Herbal Medicine

Traditional Chinese herbal medicine is an incredibly sophisticated form of health-care.   Very rarely are Chinese herbs prescribed individually; and combining different herbs together produces different results.  Herbal formulas are tailored to each induvidual's needs; so much so that two people with the same complaint might receive completely different herbs.  Furthermore, while using herbs is an incredibly powerful tool in restoring a healthy condition, overusing certain herbs can push one out of the balance of health and become a stress to the body.  What was good for you two weeks ago may no longer be needed and its important to recognize when changes should be made.  This is why it is paramount to seek a professional if you are interested in taking any kind of herbs.
