Chinese herbal medicine

Chinese medicine has over 800 herbs including over 300 that are commonly used. Once the diagnostic and treatment strategy is established, a prescription for each individual patient is tailored, based on the properties of each herb. Typically these prescriptions have 6-15 herbs and they are taken 1-3 times per day as a decoction or a powder dissolved in hot water, in the same way as making instant coffee. Throughout the progression of treatment and response shown, each person’s prescriptions are adapted to continually resonate with the current health status of the patient.
