Hainan attaches importance of development of Li medicine
Recently a signing ceremony was held between Hainan Medicine Research Institution and Wuzhishan Li Minority Folk Medicine Research Association to develop the traditional Hainan Li medicine.
The cooperation between the institutions is not only expected to benefit the advancement of traditional Li medicine, it will also help set up a system for the sustainable development of Li medicine on the island.
Li medicine, which is regarded as one of the treasures of the traditional Chinese medicine system, has effective treatments on common diseases and ailments, including snakebites, minor illnesses and injuries, rheumatic disorder, malaria and liver disease.
Regarded as the King of Li Medicine, Ya Lina is a pharmacist dedicated to encouraging the prescription of Li medicine to patients. In 2001, she established the Wuzhishan Li Medicine Research Association which served as an important platform to carry on the principles of traditional Li medicine.
According to the agreement, both sides have carried out specific details in order to improve the cooperation of Li medical research and the trade of Li medical products.
