Typically, Chinese mixtures contain between six and 16 herbs.
Chinese herbal medicine has been developed over centuries with the specific goal of healing an ailing body naturally. Herbs, combining with acupuncture, can be optimal in achieving the treatment effectiveness. Modern technology has allowed the possibility of making these healing herbs in the forms of capsules and tablets.
