Use one packet of herbs at a time
Adjust the amount of water put in if there is too much liquid or too little at the end of cooking.
Stop taking herbs if you develop any of the following symptoms: fever, flu like symptoms, abdominal pain, persistent nausea or diarrhoea, vomiting. Once symptoms have eased you can slowly reintroduce herbs. Two or three slices of fresh ginger can be added to help ease digestive issues.
Castor Oil Packs
Castor oil packs can be used over the uterus or liver to help with fertility. Using it over the uterus can help detox old stagnant tissue. Using it over the liver can help regulate hormones and keep liver healthy. This is important as the liver is very important in Chinese medicine.
