Chinese herbs have been used for centuries. Herbology is traditionally one of the more important modalities utilized in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for health and wellness. Each herbal medicine prescription is a combination of many herbs tailored to the individual. Chinese herbology often incorporates ingredients from all parts of plants, the leaf, stem, flower, root…, and minerals. The following comes from Acupuncture.com, “Medicinal herbal therapy works in concert with acupuncture by providing the nourishing support for the energetic “re-programming” and “re-balancing” efforts of acupuncture.”
Each person's response to a Chinese Herb is unique. Before Gail studied Chinese Herbology he would go to Vitamin Cottage or Whole Foods and try to determine how to treat himself and his family. We do not recommend doing this. The results were mixed at best!
