  1. Hi Eran, I wonder about the use of Bai Jiu. Is it decocted so that the alcoholic content is removed? Is it added at the end? I like how he modified for the blood stasis and the inclusion of Gui Zhi – I would guess to move and warm the Yang of the chest.

  2. Hi Sharon,There is actually no mention of how the Bai Jiu is used in the book. I would assume though that it was added at the end, as the boiling would most certainly destroy and dissipate the alcohol, which I think would be wanted,no?
