Herbal remedies can effectively treat many of the same diseases, injuries, or pains as western medicine. However, it is important to note the difference between taking herbal formulas versus a drug. It is crucial to understand the difference between the Chinese herbal approach and ingesting the whole plant or animal substance. Chinese medicine follows nature’s way and seeks treatment success on a broader, more gradual path.
