How to prepare a new formula by using Min Tong single herbal extracts
If you want to prepare a special formula for your patients by adding a few Min Tong single herbal extracts into existing formula, first please figure out what dosage you need of each herb in the formula either by Chinese weight measure units such as "chien" or other measure units such as grams. Then figure out the percentage you want of the added single herbs in the new formula. Then decide how many days' dosage you want to give your patient such as five to seven days or longer.
The standard therapeutic dosage for adult is about 3 grams of granule formula 3 times daily no matter how many different herbs are in the formula. For example, If you need one week's dosage, multiply seven days by nine grams a day which comes to 63 grams total. You can figure out how much of an individual herb extract you need to mix in your formula by multiplying the percentage of that herb by 63 grams. Then you measure the formula and single herbs according to the proportion either by weight scale or by the one gram measure spoon as enclosed when ordering. Shake one minute or longer of the mixture in a container to let them mix well and then give to your patients.
