Thanksgiving with Ban Lan Gen Ke Li (TCM for Colds)

By November 21, 2012

Follow me on:

TCM for coldsI wish all of my American counterparts a very Happy Thanksgiving today. I will be celebrating with several packets of Ban Lan Gen Ke Li (板蓝根颗粒), my go-to choice for battling a cold. I swear by this remedy and decided it might be a good idea to share it with readers. If you're traveling to China this fall/winter, you might want to remember this little tip in case you, like me, fall victim to China's germs.

With kids in school, a traveling husband, a really really small oven and parent-teacher conferences tonight for my elementary-school-age son, I have decided to celebrate Thanksgiving at Christmas.
