A central feature of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the emphasis on disease prevention in living a healthy life. In TCM, health is built upon the balance of Yin, Yang, Qi and other energies. Chinese herbal tonics are used to maintain such balances, much like how Americans take vitamins to prevent illness.
Herbal tonics represent a major part of Chinese herbal medicines. While the terms like Yin, Yang and Qi remain vague in the modern medicine, studies suggest many herbal tonics may modulate the immune function of our body one way or another. As we know, the immune system basically functions to distinguish substances (like proteins) of ourselves from that of the invaded (like virus) or the diseased (like cancer cells) and to eliminate the bad substances. download Guide PDF
