Chinese Herbal Medicine is a very important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Chinese Herbs have been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of conditions with excellent results.  Some conditions that are treated are:  infertility, PMS, menopause, menstrual cramps, hypertension, gastritis, acid reflux, insomnia, anxiety, muscle pains, and many more.  Because Chinese Medicine treats syndromes and focuses on the root problem of conditions instead of just treating symptoms, they are prescribed as formulas.  A formula is created by mixing many herbs together. The formula given to a patient depends on the TCM diagnosis. Here are some of the categories of Chinese Herbal Formulas:

Nourishing Yin

Tonify Yang

Tonify Chi

Tonify Organs (Lung, Spleen, Kidneys)
