The following process can be repeated for one dose of herbs up to two times.

Step 1: Press the herbs in the bottom of the pot or jar. Add enough cold water to cover the herbs by at least two centimeters.

Step 2: Let the herbs soak for 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 3: Place the pot on a heat source turned to high. Bring the water to a boil. Then, lower the temperature to simmer the mixture for about 5 to 10 minutes.

How does traditional Chinese medicine treat gallstone and cholecystitis?

Chinese medicine believes that liver and gallbladder are physiologically inseparable and pathologically interrelated. Deficiency of liver Yin will cause the deficiency of bile metaplasia source. The dysregulation of bile composition produces pathological bile, which is the pathological basis for the formation of gallstones. And the malfunctioning of gallbladder, the irregulation of bile excretion provide the condition for the gallstone formation. Usually in Chinese medicine, dandelion, waterline, wormwood, Radix Astragalus, radix Astragalus, fructus brigii, radix Bupleurae, rhubarb, scutellaria scutellaria, and goose-gall extract powder are used to treat gallstones and cholecystitis. These Chinese herbs can be used to treat gallstones and cholecystitis. To clear heat and wetness, to help excrete gallbladder stone. They're can also be  used for the pain of right flank caused by liver-gallbladder dampness-heat, as well as bulbous thirst, vomiting, jaundice and bitter mouth, and cholelithiasis, cholecystitis, biliary tract inflammation caused by liver-gallbladder dampness-heat.
