Chapter 80: A Weird Disease
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Wang Yao immediately started to read the medical notes brought by Tian Tu Yuan.
The notes were very thorough. It contained both western medicine and Chinese medicine.
The disease was weird with a lot of symptoms. But Wang Yao soon caught the point as he was equipped with the knowledge from the system.
The patient was lack of Yang, which lead to an imbalance of Ying and Yang.
Even during hottest weather of the year, she was still shivering and feeling cold all the time. It was even worse in winter. She stayed at home for at least 300 days throughout a year.
She had been like this for years and her health condition was getting worse.
Wang Yao wanted to see the patient in person for more accurate diagnosis. After all the notes could be inadequate. He was no longer a green hand in medicine. He had grasped how to obtain information by pressing the pulse. He wanted to try it on the patient.
Wang Yao had a basic idea after reading the notes.
The patient was in extremely poor health. He needed to strengthen her immune system first. Regather soup seemed to be suitable.
The only thing was that Guiyuan and Shanjing grew too slowly. According to the look of stems and leaves, Wang Yao knew the roots were not ready.
But he also didn’t have enough reward points to purchase the licorice roots directly from the herbal store.
What can I do?
Wang Yao turned his head and looked at those herbs covered by snow.
The common herbs grew very fast under the nurture of ancient spring water. The five herbs Wang Yao planted earlier were ready to use. He had tried previously to trade common herbs for reward points. But he needed a large amount of herbs.
I can use the herbs if I can’t use any other ways.
But he didn’t take action immediately. He needed to think about it.
After thinking for a whole day, Wang Yao didn’t come up with a better way. So he decided to trade his herbs for reward points.
Regather soup was able to consolidate the corporeity. It wouldn’t harm the body.
Wang Yao dig some Radix the next afternoon.
The ground was as hard as rock due to cold weather. It took Wang Yao fair a bit of effort to dig the herb out.
Fortunately Wang Yao was not in a hurry. He took the Radix one by one and flattened the soil after he had finished digging.
Meanwhile, Wang Yao called Tian Tu Yuan to tell him what he planned to do. He had decided to make a formula for the patient to trial. Tian Tu Yuan was very happy.
It took Wang Yao 3 days to collect enough reward points to exchange for Shanjing and Guiyuan. Now he needed to get the rest of the herbs for Regather soup.
He didn’t have any left in the stock.
Looks like I have to go to town again.
It was close to Chinese New Year. Young people working outside had gradually returned to the village. The village started to become very alive. Everyone could feel the arrival of festive season.
Wang Yao’s vehicle was fixed. The 4S store manager asked one of the staff members to drive the vehicle to town. Wang Yao went to get his vehicle back and bought the rest of herbs required to make Regather soup. But the quality of the herbs he bought this time couldn’t compare to the ones brought by He Qi Sheng the other day. It was such as waste to put the low quality herbs and licorice roots together.
Wang Yao asked the assistant from the herbal store if they could purchase herbs with better quality. The store assistant said they could but would take sometime. So Wang Yao paid the deposit for better herbs.
He asked the store assistant to purchase wild herbs at least. Special requirements for certain herbs were also provided.
He also demanded all the herbs to be available within a weel/
“Leave it to me. I’ll make sure the herbs are ready when you come here to pick them up,” said the store assistant. In fact, clients like Wang Yao were very welcomed by herbal stores, which could make good profit by selling wild herbs.
For example, there are 8 different types of wild Ginseng, which were very hard to distinguish. Even the experts couldn’t tell the difference sometimes, let alone an amateur like Wang Yao.
Wang Yao bought a few clothes for his parents and some stuff for Chinese New Year in the shopping center after he left the herbal store. There are still a few packs of cigarette and bottles of wine at home, including the ones given by Tian Tu Yuan.
“Why did you buy so many stuff? I will go to town a few days later,” Zhang Xiu Ying pretended to complain when she saw Wang Yao had bought so many stuff for Chinese New Year. She was actually quite happy to see her son.
Wang Yao went back to Nanshan Hill after staying at home for a short while.
It was sunny outside but not warm enough to melt the snow fast.
The leaves of trees planted recently had grown bigger. The stems were also taller and stronger.
Grow fast, little ones. When you all grow bigger, the five-line illusion will be more powerful.
Wang Yao went inside his cottage and took out the herbs he bought in town. He was filled with wisdom by the system so he could recognize all the herbs at once.
None of the herbs were wild, and the quality was low.
The herbs were over priced. But he couldn’t find a better place in town to buy herbs. The herbal store he visited regularly was the largest in town with the biggest variety of herbs available, and the herbs were still cheaper than the ones in smaller herbal stores.
I should wait for the wild herbs to be available. Wang Yao put the herbs aside.
He really didn’t want to waste the licorice roots. The more Wang Yao knew about herbs, the more he valued licorice roots. No common herbs could compare to licorice roots.
3 days later He received a phone call to tell him the wild herbs he requested had arrived.
Wang Yao drove his vehicle to the herbal store in town after he had notified his mother. The person who served him was not the store assistant he met last time. It was the manager, Li. Li had small but calculating eyes. He had a big smile on his face. Obviously Li was a typical businessman.
Li didn’t take the herbs out, instead he invited Wang Yao for tea in a meeting room of the store.
“Manger Li, don’t worry about tea, I just came here to get the herbs I ordered last time,” said Wang Yao.
“That’s fine. Have a cup of tea first. It took me great effort to purchase all the herbs you required. It was not easy to get wild herbs,” sighed Li.
“I really appreciate your effort,” said Wang Yao with a smile.
Businessmen only care about profit. Li is not an exception. I hope the herbs won’t have any problem. thought Wang Yao.
After chatting with Wang Yao for a while, Li asked one of the staff members to fetch the herbs and placed them on the table.
Actually Li didn’t need to make a fuss of the herbs. But he thought Wang Yao could be a potential big client and the herbs did have minor problems. He didn’t want anything to go wrong so he served Wang Yao in person.
