Chinese Herbs

To use Chinese Herbs well, the practitioner must systematically match the patient's symptoms to the herbs, and be well versed in classical texts such as Shang Han Lun and Jin Gui Yao Lue. For mild cases, concentrated powders of these herbs, known as granules, are used for their convenience. For more severe cases, raw herbs, that require cooking, are necessary.
