Herbs are mostly made of leaves, flowers, tree bark and plant seeds. These work closely with Jingluo as well. Herbs targets organs inside the body directly when taken, organs would absorb the herb and take it to areas around the body through Jingluo.
There are two different type to herbal remedies.
The ingredients inside the tables have been traditionally passed on from generations to the next with little changes to them. Thus, you would find a lot of the tablets' recipes to be exactly the same as thousands of years ago.
Tablets are ready made and had to be taken with water, usually 3 tablets in the morning, half hour before breakfast and 3 in the evening, half hour after dinner.
Currently, most herbal medicines are made into herbal powders. The powder form of herbs has only been introduced a few years back. Traditionally, the herbs are mixed and boiled in water. The herbs would then be filtered out and you'll drink the water which would taste bitter.
But nowadays, new technology has been developed so that the herbs are made into powders but the nature of the herbs has not been lost in any ways.
The doctor will mix different herbs together recording to your conditions.
He will also tell you how much you'll need to take each day. All you need to do is to put the powder in a cup of boiling water and drink it! It would taste a bit like coffee depending on what herb is in it. But it will taste much better than the traditional boiled herbs!
Powders usually work much better than tablets and are recommended if the conditions are serious and need urgent treatments.
