Chinese Herbal Medicine classifies herbs according to their taste and effect on different internal organs and acupuncture meridians. Chinese Herbal medicine uses plants (or parts of plants such as the stems, leaves, flowers, roots, bark, fruits and seeds) to treat illness, relieve common ailments and restore health. Some traditional Chinese systems also use mineral and animal products. Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine treats the whole person rather than individual symptoms. They have classic formulas to treat common problems. But most prescriptions are individually formulated to stimulate the body’s natural healing powers so that it can treat the different problems that people have. Chinese Herbs can come in concentrated Chinese Herbal powder to make Herbal tea. Some times Chinese Herbal Tea is used in combination with acupuncture to treat some problems. In other cases Chinese herbal is used to treat problems on its own, without acupuncture.
