Practitioners provide chinese medicine and herbal remedies using natural elements like: plants, nuts, berries, minerals and the occasionally animal products to create the appropriate formula necessary for each and every patient. Herbs are a very important component of Oriental Medicine healthcare, just like acupuncture.
The formulas can be taken in the form of a pill, as a powder (ground herbs) to be mixed in water, or used raw in a decoction or stew.
Currently at my Loveland acupuncture practice, I provide patent formulas in pill form. I buy my Chinese Medicine locally through the GMP certified, herbal distributor Blue Poppy in Boulder, Colorado.
