A family doctor in the city of Chengdu in southwest China is trying to convince his patients that Chinese herbs are the real cure for flu.
In a recent series of articles, he told the Beijing Evening News that his patients have been given three kinds of herbal medicine to try out.
The first is an herbal version of the common cold, called dianjing, which contains two ingredients: water and barley starch.
Then there’s a more potent version called shujia, a combination of barley and wheat flour.
Shujia is said to reduce the severity of colds.
“I do not use the dianjiang medicine, and I do not recommend it to anybody,” said Dr. Li Yiming, a homeopath and one of the two homeopaths in Chengdu.
Chinese herbs are being widely used to treat a number of diseases, including tuberculosis, tuberculosis, malaria and influenza.
However, a recent survey by the World Health Organization showed that just 3 percent of Chinese adults are taking Chinese herbal medicine.
To be sure, some people say they have been able to control flu by taking some Chinese herbal medicines, and some people are using them to treat respiratory ailments, but most people do not take any Chinese herbs for flu and many are not taking them.
While Chinese herbal products are being used to try and treat the flu, there are still concerns about how effective they are at treating other illnesses.
For example, Dr. Yimings said there is not enough evidence that Chinese herbal drugs reduce the flu severity.
And some Chinese health officials worry that the Chinese herbs may not be safe for the general population, and may have negative side effects.
As a homeopathic physician, Dr.’s Yimingham has tried to be careful about what he prescribes, and he says he tries to give patients the best treatment he can.
He told The Jerusalem Times that he believes Chinese herbs do work as long as the herbs are taken correctly.
If you want to take Chinese herbal supplements, you need to take them correctly, he said.
Dr. Yipin, the Beijing herbalist, says he thinks there is no evidence that any Chinese herbal product can help people with flu.
However, he says it is important to remember that the effectiveness of Chinese herbs is very much dependent on the type of illness.
China has been experiencing an acute pandemic, the deadliest in history, with at least 7,000 people dying of the flu in the past month.
This is the fourth pandemic since the introduction of the vaccine in 1968.
A report by the International Monetary Fund, released last week, warned that the pandemic could have a huge impact on the global economy.
