The Medicinal Herb Info site was created to help educate visitors about the often forgotten wisdom of the old ways of treating illnesses. Many of today's drugs and medicines were originally derived from natural ingredients, combinations of plants and other items found in nature.

We are not suggesting that you ignore the help of trained medical professionals, simply that you have additional options available for treating illnesses. Often the most effective treatment involves a responsible blend of both modern and traditional treatments.

We wish you peace and health!

Chinese Formula #4

Simple laxative formula
Rhubarb root (3-6 gms)
Ginger root (1-2 gms)
Licorice root (1-2 gms)
Cascara sagrada may be substituted for the rhubarb if liver stagnation, digestive weakness and general debility are present, since it is more tonic with Western sense than rhubarb.
