chinese herbal medicine


(Herbal medicine is amazing!)

The herbal tradition in Chinese medicine is one of the most highly developed, and long standing traditions in the world. Most people associate Chinese medicine with acupuncture, but herbal medicine is of equal importance.

The art of creating a balanced Chinese herbal formula can be compared to making a cake. We add salt to baked goods to balance out the sweetness.

In this same way differnt herbs are added to formulas to balance and maximize the potency of the therapeutic goal. This tradition of balancing the herbal properties within the formulas is why Chinese herbalism gets such amazing results with very limited side effects.

Herbs can include leaves, berries, roots, minerals, and flowers. Smijin's formulas are vegan.
