Chinese herbal medications are made from plant and animal extracts and can include herbal oils, tonics, pills and powders. Chinese medicine is based on the philosophical concept of opposing but complementary life forces within the body. These forces, known as Yin and Yang, must be balanced to achieve good health. The Chinese use herbal medicine, acupuncture, acupressure and T'ai chi to treat ill-health. Photographed in Hanoi, Vietnam.
