I am trying to find a herbal medicine which is produced by the Mayway Co. This company told me they only sell wholesale and referred me to your company as a possible source of this herbal medicine which they call "General Chi" or "bu zhong yi qi wan". They also have a herbal medicine which is call pill curing which I would also like to get.

"Bu zhong yi qi wan" is a traditional Chinese herbal medicine formula, not a single plant. It is made with ginseng, astragalus (Chinese milkvetch root), dong quai (Angelica sinensis), bupleurum, licorice root, bai zhu (Atractyloides) rhizome, ginger rhizome, citrus, and bugbane (Cimicifuga) rhizome. Each one is present in different amounts.

It is used for treating weak pulse, fatigue, severe loss of appetite, occasional headache, night sweat, etc. Some traditional Chinese herbalists sell this in pill form. If you have a Chinese district in your area you should be able to find this pill.

We have no idea what "pill curing" could be.
