It's crucial to note that the specific combination of herbs depends on the individual's unique constitution and the targeted health condition. Herbal formulations in TCM are highly personalized, and it is advisable to consult with a qualified TCM practitioner or herbalist for a tailored approach to your health concerns. Additionally, always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any herbal regimen, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or taking medications.
