The Shen Nong Nong Ben Cao Jing", the seminal text on Chinese Herbalism, written between 300 BC and 200 AD by Chinese Emperor Shen Nong, this revolutionary work classifies herbs by three categories: Superior, Middle and Inferior. We shall focus on the Panacea element, which may be found in the "Superior" herb category. The first herb listed are the 6 different colors of Ganoderma Lucidum or Reishi Mushroom, ranked even above the famous Panax Ginseng. We shall discuss what the superior herbs do, and discuss Reishi mushroom as an example, with master tonic herbalist, Roger Drummer.
