Herbal medicine itself is a powerful method of healing: however, herbal medicine can and is often used to enhance the effects of acupuncture treatment.
As implied, herbs are all natural and come from living matter. Herbs are most often given in combinations and formulas deigned for each individual person.
Traditional drugs often control symptoms but do not alter the disease process (antibiotics eliminate bacteria but do not improve a person’s resistance to infection) Chinese herbs treat the underlying condition and resolve the symptom. Herbs rarely cause unwanted side effects.
