Chapter 328 Testing the Medicine
Since Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company was now on the right track and everything about production and sales was in order, Qin Haodong drove to the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association.
After entering the building, Gao Fengwen picked up a newspaper and said, “President, look at this. Yesterday, our free clinic was very successful. It completely established the reputation of Jiangnan Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association.”
Then, he gave the newspaper to Qin Haodong. The headline on the front page stated, “The Jiangnan Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association is gathering the powers of traditional Chinese medicine practitioners.”
Qin Haodong took the newspaper and read it. The whole page was about Jiangnan Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association. He nodded and said, “Yes, this is a good thing!”
“President, there are more reports!”
Gao Fengwen excitedly took out a few more newspapers. Old people like him were not familiar with new media outlets, such as mobile phones and computers. Newspapers were still the main channel they used to get information.
Suddenly, Shen Xiangfu and his young apprentice walked in from outside. When he saw Qin Haodong, he said hurriedly, “President, yesterday, our Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association really became famous. The Internet is already full of news about us.”
He waved at his apprentice and asked him to quickly find the news to show the president.
The young apprentice quickly turned on his cell phone, brought up the news about the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association and showed it to Qin Haodong.
“Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association, the hope of the rise of traditional Chinese medicine.”
“Jiangnan Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association kindly provided free medical treatment for the masses on the streets.”
“The Medical Sage re-used his magic medical skill, brought back the dead, and revealed the hidden blackmail.”
In addition, there were some negative reports about the Hall of Medical Fame.
“The Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association and the Hall of Medical Fame faced each other on the street, but the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association was better.”
“The Hall of Medical Fame challenged the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association and lost gloomily.”
“Are there really good doctors in the Hall of Medical Fame considering that it failed to challenge the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association?”
Qin Haodong smiled, as he had expected this. No matter what Wang Dacheng’s Hall of Medical Fame did, it would make the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association more famous. Now, the whole country knew about the existence of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association.
After chatting for a while, Qin Haodong told Gao Fengwen, “Mr. Gao, what about the secret treatment?”
Gao Fengwen said, “Thanks to your leadership, everyone is enthusiastic. They have all shared their own unique skills. According to your demand, the association has also given them a sum as compensation.”
Qin Haodong said, “Have you acquired any valuable treatments?”
Gao Fengwen said, “Through these exchanges, the medical skills of our association members have indeed improved. However, the treatments we have shared have limitations. We need to feel the pulse first, and then use them according to the conditions. They cannot be mass-produced like the Blood Revival Pills.”
Qin Haodong was not surprised by this. The Blood Revival Pills originated from the Blood Revival Elixir. It was a treatment he had brought from the Cultivation World that did not appear so easily.
“President, someone wants to join our association!”
While they were talking, Zhong Sihai came in with a red face, followed by a middle-aged man in his 40s.
“This is the president of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association, Doctor Qin Haodong.” He introduced Qin Haodong to the middle-aged man and then said, “This is Doctor Xie Tian, who wants to join our association.”
Since Zhong Sihai had brought him to the association, he must have been inspected. Qin Haodong shook hands with Xie Tian and said enthusiastically, “Welcome to the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association.”
Xie Tian smiled and said, “I’ve heard of the Medical Sage for a long time. The reason I want to join the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association is because of your fame.”
Qin Haodong politely said, “Thank you, Doctor Xie!”
Xie Tian said, “Doctor Qin, to tell you the truth, the reason I want to join the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association is that I want you to promote a treatment for me. As long as you agree, I will join the association. If you don’t agree, I can only leave.”
After hearing this, Zhong Sihai’s face changed. Xie Tian hadn’t said that earlier. It seemed that this person’s motivation for joining the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association was impure. He was too utilitarian.
Qin Haodong said, “Doctor Xie, if you are willing to join the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association, I will welcome you. However, I hope your motivation is traditional Chinese medicine rather than other things.”
Xie Tian said, “Doctor Qin, in fact, this is not a contradiction. My treatment is a pure traditional Chinese medicine treatment that is part of the ancestral secret treatment of the Xie family. In the past, I had no way of promoting it. If I could really promote it with the help of Doctor Qin’s Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company, it would be great for traditional Chinese medicine and all the patients in our country.”
Then, he took out a piece of A4 paper, gave the written treatment to Qin Haodong and said, “Doctor Qin, don’t hurry to refuse. Take a look at my treatment.”
Qin Haodong thought about it and said nothing more. He took the A4 paper and put it on the table. Other people were also curious, so they came to watch.
The name of the treatment was Eight Treasures Kidney-nourishing Pill, and the medicinal ingredients were written below.
Gao Fengwen said first, “It’s excellent. These eight herbs are all common Chinese medicinal herbs. I never thought of combining them to make medicine before. According to my pharmacological calculation, they should have a very good effect on diseases caused by the kidneys. This is a good treatment indeed.”
Shen Xiangfu and Zhong Sihai also saw the good effect of the Eight Treasures Kidney-nourishing Pill. Thus, they nodded their heads and said in admiration, “It’s good. This is really a good treatment. It is much better than what we have collected these days!”
