Good Medicine, Safe Forever

[ From: Eric Jin | Published: 2007-11-27 Views: 1860 | Booked times: 58 ]

Founded in the early 15th century, YongAnTang is the quintessential ¡°time-honored¡± brand. This herbal medicine shop, with a history of over 500 years, certainly lives up to its name ¡°Safe forever¡± in the minds of Chinese. Today, YongAnTang has 38 branch shops and 15 chain stores in Beijing.. I went to the location on ChaoNei Dajie.

Upon entering the store, I saw both Western and Chinese medicines inside, including their own specialties ginseng and pilose antlers. Prices range from several yuans for generic off-the-counter medicine up to RMB 1,000 for a kg of ginseng. The medicine advisors speak basic English, and can prescribe the right medicine to your symptom. They offer all levels of choices, from mild symptom-treating pills to prescription-level antibiotics.

In addition to shops, YongAnTang also has 10 clinics around the city, where senior practitioners can give you great medical consultation. If you don¡¯t want to travel, try out their mail-order department to have the medicine delivered to your home.
