Observing 红景天/Hong Jing Tian/Rhodiola rosea in nature and in the clinic

红景天/Hong Jing Tian/Rhodiola rosea is currently blooming away and is quite the delight to witness against a clear blue sky.

My favorite VIP at Zhejiang Provincial Hospital is Dr. Wang. He practices a wonderfully nuanced form of internal medicine that is a synthesis of the many currents present in the Hangzhou medical culture with Dr. Wang’s own personal brilliance.

 A case study from my time with him in 2011 invloving the use of Hong Jing Tian in the treatment of Xiong Bi/Chest Obstruction can be found here.
