Chapter 472 - The Fourth Episode: Process Herbs

Medical Master
     On the Wulin forum, the messages were delivered fast.

    After a short while, this battle had been settled.

    Everyone couldn’t help but exclaim that things happened so fast.

    Meawhile, all the people in Wulin began to look forward to this Friday.

    Many people had already booked the plane tickets and train tickets to go to Jiangjing City on Thursday and Friday.

    Over here, after Fang Qiu finished packing, he had breakfast with Jiang Miaoyu, and then they took the high-speed train to Bozhou City in Huizhou Province.

    When they arrived at Bozhou, Fang Qiu and Jiang Miaoyu didn’t directly go to the hotel prepared by the crew. Instead, they went to the Chinese herbal medicine market in Bozhou, which was the largest Chinese herbal medicine market in the country.

    After strolling in the market for a while, Jiang Miaoyu asked, “Do you think that the reason why the crew asked us to come here is that this round is related to these herbs?”

    “Yeah, I think so.” Fang Qiu nodded and said, “The most famous thing here is medicinal herbs.”

    Jiang Miaoyu asked, “Can you guess what the rules of this round are?”

    Fang Qiu said, “There’s not much competition related to Chinese medicinal herbs except for dividing, decocting, and processing.”

    “Yeah, that’s what I think too,” Jiang Miaoyu nodded and said. “But I don’t think there would be processing. It’s a dealer’s business. It has nothing to do with traditional Chinese Medicine.”

    The next day, everything was the same as usual.

    At seven o’clock in the morning, everyone was summoned by the crew to a large conference room in the hotel.

    Everyone was seated.

    The staff of the crew also arrived on time.

    “Everyone is here.” When Director Li Huawen entered the door, he glanced at all the contestants, smiling.

    In his eyes, these contestants were equal to the ratings, especially Fang Qiu.

    Not to mention Director Li Huawen, even the eyes of the rest of the crew would light up when they saw Fang Qiu.

    Fang Qiu was not used to it.

    But there was nothing he could do about it. After all, he did have the potential for shooting a variety show.

    When Director Li Huawen walked to the host seat, he said directly, “This is not the first time that we gather together, so I’ll just cut to the chase. Let me just announce what we need to do in the fourth episode.”

    Upon hearing that, everyone was looking forward to it.

    Li Huawen then continued, “We’re going to test your ability to process and identify herbs in the fourth episode!”

    As they heard that, all the participants were dumbfounded.

    Jiang Miaoyu, who was sitting next to Fang Qiu, suddenly widened her eyes and looked at Fang Qiu in surprise.

    She didn’t expect that Fang Qiu was right.

    Although he was just right about processing herbs and didn’t mention to identify herbs, it was also quite impressive.

    At the same time, there was a lot of noise in the conference room.

    “What is processing herbs? What the hell is that?”

    “We don’t know how to do it at all!”

    “Isn’t it too difficult?”

    “That’s right. It takes decades to achieve a minor achievement even in medical skills. Who has time to learn to process medicinal herbs?”

    Obviously, the participants were very dissatisfied and upset about it.

    At this time, one of the contestants stood up and said, “Director, I don’t deny that Chinese herbs are indeed a very important part of Chinese Medicine. If you want to test our medicine identification ability, we wouldn’t have any objection. But processing herbs is a bit irrelevant. Not to mention today’s modern society, even when the technology was underdeveloped in ancient times, it was very difficult to find doctors that could process herbs by themselves. And nowadays, there are ready-made medicinal herbs everywhere. Even if we learn how to process, we have no chance to put it into practice by ourselves. Then why do we have to learn it? And why do we have to waste our time processing medicine by ourselves?”

    The moment he finished, the rest of the participants nodded in agreement.

    “Yes, this round doesn’t have any practical meaning at all.”

    “We won’t need it at all even if we learn it.”

    “When you make your own medicine, the patient will be dead already!”

    All kinds of questions came one after another.

    At this moment. “Silence!”

    Next to the host seat, Yang Juanyong, who was a highly-skilled doctor, stood up and shouted. Then he glanced at all the participants present and said, “That you don’t know how to do it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t learn about it. Processing Chinese medicinal herb is the most basic part of learning Chinese Medicine. Otherwise, how do you think Chinese Medicine comes? Did the great doctor, Shennong, have to wait for people to process the medicine first before he treated a patient?”

    As that came out, everyone was speechless.

    They were thinking that Yang Juanyong was making it complicated. Now that there were ready-made medicines, it was really meaningless to make medicine by themselves.

    “As Chinese Medicine doctors, do you really think that you don’t need to know how to process medicinal herbs?”

    Yang Junyong snorted coldly and said, “Don’t you need to understand in what kind of way can you process medicine that has a better property? The medicine processed by different methods is suitable for different diseases, shouldn’t you understand?”

    As they heard that, all the contestants were silent.

    It was true that different processing methods would lead to different uses of medicinal herbs.

    For example, the use of medicine pills and the powder was different, so the final effect would be somewhat different.

    Yang Juanyong questioned once again, “Have you ever read a famous medical book like Master Lei’s Book on Processing?”

    This time, everyone had nothing to say.

    However, there were still many people who were not convinced.

    In their opinion, even if they learned how to make it, they might never have a chance to process herbs in their lives. What was the point?

