Why did my acupuncturist recommend herbs?

Herbs are a powerful adjunct to acupuncture care. Many believe that Chinese herbs can treat on a much deeper level than acupuncture. Herbs are used to strengthen, build and support the body or to clear it of excess problems like a cold, fever or acute pain. Your practitioner may suggest starting with herbs and then adding acupuncture to your treatment in the future. This is suggested to build up your internal strength so you can receive the full benefits acupuncture has to offer. The word “herb” can be confusing to someone new to Chinese Medicine. Chinese herbs are made of up not only plant material, but also common food, mineral and animal material as well.
