Chinese Herbs

In modern China herbal medicine is the predominant treatment method. Formulas from classic collections are used and modified to the needs of individual patients.
Chinese Herbs mostly consist of processed parts of plants and flowers, their blossoms, leaves, seeds, branches or roots. Ginger root Sheng Jiang, ginseng Ren Shen, cinnamon twig Gui Zhi or pearl barley Yi Yi Ren are frequently used herbs. Sometimes minerals, shells or animal substances are added. Herbs have an effect on bodily functions, and thereby on the well-being. If properly prescribed, they have very few if any side effects.
Above all herbs are very effective in treating chronic conditions such as fatigue, skin conditions, diabetes, allergies, menopausal complaints, digestive disorders etc. They treat symptoms as well as underlying imbalances and the source of the imbalance. For instance, they can take away headache, and also extreme tension in the neck and back that triggers recurring headaches.

Nowadays, herbs come as a granulated powder and can easily be taken in warm water, they can also be ordered as tablets or drops. No one has to cook all the raw herbs, as was done in the past.
