Make sure to work with a good herbalist or Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner to find the exact combination of herbs along with Wu Yao that will work best for any particular set of health challenges.

And as with all herbs, not all herbs work for every person, just like some antibiotics and anti-depression medications don’t work for everyone. So it’s important to try different herbs to find out exactly what works for a particular individual. We are all different, and that means we have different bodies, and those differences must be taken into account when working with any kind of healing agent.

Plus all herbs should only be taken for 7 to 10 days, and then take a break, and then if needed come back and taken another round of natural treatment. It’s important to keep our livers healthy, because everything we eat, drink does have an impact on our liver. And our liver is our first line of defense for preventing disease. It’s all about keeping everything in balance… the yin and the yang.
