Gancao.net

Al Loren Stone passed away around 7 years ago. Before he left us (went ahead of us?) he gave me his digital legacy of which he was rightfully proud. This included Eagleherbs.com that sells herbs to consumers. But also he had previously made this, the more informational Gancao.net.

Al was the originator of Acupuncture dot com- one of the first and highly regarded web sites dealing with alternative medicine.  He was a very electronic and communication oriented guy. Not by accident, he spent many years as a radio host and announcer. Unfortunately, in a fit of bad judgement (in his words), he sold acupuncture dot com in order to finance studies in China for a few months. Much of Gancao.net is the spirit of  acupuncture dot com before he sold the name.

I have left this site as an archive of his writings and interests from that time. Tongues and Pulses and basic theory haven’t changed that much over 2000 years but a lot of the other information such as the practitioner lists have. Also he was beginning to sell a few herbs here but please, please, please don’t order on this (GANCAO.NET) web site. Find the same formula and order on Eagleherbs.com. Its just a big mess if you do order from gancao.net.

So please, poke around – the tongue diagnosis is still popular – and let me know if we are selling any formulas on this site.

Thanks, Douglas Eisenstark L.Ac. 2019

Some of the highlights of this site for me are the DSHEA guidelines and the student resources.Also rather touching is the special relationship he had with the acupuncture society of Pakistan to which he had a very proud and affectionate relationship. Every year at their meetings they would put up a picture of Al as sort of Saint.
