Chinese Medicine has been healing for thousands of years. One of its primary principles is that life exists as collaborative energies, known as yin and yang. The interaction between yin and yang creates qi, a person’s life force. Sometimes people’s qi gets blocked. One of Chinese Medicine’s treatments for this is herbs. In Chinese Medicine, the body’s organs are connected to different elements--earth, air, fire, water, and wood. For ailments related to certain organs, an herb with a balancing property may be prescribed. One should always consult a Chinese Medical practitioner to find the most beneficial herbs. A great part of Chinese Medicine is that when these herbs treat you, instead of just healing one symptom, they heal your whole person.
