What exactly are Chinese herbs?

Chinese herbs are a group of individual herbs that work together in synergy to accomplish

certain goals. In terms of medicinal value, they are similar to pharmaceuticals, but our body

processes them the same way it processes food. The effect of the herbs stays in our body for

three to four hours at most, so they require a longer-term regimen. Each formulation has two

or more individual herbs, and the formulations vary for every individual, depending on

what’s going on with them.

How Chinese herbal medicine works?

The practice of Chinese Medicine is a unique view of the world and the human body, it is

based on the ancient Chinese perception that everything in the universe is interrelated.

Anything that affects one part of the body affects every other part of the body. In Chinese

medicine the systems and components of the body are not viewed separately, but as parts of a

single energetic system. The qi (energy) moves through channels called meridians and is

responsible for interconnection. This uninterrupted energy flow promotes and maintains

health, while any stagnation of qi can lead to disease. As for medicinal herbs, the plants

contain chemical compounds that produce specific actions that affect the body’s biochemistry in a specific way to generate a therapeutic response and create a balance in our unified energetic system.
