Chinese herbal medicine is typically a mixture of natural herbs, minerals and in some cases animal products (non-endangered species) tailored to treat certain conditions. Chinese herbology recognizes that each herb has its unique taste (pungent, sweet, sour, bitter or salty) and nature (cold, cool, warm or hot). The mixture of a number of different herbs within a herbal formula integrates the taste and nature of each individual herbs, guiding the therapeutic effect of the formula to target organs or meridians. Some formulas aim to strengthen energy and enhance body function, some replenish vital substances, while others might have been designed to relieve pain, remove blockages and metabolic wastes.
