For thousands of years, Oriental Medicine practitioners have known of and employed a vast array of herbs with medicinal properties.
Western Pharmacology is now beginning to acknowledge these natural counterparts without the side effects of processed pharmaceuticals.
In Oriental Medicine, herbs are almost always prescribed in conjunction with acupuncture and other treatments.
They are extremely effective in unblocking the flow of Qi and fortifying the internal organs. Herbal formulas are specifically designed for the individual needs of the patient. It is unlikely that two patients, even with the same diagnosis, will receive the same herbal prescription.