    Since they had time to study processing, it would be better to spend the time practicing medical skills.

    Yang Juanyong then shouted, “Anyone who doesn’t know how to process medicinal herbs, raise your hand!”

    Upon hearing that, people raised their hands at once.

    At a glance, so many palms were raised high.

    After looking around, Yang Juanyong couldn’t help but curl his lips. “Well, someone knows how to do it!”

    As soon as he finished his words, everyone turned to look at the two who didn’t raise their hands at the same time.

    One was Fang Qiu, the other one was Holy Doctor Chu’s disciple, Luo Jie.

    Seeing that the two of them didn’t raise their hands, everyone was amazed.

    Luo Jie’s background was very mysterious, so everyone didn’t know much about him.

    But Fang Qiu was different.

    He had never studied medicine before high school, and now he was only a freshman. He had only studied Chinese Medicine for about half a year. How could it be possible for him to know how to process herbs?

    Not to mention the others, even Jiang Miaoyu, who was sitting next to Fang Qiu, was also surprised.

    She didn’t know that Fang Qiu could process medicine at all.

    Besides, Fang Qiu had never mentioned it.

    As Fang Qiu and Luo Jie became the focus of attention, they looked at each other at the same time.

    Fang Qiu was not surprised at Luo Jie’s ability in processing medicine.

    After all, he was a disciple of a holy doctor.

    It would be too embarrassing if he didn’t even know how to process medicine.

    However, Luo Jie couldn’t help but be amazed when he knew that Fang Qiu could process herbs.

    It was reasonable that he could process medicine by himself, but how could Fang Qiu do that?

    He thought even Xu Miaolin was not so good at processing herbs.

    In Fang Qiu’s mind, the figure of that old man appeared again.

    The keeper of Yaowang Mountain! During the period of studying and working on Yaowang Mountain, Fang Qiu could see the keeper of Yaowang Mountain making medicine every day. At that time, Fang Qiu was interested in medicine, so he started learning the knowledge of herbal medicine from the keeper while asking for the method of processing herbs.

    Therefore, while learning the property of medicine, cultivation, and other herbal knowledge, Fang Qiu was also learning the method of processing medicine.

    At first, Fang Qiu thought it was something that wouldn’t be used for the rest of his life.

    But he didn’t expect that it actually came in handy today.

    Yang Juanyong said, “Here! It means that there is still someone that can carry on Chinese Medicine.”

    Upon hearing that, all the contestants were unhappy.

    What did it mean that there was someone to carry on Chinese Medicine?

    What about the rest of them?

    After all, they were also the top 30 of the whole country, and everyone had their own pride. Even if it was a highly-skilled doctor who said these words, they were still very unhappy and unwilling to accept it!

    “Even though they say that they can, there’s no proof.”

    “That’s right. I can say that I know how to process herbs too. Would you believe me even if I told you so?”

    “Who knows if they can do it or not? Everyone knows how to show off.”

    “Since you’re so capable, show me what you’ve got!”

    Everyone began to ridicule them.

    At this moment, Jiang Miaoyu said suddenly as she stood up. “I believe Fang Qiu can do it.”

    “Very well.” Yang Juanyong nodded with a smile, signaling Jiang Miaoyu to sit down. Then he asked, “Anyone else?”

    No one in the room raised his hand.

    No one believed it except Jiang Miaoyu.

    Even the descendants of the four noble families were in disbelief.

    Before the competition, they had done some research about Fang Qiu thoroughly.

    Judging from Fang Qiu’s experience and educational background, it was absolutely impossible for him to learn how to process herbs,

    Therefore, they didn’t want to believe it.

    Yang Juanyong shook his head and sighed, “Alas. You don’t know how to do it, and you even refuse to believe that others can. This is a bad attitude.”

    Everyone curled their lips.

    It wasn’t that they had a bad attitude, but processing herbs was something that ordinary people couldn’t do.

    “Mr. Yang, it’s not that we don’t want to believe it. It’s because no one wants to learn processing medicine at all. No one can even think of learning it. Now even in college, there is no course teaching how to process medicine. How can we trust Fang Qiu?”

    “It’s okay if you want us to believe it. We’ll know if he shows it to us.”

    “Yes, show me what you’ve got.”

    “If it’s true, what’s the harm to show it?”

    For a moment, the conference room became noisy.

    “Silence!” At this time, Li Huawen suddenly said to everyone, “If Fang Qiu and Luo Jie can really process medicinal herbs, what else do you have to say?”

    “If they really can, we have nothing to say.”

    “Yes, as long as they can, we will absolutely obey the rules.”

    “I’m afraid that someone would just fake it and pretend to be Mr. know-it-all and get all of us in trouble.”

    Obviously, none of them were stupid.

    Although they didn’t know how to process, it was a competition after all. As long as it was a competition, there would be a chance to get a promotion. They wouldn’t risk their chance to win the competition for the anger in their hearts.

    Director Li Huawen nodded and said, “All right! I will announce the final decision later!”

    When he said this, he was actually overjoyed.

    Just at the beginning, there was a conflict.

    This was just another eye-catching drama!

    In fact, the director even felt that if Fang Qiu really didn’t know how to do it in the end, the drama would be more fierce. But he also hoped that Fang Qiu could really do it, because only in this way could Fang Qiu, the ace contestant in their show, continue to gain more popularity for the show.
