Chinese Herbal Medicine

The origins of Chinese herbal medicine in China can be traced back at least 5000 years, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world. It is a major aspect of traditional Chinese medicine, which focuses on restoring a balance of energy, body, and spirit to maintain health rather than treating a particular disease or medical condition. 

There are more than 450 substances commonly used in Chinese herbal medicine, and most of them are of plant origin, as well as some animal and mineral substances. Chinese herbal medicines are prescribed either singly or made into formulae. A well-constructed formula maximizes the effectiveness for treating a particular condition, while counteracting and minimizing the unwanted effects of an individual herb.
