stir the water vigorously. Since the water is so hot, it is best to wait a few minutes before you drink your herbal medicine.
The Chinese herbal medicine dispensed from the Fertility and IVF Acupuncture Clinic is high quality granulated herbs. This means the herbs will dissolve easily. If you have trouble drinking the herbs, use a mouthwash or fruit juice to rinse your mouth afterwards. Anther method to make the herbs more palatable is to add some honey. If you still have trouble, reduce the amount of water so that you can drink the decoction much faster. In time you, will learn to adjust how you mix your Chinese herbal medicine formulas to best suit you. If you continue to have difficulty let Dr Wilson know. It is also wise to check with Dr Wilson to make sure you are preparing your herbal decoction correctly so as to not alter the efficacy.
