    Default Medicine hasn't been spread to the society?

    Hello Everyone,

    On May 12, Sichuan, the central province in China, was hit by the biggest earthquake in recent years! And I read a piece of News from Xinhua agency that Shaolin Temple in Henan Province has decided to send about 10 monks who have profound medical and pharmaceutical experience to the disaster area to treat the wounded, bringing along with them some secretly-made herbal medicine, which has not been spread to the society before. The sort of medicine can be intaken or spread. I would like to know here how we should name the medicine in a appropriate way? Can I say secretly-made medicine?

    Regards

    Sky
