Herbal therapy is one of the primary elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine. About one-third of prescription pharmaceuticals are plant based. The chosen chemical is isolated and used in a concentrated form. This can lead to undesirable side effects that don’t occur when the medicinal isolate is left in its natural state. By using the entire plant, a balance of biochemical elements is maintained leaving it’s natural healing properties intact.
