Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back thousands of years and includes other treatments such as acupuncture, herbal remedies, dietary guidance,
and various mind and body practices including tai chi and qigong.
Chinese Herbs are highly specific in their actions and possess various qualities and properties that target different aspects of an ailment. Chinese Herbs are categorized as hot, cold, bitter or sweet, and more. When your illness is hotter in nature, cooling herbs are suitable. As an example, the common cold may have heat symptoms, such as fever and a sore throat. So a herb formula would include herbs of a colder nature to clear the heat from you.
