For the herbalist!
WITH ACTIVE TABLE OF CONTENTS
In China the use of herbs is mainly based on the balance of yin (feminine, cold) and yang (masculine, hot). So if there is excess heat in the body, cooling herbs would be ingested or applied, and so on. Balance is brought to the body in this way.
In ancient times, herbs were the main source of healing. The practice of healing with herbs was then tried to be outlawed in America and the U.K. However in the 1930s, over 90 per cent of medicine directly descended from herbs.
Herbalism aims to bring balance and health back to the body, restoring health and promoting healing. The herbalist will take an overall look at healing, in a holistic manner. Balance of lifestyle and diet will also be taken into account.
