      Hi Marsha,

      Thanks for joining! As you can see its been quite awhile since Ive picked up my blog, but that is about to change! Yes, hawthorn and is frequently used in TCM, where it is called “Shan zha”. This is an herb with virtually no contraindications—- it is really as risk-free as raspberries! Stay tuned for more posts to come… and tell you friends. Best Regards, Greg
