About Traditional Chinese Herbs
Traditional Chinese herbs encompasses the use of different parts of plants, such as the leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and seeds. These plant parts are often used as a tea, decoctions, extracts, made into capsules or even a footbath. These bulk herbs should be regarded as an added feature to modern western healthcare, and not as a replacement. Chinese traditional herbs (sometimes used as teas) emphasize harmony and balance. We encourage you to educate yourself on herbs and supplements by researching reputable sites and books. Have an open discussion with your physician on what will be most beneficial for your health issues. Discuss the possible interactions of herbs and pharmaceuticals with your pharmacist or physician.
"Yin Chen must be harvested for its aerial part in spring to exhibit pharmacologic effects. An old saying, “Yin Chen can be used as Yin Chen for treating diseases in February, but can only be used as lumber for burning in May (二月茵陳三月蒿,五月茵陳當柴燒)”, indicates huge difference in bioactive component contents of Yin Chen Hao in different seasons."1