Xie Tian said proudly, “Doctor Qin, this is the ancestral secret treatment of the Xie family. It has an excellent effect on various kinds of nephropathy, ranging from impotence to uremia. Besides, it has no side effects and can be mass-produced.
In a nutshell, once it enters the market, I predict that it will become as popular as your Blood Revival Pills.”
Qin Haodong put down the treatment, looked at him and said, “Aren’t you afraid that I will take such a good treatment for myself after reading it?”
Xie Tian said, “To be honest, I thought of mass-producing this treatment a long time ago, but I didn’t find a suitable partner. In my opinion, businessmen are only after profit. If I give them the treatment, they will probably claim it as their own and I won’t get any money.
The Medical Sage is different. I can see from your Blood Revival Pill that, in order to cure patients, you only sold it at cost price instead of making huge profits from it.
There are few merchants with a kind heart like yours in the world. That’s why I want to cooperate with you. I’m sure you won’t let me down.
What’s more, as a doctor, I don’t want to seek too much profit from medicine. We can set the price at twice the cost price, and you can share the profits with me or buy this treatment directly.”
Qin Haodong said, “Cooperating would be too troublesome. If you are willing to sell this treatment, just tell me how much you want.”
“100 million yuan.” Xie Tian held out a finger and then said, “I think my treatment is absolutely worth the price. If I didn’t respect you, I would sell it for at least 500 million yuan!”
Qin Haodong did not decide directly. Instead, he said, “We can discuss the price later. I want to try your medicine first.”
Deep in his heart, he felt that the treatment was good and would have a good effect in treating human kidney diseases. However, for some reason, he had a bad premonition, as if the treatment was a little strange.
“Try it. I do not mind.”
Xie Tian spoke confidently.
In order to facilitate communication, the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association had opened a huge medicine testing room and prepared a variety of Chinese herbal medicines. Although the medicinal materials were not too many, there was a full range of varieties.
Qin Haodong entered the room with Gao Fengwen and the others. Based on the type and quantity of herbs recorded on the treatment paper, Qin Haodong grabbed eight herbs from the medicine chest.
Upon seeing Qin Haodong’s move, the others were stunned. Qin Haodong seemed to take the herbs casually, but the quantity was the same that was marked on the paper. He could take as much as he wanted casually.
Soon, the herbs were cooked in a medicine pot. After about an hour, Qin Haodong took a spoon to sip and taste the medicine juice.
Gao Fengwen, Shen Xiangfu, and the other people began to taste it too.
Although this medicine was called Eight Treasures Kidney-nourishing Pill, to anyone who had been studying traditional Chinese medicine for a lifetime like them, the form of the medicine didn’t matter. It did not affect its efficacy at all.
After about three minutes, they slowly opened their eyes.
Qin Haodong asked Gao Fengwen, “How do you feel, my senior?”
Gao Fengwen said, “This medicine is pure and strengthens the body and removes pathogenic factors of kidney diseases.”
Shen Xiangfu said, “I also think so. This is absolutely a good medicine for kidney diseases.”
Zhong Sihai said, “We can be sure that this medicine has an effect on kidney diseases, but whether it can treat uremia or can be mass-produced will need to be researched further.”
Although they all affirmed the effect of the Eight Treasures Kidney-nourishing Pill, Qin Haodong shook his head and said, “There is no need to research this. There is something wrong with this medicine. I can’t buy it.”
“What? Something is wrong with the medicine?” Xie Tian flushed and said in a hurry, “Mr. Medical Sage, this is a good treatment passed down by my ancestors. After several generations of verification, it is absolutely effective.”
Gao Fengwen then said, “Yes, President. I believe that this medicine has a pure effect and should have a good effect on kidney diseases.”
“That’s right,” Qin Haodong said, “It can really treat different kinds of kidney diseases.”
Shen Xiangfu asked in surprise, “President, what’s the problem then?”
Qin Haodong said, “I don’t know if you felt it, but although this medicine has an excellent nourishing effect on the kidney meridians, it contains burning Qi, which will immediately impact the liver meridian of the Jueyin Liver Channel of the Foot and cause great damage to the liver.”
As Emperor Green Wood, he knew almost all kinds of herbal medicine materials and had soon found the defect of Eight Treasures Kidney-nourishing Pill.
Zhong Sihai and the others picked up the spoon again and tasted the medicine juice in the pot slowly. A few minutes later, Gao Fengwen opened his eyes and said, “President is right. There is a burning Qi that can really impact the Jueyin Liver Channel of the Foot.”
Shen Xiangfu said, “We just focused on the kidneys, so we didn’t notice the changes in the liver. It seems that this medicine is defective.”
“Uh…” Xie Tian wanted to say something. However, in the face of several Chinese medicine experts, he could not explain.
“Mr. Medical Sage, this medicine is absolutely effective on kidney diseases. I can sell it to you at a lower price. How about 50 million yuan? Otherwise, 30 million will be fine too.”
He hurriedly lowered the selling price of the treatment repeatedly.
Qin Haodong shook his head and said, “If I am right, your treatment is incomplete. It still lacks an herb that can neutralize the burning Qi. If this was complete, it would be a good treatment. However, it has no value now.”
