refers to the art and practice of combining Chinese herbs
and formulae for a therapeutic effect. Chinese Herbology
impacts the chemistry of the body.
Each plant, mineral, and in some cases, animal, carries with
it a quality, function, and flavor. An acrid herb is
uplifting and may be used to lift exterior excess up and out
of the body. By contrast, a sour herb has an astringing
action that restrains and holds in.
Herbs work together in different ways. Some are
complimentary, working together to enhance one, the other, or
both. Some Chinese herbs negate each other. This can be a
positive interaction if what they are nullifying is
toxic, as an example.
Chinese Herbal Therapy is used alone or in in conjunction
with Acupuncture. This branch of
Chinese medicine is very complex and requires a practitioner
skilled in the art and practice of Chinese Herbology and
Traditional Chinese Medicine.
