Frequently Asked Questions
What are Chinese herbs and how do they work?
Chinese herbs are nourishing, natural tonic roots, barks, leaves, berries and mushrooms that are used to build or strengthen the major organ systems of the body. They are often referred to as adaptogens because they increase our body-mind's ability to "adapt" to change and help us overcome daily life stress. Chinese herbs help to encourage resistance to trauma, anxiety and fatigue by activating life-force energies and allowing the body to naturally rebuild and rejuvenate itself.
Are traditional Chinese herbal products effective?
With recent popularity of holistic healing, as well as studies proving its effectiveness, we also regularly remind folks that the very same formulas our products are based on have long been respected and successfully used for about 2,500 years by Taoist masters.
Traditional Chinese medicine has undergone some of the most rigorous testing and research of all alternative or complementary therapy options. There is a growing body of solid evidence that suggests Chinese herbal products are safe and effective for the treatment of many conditions. More importantly, Chinese medicine may have much to offer us in the West in terms of things we can do to prevent illness and disease, optimize our health, and enhance our wellbeing.
