Chinese Remedy For Phlegm

Alycia has a little phlegm, thus the reason why she puked this morning, I reckon. She also has a little tummy upset and indigestion coz daddy has been feeding her with too much ice creams and cakes over the weekend. All these contributed to her phlegm. Daddy never listens to me, he shows his love towards his 2 precious princesses with food and each time, this is the consequence…. sigh…. and he has to spend lots of money on their medical consultation later. Sigh…… what to do, that’s daddy’s way of showing his love!

Each time Alycia has phlegm, she tends to puke and choke easily. My cousin recommended ‘hao zhou san’, a type of chinese medicine made of monkey’s internal organs which she swears by its effectiveness when mixed with pearl powder. I’ve also heard of its effectiveness in a parenting forum but I somehow tend to have qualms about chinese medicine, especially about monkey’s internal organs, eeuuuu!

I know many parents here have been feeding ‘hao zhou san’ to their children and swear by its effectiveness but I’ve also heard of an isolated case which came out in the chinese papers recently that a toddler slipped into a coma as a result of eating ‘hao zhou san’.

Right now, I’m contemplating feeding Alycia with ‘hao zhou san’ and pearl powder but the paranoia in me feels doubtful. Would be glad to hear your stories and experience with ‘hao zhou san’.
