Herbal medicine is the use of a plant’s flowers, seeds, roots, berries, leaves, or seeds to treat and prevent disease. Traditional Chinese herbs have been consumed for centuries to heal illness and enhance wellness. Many herbal remedies have already found their way into Western medical use.
Common uses of Chinese herbs include the treatment of allergies, insomnia, hormonal issues, pain, IBS, and digestive problems to name a few. Herbs also promote internal healing and can help energize the body’s own healing systems.
Individual herbs are combined to form a herbal formula which has a stronger effect in the body than if you were to take the individual herbs on their own.
