 Chinese Medicine Winter Park ColoradoHere is an interesting story about the discovery of herbal medicine:

Many centuries ago, according to Chinese folklore, a farmer in Yunan found a snake near his hut and beat it senseless with a hoe, leaving it for dead.  A few days later he discovered the same snake slithering in his yard and again he tried to kill it.  When the apparently indestructible reptile appeared again a few days later the farmer gave it another beating, but this time he watched the bleeding snake crawl into a clump of weeds and begin eating them.  By the next morning its wounds were healing again and it was already recovering its vitality.  Such was the discovery, as legend has it, of San Qi (Panax Notoginseng), the main ingredient of Yunan Bai Yao, a white herbal powder that counteracts internal and external bleeding.  It does this by binding the edges of wounds and swiftly healing torn tissue. To this day there are many Chinese who use this to treat open wounds.
