What are Chinese Herbs?
Chinese herbs are naturally occurring substances that are part of everyday life in China and many are part of the western diet. Chinese is a general term relating to substances of plant, animal and mineral origin. An herbal Chinese formula is made up of a number of ingredients. This is a very different approach than western medicine, which usually employs a single drug at a time. Through clinical observation, the Chinese learned which herbs work to return the body back to a balanced state. The ingredients of your prescription are carefully picked by your practitioner to treat your individual condition.
