What’s in a name? In this case of this plant, precisely what it sounds like. The story goes that a Chinese goatherd discovered the plant’s function over 2,000 years ago when he noticed that his flock was more, erm, in the mood after eating it. TCM doctors figured it must have the same effect on humans. Now, you can consume the plant yourself in tonic or pill form to beat erectile dysfunction or increase your sex drive, regardless of what you’re packing downstairs. This weed doesn’t grow on trees; however – you’ll have to get a prescription from a licensed TCM practitioner. Pay the Oriental Health Chinese Medicine Clinic in Central a visit and they’ll have you covered.
Whether you’re looking to kick-start your performance in the sheets or simply spice things up a bit, traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese folk remedies have the answer. Considering they’ve been around for thousands of years, there’s not a bedroom ailment they haven’t dealt with. All these ingredients can be easily procured from shops or restaurants throughout the city, too.
