Understanding Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine
It doesn’t take a complete understanding of Traditional Chinese herbal medicine to know that it works. Drawing on ancient practices, herbal medicine is as old as humanity itself. Early human beings were hunter-gatherers whose survival depended on knowledge of their environment. Direct experience taught them which plants were toxic, which plants imparted strength and sustained life, and which had special healing qualities. These early discoveries were passed along until thousands of years and millions of human trials brought about the evolution of an incredibly sophisticated system of diagnosis and herbal medicine.
