Chinese herbs are a truly holistic form of treatment, aiming at the whole body rather than just the symptoms. Chinese herbs are used to regulate the internal organs and the immune system by providing minute nutritional ingredients that are lacking from the average human diet. Each of the herbs has its own property, nature, flavor, and channel tropism (meridian). When combined the individual characteristics are enhanced and the function of healing is improved.
The most important art of Chinese herbs is the process of combining herbs and the more experienced and skillful the practitioner is, the more effective the herbal mixture will be.
