Chinese herbal medicine uses the paradigm of East Asian medical theory to approach disease and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as the treatment of it. There are hundreds of herbs in Chinese herbal medicine – most of them are plants and a small number are from animal and mineral sources. Many herbs from the Chinese pharmacopoeia now appear in your over-the-counter supplements at your local pharmacy.
The advantage of being prescribed herbs by a qualified herbalist, is that the formula can be tailored to your constitution and to address your individual health concerns. Whilst traditionally available in the form of raw herbs that required decocting, it is more common nowadays to take herbs as granules in tea form, capsules and pills.
