About Chinese Herbal Medicine
Herb, as used in herbal/botanical medicine, is defined as a plant or plant part that is used to make medicines, aromatic fragrances, or culinary spices. An herb can be a leaf, flower, stem, seed, root, fruit, bark, or any other plant part used for its medicinal, food flavoring, or fragrant properties. Herbs have provided humankind with medicine from the earliest beginnings of civilization. Throughout history, various cultures have handed down their accumulated knowledge of the medicinal uses of herbs to successive generations. This vast body of knowledge serves as the basis for much of traditional medicine today.
The practice of Chinese herbal medicine stretches back over more than 5,000 years, embracing the domains of earth and sea, season and weather, plant and animal, and all of the elements that constitute the universe. Contemporary Chinese medicine represents the cumulative clinical experience and time-tested theories of five millennia of continuous practice by traditional Chinese physicians. It remains the world’s oldest, safest, and most comprehensive system of medical care, developing as dynamically today as it has throughout its long history. It is time for the West to acknowledge the efficacy of Chinese herbs and benefit from the profound insights and potent remedies traditional medicine has to offer.
