Chinese herbs work similarly to acupuncture in that they are designed to treat the individual and not the disease. If five people present with a headache they will walk out with five different formulas because they are all individuals. We do not have a one size fits all herbal formula just like we do not have a one size fits all acupuncture treatment. We select herbs like we select acupuncture points: according to our 4 pillars of diagnosis, and following our designated treatment plan. When prescribed by an experienced practitioner they are designed to treat the root of chronic disease as well as acute conditions, balance the body and restore it to a healthy state, without any side effects.
