The first chinese phytotherapy book, the "Shinnō Honzōgyō"(The Divine Farmer's Herb-Root Classic), is attributed to the deity "Shinnō" in japanese, "Shennong" in chinese, who was said to have lived around 4000 and 5000 years ago. We said he tested on himself the effects of 70 different types of herbal drug upon his own body. The legend says that he died and regained life few times during his tests. One of his famous discovery is is the medical effect of tea. He drank tea as an antidote every night after his experimentations.
Shennong is the patron deity especially of farmers, rice traders, and practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine
