Chinese Medicine is thousands of years old. Chinese herbal medicine is the most comprehensive pharmacological system in the world. When properly formulated and prescribed, Chinese herbal medicines are safe and very effective. Like all things consumed, improper or abusive use can contribute to unwanted side effects.
Commonly used Chinese herbal formulas for acute infectious diseases are based on ancient prescriptions with a proven track record. Chinese herbal medicines are safe because they are formulated with "helper" herbs to mitigate possible side effects from the stronger herbs in the formula that initiate the healing response to a disease.
When illness is acute in nature, the symptoms of infection are commonly experienced. Acute infections can be quickly, safely and effectively treated with broad-spectrum immune stimulating Chinese herbs. Most Chinese herbs have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Formulas for acute infections are designed to address a wide range of acute symptoms including fever, chills, pain, inflammation, cough, congestion, nausea, diarrhea, indigestion, rash and allergic reactions. The acute care Chinese herbal formulas on this website are similar to over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical medications purchased without prescription at a drugstore.
