How Is Chinese Herbal Medicine Different from Drugs?

Chinese herbal medicine is very different from Western medicine, which usually administers a single drug at a time. But through the centuries, the Chinese have learned which herbs work best to restore the body to a balanced state of health. Whether used alone or with acupuncture treatments, these herbs work with your body. Chinese herbal medicine also doesn’t cause unwanted side effects, like pharmaceutical drugs.
