Product Questions

1.Are Chinese herbs safe?

Chinese herbs have been used for thousands of years in China with few negative health effects. When taken as directed and with common sense, most Chinese herbs are no more unsafe than common food items.

2. Who can take Chinese herbs?

Our herbs are recommended for most healthy adult people as a means to promote better health and well-being. However, we do recommend the following precautions:

• Pregnant women or women nursing a baby refrain from taking ANY herbs due to lack of testing of most herbs on fetuses and infants.

• People who have food allergies, sensitivities or digestive problems should be cautious when taking herbs, and carefully review the ingredients on the label for potential allergic reactions.

• If you're currently taking any prescription medication, please see your doctor before taking herbs to ensure there are no contraindications (we cannot advise on contraindications with medicine you may be taking).

• If you have a serious or life-threatening medical condition, please see your doctor.

3. Can I take herbs with prescription medications?

It is advise to take chinese herbs 2 hours after taking medications from doctor.

4. What dosage should I take?

Our herbal soups, desserts and flower teas are not confine to any dosages.

5. I've taken an herbal formula for several days, and I still don't feel anything .

Be patient. Most Chinese herbal formulas take time to build up in your system and produce the desired effects. Chinese herbs are similar to nutritious foods, acting to strenghten your body and optimize your health over longer periods of time. While some herbs (such as cold/flu herbs and women's formulas) produce effects within a few days, most take several weeks to several months of regular use to produce the desired health effects.

This is in contrast to Western remedies such as pain relievers, which may relieve a condition for a few hours while doing nothing to address the underlying condition in the body.

6.Can you diagnose my condition?

We are a retailer of Chinese formulas and supplements sold in the Malaysia as dietary supplements.

We DO NOT provide diagnoses for customers. If you'd like professional advice on your condition, we recommend you meet personally with your physician or a trained herbalist or acupuncturist.

Please note that we are unable to respond to any email or phone inquiries requesting advice on a specific disease condition.

7. Can I take herbs while pregnant or nursing?

All our products are safe for pregnany or nursing unless stated in the product descriptions

8. Can I take herbs during menstruation?

Certain herbs and formulas may increase the quantity and duration of bleeding during menstruation, so caution is advised in using herbs other than specific formulas intended for menstruating women.

Tracking Says "Delivered" but Package Not Received/Lost

If your package was processed through a local post office or courier, tracking details may say 'Delivered' once it arrives at the carrier's facility, but it may take up to an additional 3 to 4 days to arrive at your address.

If you've waited 7 to 10 days after delivery confirmation and you still don't have the package:

* See if someone else accepted delivery. Check with household members, neighbors, building managers, the mail room, front desk, and anyone else who may have accepted the delivery.

* Look around the delivery location. Carriers sometimes leave packages in a safe, hidden place like on a side porch, in/around your garage, or behind bushes.

* Check your mailbox. Smaller items or items in soft packages are likely to be delivered there.

* Check for a parcel locker key. If your mailbox is in a cluster box unit (i.e., several mail boxes clustered together) or your package is addressed to a P.O. Box, check your box for a key to a parcel locker where the package may have been delivered.

* Look for a notice of attempted delivery. You may find an attempted delivery notice in your mailbox or P.O. Box or on your door. Follow the instructions on that notice to request redelivery or pick up the package.

* Contact the carrier. Ask if they have additional information about the package's location. Have your tracking or delivery confirmation number handy.

* Occasionally a carrier will scan a package as delivered before it arrives at the final destination, or the package may have been misdirected by the carrier and it could take an additional 7-10 days to redirect the mail to the proper location.

* If your package doesn't arrive within 10 days of shipment and the tracking information has still not been updated, please Contact Us.
