CHINESE HERBAL FORMULAS are specifically made for almost everything that ails you.  From treating coughs and stuffy noses to reducing symptoms brought on by chemotherapy.

The historical roots of modern pharmacology were embedded in herbal medicine.  A quarter of modern prescription drugs include plant extracts.  Western pharmaceutical drugs capitalize on a single biologically active ingredient to produce a specific physiological effect.  This accounts for their potency and also for their side effects.  With Chinese herbs active ingredients are enfolded within the whole plant.  This tends to buffer their side effects. 

Herbal formulas are commonly prescribed by Chinese medical practitioners, either with acupuncture or by themselves.  Herbal formulas may be taken as tea, concentrated liquid extracts, powders or pills.
