Details of (no) Ma Huang Combination

I know its silly but our Ma Huang Tang doesn’t contain Ma Huang. Unfortunately getting Ma Huang has become impossible due to its abuse by both consumers and manufacturers of products that have no ties to Chinese Medicine. Therefore we offer a modification that best mimics (in our view) the spirit of the formula.
