Restore Harmony and Increase Natural Immunity
The methods of traditional Chinese medicine has evolved over thousands of years, and is part of an overall harmonic treatment designed to help balance the body as well as treating specific problems. Teas, powders and granules are commonly prescribed for ailments as well as restorative purposes. These are made using different parts of plants based on their effectiveness for a specific problem. The popularity of Chinese herbology has continued to increase as people look for natural alternatives to modern medicine.
