Why is it Important to take Herbs?

November 19th, 2010

The foundation of Chinese medicine lies in its many classic herbal formulas, which have been used for thousands of years. The Chinese have the largest pharmacopeia in the world with over 3500 medicinals. While acupuncture works with the meridian system to energetically connect the body from the outside-in, Chinese herbal medicine works biochemically from the inside-out. The two work together synergistically to alleviate symptoms and, most importantly, address the root of the problem thus, preventing symptoms from recurring. Taking herbs helps increase the efficacy of your acupuncture treatments.
