Herbal Medicineis a very important aspect of Chinese Medicine and is used ideally in tandem with acupuncture by providing the nourishing support for the energetic reprogramming efforts of the acupuncture. There are over hundreds of medicinal substances that are primarily plants such as leaves, flowers, stems, roots and seeds and some minerals and animal products that are classified by their perceived action in the body. These include diaphoretics (cleansing through sweat), anti-inflammatories, diuretics, digestives, relaxants, tonics and internal warmers and many other categories. The herbs are then combined into a well-rounded constructed formula to accomplish several tasks simultaneously to treat various health concerns.
The herbs affects the body by enhancing circulation, subduing pathogens and infections and can even slow down aging. The herbal formulas can be given as teas, capsules, tinctures or powders. Each herb has different actions, properties, directions and uses in the body and are much stronger in action than food. The use of herbs with a balanced diet can often be as effective as pharmaceuticals to treat ailments. Quality control tests and examinations are performed on every herb used for ingestion.
