Herbal medicine is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that is used to restore balance of yin & yang. Herbal formulas offer positive benefits with little to no side effects and allow for continued healing in between treatments. Chinese herbal medicines are mainly plant based, but some preparations include minerals or animal products. They can be packaged as capsules, tablets, powders, pastes, lotions, oils, patches, or raw herbs to be steeped like tea, depending on the herbal properties and intended use.

Studies have shown Chinese herbal medicines to be successful in treating a range of disorders, in particular gastrointestinal and gynecological. Some herbs have potent ingredients and should be treated with the same care and respect as pharmaceuticals. Never abandon your regular medication without the knowledge or approval from your doctor, and always consult a licensed herbalist before starting the use of any herbal medicine.
