How is Chinese herbology different from Western traditions?

One of the most significant differences is that in traditional Western Herbology, single herbs are often used. Chinese Herbology primarily uses formulas. Formulas are combinations of herbs that can address a variety of complex complaints. Formulas are written to maximize the effects of the primary herbs while minimizing any possible side effects. At Six Fishes, we specialize in writing custom herbal formulas. Classical formulas are modified to address your complaints.
