Herbal Chinese medicine
Herbal medicine is practiced by both modern medicine and many traditional medicines in different countries. Currently, the term phytotherapy is increasingly used, derived from the ancient Greek words φυτόν (plant) and θεραπεία (therapy). This is a broad method of treating diseases based on the use of medicinal plants and preparations from them.
Before resorting to herbal medicine, it is necessary to consult with a medical specialist.

Why do they move away from synthetics to herbs or are they treated with them at the same time? The reasons are as follows.
there is no result from taking synthetic drugs
there are results, but a lot of side effects
medicines from the pharmacy are too expensive
Another factor is the increased confidence in herbal formulas due to the process of patenting classic herbal formulas. Thanks to a large number of clinical and experimental studies, many Chinese classic formulas are now being turned into patented medicines because of their effectiveness, safety and convenience.
Currently, there is a division of herbal medicine into traditional herbal medicine and botanical medicine. Traditional herbal medicine is an integral part of traditional medicine, for example, Chinese. Botanical medicine is an adjunct to science-based modern medicine. Here, natural medicines are not used independently, but more often as an addition to general treatment with the use of modern means. In China, the line between modern medicine and traditional medicine is less clear than in Western countries.
Herbal treatment is especially widespread in Tibetan medicine and in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Of the three components of TCM, phytotherapy is the least criticized by Western medical scientists. Moreover, a deep scientific study of the chemical composition of medicinal herbs gives impetus to the development of new modern medicines.
This site discusses the properties of not only the most famous and effective natural sources of health, for example, ginseng, Reishi mushrooms, Spirulina algae, but also many others. Some of them are amenable to cultivation and can be grown in subsidiary farms, in garden plots, in greenhouses and even in apartments. Grown — it does not mean to be treated with them immediately. You can make a decision about treatment only with the approval of a doctor.
Before resorting to herbal medicine, it is necessary to keep in mind the following.
In some Chinese medicine clinics, individual herbal medicines are prepared for the patient’s diagnosis. At the same time, you need to be careful, ask questions to the doctor about each component in order not to get an allergic reaction or unnecessarily included expensive grass.
Some Chinese herbal remedies are poisonous. For medicinal purposes, they are used in very small doses, in which they do not harm the body, but benefit. All this can be determined only by a qualified doctor.
Some of the herbs when interacting with pharmacy medications may have serious side effects or may be unsafe for people with certain diseases. For example, ephedra herb has been linked to serious health complications, including heart attacks and strokes. In 2004, the sale of food products containing ephedra was banned in the United States, but the ban did not apply to TCM preparations.
Some medicinal herbs are dangerous for those who take blood thinners because they can increase the risk of bleeding.
Some medicinal herbs enhance the effects of Western drugs, while others act as antagonists. Therefore, you need to contact a phytotherapist who has knowledge in both European and traditional Chinese medicine.
Herbs can also be dangerous if a person takes antidiabetics, contraceptives, immunosuppressants or undergoes interferon therapy.
In phytotherapy, monitoring is important. Good blood circulation indicates that doses reach therapeutic levels without causing side effects. Monitoring of liver and kidney function provides information on whether the body metabolizes herbs well or poorly.
