Herbs are a powerful way to rebalance and nourish the body with very few side-effects. Unlike most Western drugs, herbs are combined into a complex formula that address the patient’s entire condition, not just one particular symptom. Most Western drugs can be used to control symptoms but do not alter the disease process. For example, antibiotics kill bacteria but do not improve a person’s resistance to infection; diuretics drain excess fluid from the body but do not improve the kidney function.
Chinese herbs not only address symptoms, they also nourish and balance the body in very specific ways, thereby improving organ function and immune system. Herbs are categorized into two groups The first group is called “food herbs” which are prescribed as part of one’s diet for general fortification, prevention and maintenance. The other group is called “medicinal herbs” which are dispensed to each patient as an individual formula based on one’s constitution, environment and medical condition.
Herbs are also used for prevention and maintenance. It can restore and fortify your body to its optimal condition.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine consists of 5,767 substances derived from plant, animal, and mineral sources. The use of these substances can be traced back to 1,000 BC. Over the past 3000 years, an incredibly rich and powerful system has medicine has been created. During this time, classical herbal formulas that are effective for many health concerns have been developed. Herbs are available in a variety of forms including herbal teas, liquid extracts, tablets, capsules, granules, lotions, creams, salves, or poultices.
