Tongrentang Traditional Chinese Medicine Shop
Located on the bustling historical Da Zha Lan Alley, this three-storey building with a Qing facade is home to the oldest and most famous pharmacy in China. Naturally they specialize in traditional Chinese medicine, but a small selection of Western products is also for sale. The shop has a distinctive musty aroma of herbal remedies, and behind each counter lurks a bewildering display of dried snakes and seahorses, contorted ginseng roots, deer antlers, peculiar mushrooms and fungi, plus the medicinal spirits selection, including bear gall and tiger bone wines.

Diagnosis and recommendations
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 10/28/04
Oct. 5/04 We went to the pharmacy with a tour guide and were taken to a room where the history of the pharmacy and some explanation of the kinds of raw materials used in the preparations were given by a gentleman with excellent Oxford-accented English. Next we were each seen by a doctor, called a professor by the translator, who felt the pulse in both wrists, looked at our tongue and eyes, and proceeded to tell us of the problems that were utmost in our minds. He was looking for evidence of yin/yang balance or imbalance. We were very impressed, to say the least, at the accuracy of his diagnosis and bought the preparations he recommended. We have great hopes for these preparations, as other forms of conventional Western and naturopathic medicines have not been effective. Be prepared: the preparations are expensive.
