Herbal medicine began as a folk medicine but has evolved into a complex medical system. Herbs are a time tested remedy used to create balance in the body. Herbs are used to treat the source of illness rather than just targeting specific ailments. Chinese medicine is the longest continuing medical practice in history with a complete listing of medicinal substances used and their therapeutic qualities unparalleled by similar practices in other cultures.
Herbal medicine treats a full range of human illness. Chinese herbs are combined in a way to enhance each other’s beneficial properties. This also allows for a variety of problems to be addressed with a single supplement instead of receiving multiple prescriptions. Hundreds of classic formulas have been published by famous doctors. Formulas are selected that will best fit the patient and, if needed, can also be modified to suite the patient’s individual needs.
