Lao Zi



Chinese herbs work at an organic level and are especially effective in treating so-called ’emptiness syndromes’ such as fatigue and chronic complaints. Chinese herbal formulas have been used for medical purposes for thousands of years. The first Chinese Materia Medica Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing dates from the first century BC. Since then, numerous doctors have dedicated their lives to the development of herbal formulas. To this day, millions of people use Chinese herbs for numerous ailments.
