is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicine is by itself a powerful method of healing.
Western drugs are usually used to control symptoms but do
not alter the disease process. For example: antibiotics kill
bacteria but do not improve a person's resistance to infection;
diuretics drain excess fluid from the body but do not improve
the kidney function. Chinese herbs can also rid the body of
disease but they also nourish and balance the body in very
specific ways, thereby improving organ function and building
up a person's constitution and immune system.
