Is Herbal Medicine Really Effective?
Chinese herbs were used as a medicine long before acupuncture. The pharmacopeia developed from experience – traditional medical practitioners used the herbs and noticed certain results. This knowledge was passed down in families and communities. The knowledge was then compiled by members of the Emperor’s court. There are over 3000 years of knowledge that go into Chinese herbal formulas. Research through a Western lens is just beginning to scratch the surface of the effective mechanisms in the herbs – they are discovering active ingredients and trace elements that work together. In formulas, herbs work together to counteract side effects and enhance effectiveness.
We also hear about the effectiveness from our patients in how they sleep better, have better fertility outcomes, have reduced pain, have better digestion, have less anxiety, and feel more focused and present.
