The most common method of taking Chinese herbal medicine is drinking a liquid, prepared by boiling the selected herbs. There are also herbal pills, tablets, tinctures and powdered extracts for those who do not have the time or taste for drinking the more traditional liquid form.

What is Chinese herbal medicine good for?

Chinese herbal medicine treats the full range of human diseases. It is used to treat:

  • acute diseases, like acute gastritis and common cold
  • chronic diseases, such as autoimmune diseases and chronic viral diseases
  • degenerative diseases due to aging

Is Chinese medicine safe?

When practiced correctly by qualified practitioners, Chinese herbal medicine is very safe. This is because Chinese medicine seeks to restore balance holistically, not just the piece or part. Side effects mean there is imbalance, which needs to be corrected.
