Chinese herbal medicine has been used for centuries. It is still used in many countries today as the first and most effective treatment for ailments.
Traditional herbal medicine used raw herbs that had been boiled in water. The broth was then reduced to extract the active ingredients. The liquid tea was then sipped. Modern herbal medicine doesn’t include raw herbs. There are other methods to use herbal medicine.
