    Wikipedia says, "He worked as a herbalist, selling lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shou wu and gotu kola along with other Chinese herbs, and lived off a diet of these herbs and rice wine."

  5. Hi Everyone

    Finally joining after years of off and on lurking and reading the many interesting threads. Not a consistent user of forums and social media, but I'll try to contribute where I can. My main interest is in internal alchemy. A Chinese medicine practitioner, I've been studying Qigong for 12 years with Grandmaster Yuanming Zhang. I've also studied a little of the internal martial arts with him, but before that, only a speck of experience with Qigong and Taiji. My main background is in Wicca and neopagan ritual magic.
