The boys are trying out chinese medicine

My boys are so prone to flu & cough that many friends advised me to bring them to see chinese physician and let them try "zhong yao" (chinese medicine).

I happened to go to this medicine hall at Rivervale Plaza to stock up the milk powder for Amos. One of the staff there happened to be a chinese physician. He checked Amos' pulse and asked me if Amos is someone who pespire very little. Its true, Amos doesn't sweat as much compared to Zac. He examined the boys & concluded that Amos has a weak lung & Zac's "zhong qi bu zhu".
He wrote the prescription for me & instructed me to pass this to any medicine hall when I'm ready to let the boys try the chinese medicine. I thought since I'm already there as well get from his shop. According to the physician, the boy's body will be significantly improved after consuming the prescribed herbs daily for abt 1.5 mths. Just a tiny scoop to be added to milk powder for the boys to consume. It cost S$229 for the 2 bottles.

The boys started taking it yesterday. Zac realized the slight bitter taste in his fresh milk but still finished it cos I told him the mixture will make him stronger :):)

Let's see if it works after 1.5 mths ... ... ;)

Hope they fully recover from flu and cough real soon!

WaveSurfer said...

I'm impressed by the Chinese Physician. Accurate diagnosis and also he was generous to provide you with the prescription without forcing you to buy them from his shop. ^^

The medicine sounds expensive, but as long as it works well for your boys, it will definitely be worth it.

Like the way you encourage your kids to bring the bitter medicine by saying that 'it will make them strong'. They will sure swallow the bitterness upon hearing that. Which boy doesn't want to grow up strong? ^^

Agnes said...

Hope they will fully recover after taking the medicine!

Mariuca said...

You're such a good mommy la Janice, ur boys must love u very much for always thinking of them! :):):)

chinese medicine is better than western as it strengthens and cures any illness at its roots rather than just suppressing the symptoms.

the only bad point is, it takes quite sometime to see the effects of TCM

Amel's Realm said...

Yep, I also hope the boys' conditions will improve within the appointed time! :-D
