Chinese herbal formulas function differently to pharmaceutical drugs. Pharmaceutical drugs work universally however Chinese herbal medicine is created to suit the individual. This means your lower back pain formula will not likely have the same affect for your friend’s lower back pain.
Herbs come in the form of raw, granules and pills. Our clinic exclusively stocks granules and pills only to save you from cooking. Granules are prepared by mixing it with hot water while pills are can be taken as normal tablets. Granules have a higher potency as opposed to pills although pills are much more convenient to take. There is an earthy taste for granules which may vary from bitter, salty, sweet or sour depending on herb composure.
Most conditions require granules to be ingested 1-2 times per day while pills are 3-4 times a day. This will vary depending on multiple factors such as age, gender, constitution and of course the health concern itself.
