  1. Dear sir/ Madom,
    As, I have used the formula DA CHAI HU TANG before for dampness and heat of the gallbladder just for 10 days, as, it has passed about 6 months. Now, I feel the same problem as before, so, I have decided to reuse it again. So, kindly please let us know it’s shipping price up Kandahar, Afghanistan, so that I can collect and transfer you by Western Union. Thank you!

    Sincerely Yours,
