The herbal therapy
is the main portion of Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is the small portion of it. Herbal therapy is not directed to a single symptom or part of the body but depends on a pattern of symptoms, called the symptom-complex. The aim is not to kill bacteria, viruses, cells, and so forth, but to re balance the body so that it can heal itself. Recall that symptoms indicate an imbalance of Qi and Blood. Centuries of clinical experience have led to the elimination of large doses of toxic herb and dangerous prescriptions. A traditional Chinese formula is a custom designed for each patient. After a short trial, the formula is redesigned. Unlike drugs, proper herbal treatment is virtually free of dangerous side effects.
