Chinese medicinal herbs. Assortment of Chinese herbs for use in making herbal teas and medicines. Chinese medicine uses various parts of plants and vegetable matter to promote health and treat symptoms. It is based on the theory that there is a universal life force. This force manifests itself in the body as two complimentary qualities known as yin and yang. An imbalance in yin or yang will cause disease. Chinese medicine aims to identify which of yin or yang is deficient in an ill person, and restore the balance.
