How Herbal Medicine works
The practice of Chinese herbal medicine is an art, for the combination
of herbs into just the right formula takes a significant amount
of skill and knowledge. A formula may contain up to 10-15 herbs.
Each formula consists of a chief herb, a few herbs to assist, and
a courier herb to take the medicine to the site of the "lesion".
Each herb in the formula has a different role, working synergistically
with the others to bring about the therapeutic effect.
For example, the "chief herb" is the most important ingredient
and holds the therapeutic focus of the entire formula. The deputy
assists the chief in its duties by supplementing the focused approach
or by treating secondary conditions. The assistant may foster the
synergistic workings of the formula or assist in the prevention
of possible toxic side effects, while the envoy may direct the formula
to a specific body area or harmonize the actions of the other ingredients.
Chinese herbal medicine is traditionally used for internal organ
imbalances. It is often used as a complement to acupuncture, and
the two are often used in the same treatment. Each system affects
Qi of the body in specific ways. In many instances, herbal remedies
are used to supplement the body's Qi, and acupuncture is used to
manipulate Qi, focusing it where it is needed.
