The Jade Path and Classical Herbal Formulas
Herbal medicine has been an integral part of Chinese culture and medical practice for thousands of years. It largely consists of natural medicines, namely from herbal, animal and mineral substances.
There are many forms in which to deliver herbal medicines. A water decoction, or soup, is the most traditional and widely used technique where herbs are boiled in hot water and then the liquid is separated from the herbs and then drank.
At Jade Path our formulas are typically in granule form, which means the herbs are ground into a fine powder. All that needs to be done is add hot water and drink it like a tea. We also offer some herbal medicines in pill or tablet form. Your board certified herbalist will discuss these options with you to create an herbal formula to address your current and individual needs.
