What are Chinese Herbs?
Chinese herbs are potent remedies derived from plants or animals used to treat various health conditions. Throughout the vast history of Chinese Medicine, certain herbs have been combined with other herbs to make up classic herbal formulas. These formulas are most often used to assist the body’s ability to heal itself. Chinese herbs may take longer to work than pharmaceuticals, but are very safe and have virtually no side effects. Commonly prescribed herbal formulas may function to regulate mood, improve digestion, increase energy, relieve insomnia, treat cold symptoms, relieve asthma, or reduce night-sweats. At ZenMed, your practitioner is a licensed herbologist who has studied hundreds of Chinese herbs and is qualified to prescribe a custom herbal prescription suited to your needs.
