I have come across an interesting substance for treating liver disease, Squirrel feces, a chinese medicine. Apparently it is widely used in chinese medicine and is TGA approved. In fact all batches are tested by the TGA for any impurities. Is anyone else using/have used it? I wonder what the Doc thinks of it? kindly Berrinice
No I don't have any TGA links. A teaching college supplies it through their student clinic and my friend told me what the qualified teaching Dr said. TGA approved and each batch tested. I don't think they would prescribe it if its not TGA approved. The college has a long standing professional name to protect.
But if anyone can find it as an approved medicine I would really appreciate it. The chinese name is Wu Ling Zhi or squirrel feces. kindly B
So not as off the wall as it sounds although I suspect TGA approval would be either an extract or synthesis of one of the chemicals present (possibly isopimarane diterpene?) rather that the squirrel poop itself.

Well, if your in the U.S., you would have to smuggle in your Chinese flying squirrel scat, because the FDA has a ban on it.
I wonder if you can smoke it?
Something about eating tree rat droppings...
