How does herbs work?

The medicinal use of herbs is one of the six key tenets of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Like body treatments, herbal therapy is used to treat illness and ailments, the prevention of disease, and the overall balance of health and energy.

 

Here at Komorebi, Dr. Cassis My Linh offers herbal therapy as part of your treatment plan.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbology consists of over 365 herbs. Each of these herbs is understood and categorized by various factors -- its specific temperature, taste, which meridian (channel) it enters, as well as its therapeutic action and the role it plays in the function and wellbeing of specific organs. 

 

Herbal therapy can come in the form of:

 

  • Anti-inflammatories

  • Digestives

  • Diaphoretics (cleansing through sweat)

  • Internal warmers

  • Diuretics (cleansing through urine)

  • Relaxants

  • Tonics

 

Chinese herbs are made up of the steam, root, flower, and leaf of a plant, as well as some minerals and animal products. Typically coming in the form of capsules, each herbal formula is a blend of specific herbs working together to treat various ailments. The herbs used in each formula work together to stimulate the body into healing and balance.

How are herbs used? 


By considering these factors as well as the health of the patient, TCM practitioners will select a customized formula to prescribe their patient. You’ll be instructed on how often to take your herbal pills, and for how long.

 

Over the course of your treatment plan, your practitioner will observe how your condition changes and how your body reacts, adjusting your formula and dosage as needed.

 

Herbal therapy is often paired with acupuncture treatments, but can also be used alone.
