Dosage – 3 x 4 tablets daily, children over 3 years of age 3 x 2 tablets daily. Generally, herbs are used in China in a way that children under 4 years of age use one fourth of the adult dose, i.e. 3 x 1 – 2 tablets daily, children from 5 to 12 years take half the adult dose, i.e. 3 x 2 – 4 tablets and adults then 3 x 4 – 8 tablets daily. Otherwise, a dose in China is increased to 2-3 x daily dose in the acute stage of ailments and according to the intensity of health problems, after alleviation of medical conditions it is in turn decreased – everything is always individual! In the event of missed or forgotten single dose, the following dose may be taken in twice the amount (e.g. in case of omitting a morning dose of 4 tablets, at noon 8 tablets may be taken, as well as instead of 3x 4 tablets daily it is possible to take 2 x 6 tablets in the morning and evening, etc.). Tablets should be taken preferably 15 minutes before a meal or 30 minutes after a meal (it does not necessarily mean to be replete!) and then in several ways:
- Simply by swallowing whole tablets and washing down with clean water.
- First we crush tablets to powder (e.g. in a mortar), pour over in a glass with 2 dl of hot water, stir, and drink warm (like hot coffee, but in this case also with the “herbal grounds”). This method is also the most effective!
- For some children, the following method has proven: we crush tablets to powder and add them to tea, which we sweeten e.g. with Sladěnka or Sladovit (barley malt from health food shops), or we add them to a soup or other meal, to make mostly bitter tablets more palatable for them.
- To achieve faster the effect of taking herbal tablets, this method may also be used: all the tablets that are recommended taking during the day (e.g. 3 x 2 tablets of 2 different products daily = a total of 12 tablets), we dissolve all at once and together in Beverage of Silver Wind (code 844), mix thoroughly in a way we drank down all and leave no “grounds” at bottom.
- This is also ideal to dissolve all herbal tablets of a daily dose (typically 12 or more tablets) in approximately 0.5 l of hot water and drink the lukewarm beverage (preferably from a thermos flask) throughout the day just like coffee, in this case with or without food. Before drinking the beverage, it is always necessary to shake the thermos!
