Chinese Herbs aka The Four Gentlemen

I went to see my acupuncturist yesterday to talk to him about the taste of dirt. I told him that I did not like the herbs and asked him to remind me why I agreed to take them. He said that they would lift up my Qi (an important energy source that runs through the body), make me stronger, and help my reproductive system.

He said that the herbs he prescribed where a 'classic formula' and that they contained a mix between 'the four gentlemen' and 'four things soup'.

I will let you know if I notice any improvement in my chi, or if the herbs start to taste any better.

I tried some herbs about a year ago, and I found them so foul that I couldn't even get them down - the smell of them turned everything I had brewed them in as well; I had to throw out a pot!! Good luck, and I hope you are stronger than I!
