What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?

For over 3,000 years, the Chinese have observed the medicinal effects of thousands of plant,
animal, and mineral substances. Their observations have lead to the development of the world's
most extensive pharmacopoeia of medicinal herbs. Chinese herbs are used to treat many chronic
and acute disorders. Individually prescribed, they are effective and free of harmful side effects.
