Chinese Herbology

CHINESE HERBOLOGY

INTRODUCTION
Chinese herbs have been relied upon for the healing of ailments for thousands of years. The focus of herbalism is to support the body’s self healing ability. Herbs nourish us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When we take herbs the essence enters the acupuncture meridian and adjusts the vital flow of energy in the body. Chinese herbs are derived from plant, animal, and mineral sources. The energetic classification of herbs is a science which has been refined over the last 3000 years. Today, we see further refinement due to the changing profile of disease.

HERBAL FORMULATIONS
As the knowledge of single herbs increased, physicians refined herbology by combining herbs in formulas. This art can only be accomplished after one knows extensively the properties of the single herbs. When herbs are combined, the synergy enhances the scope of the therapeutic effect. A carefully balanced recipe of several different herbs is specifically tailored for each person’s entire health condition.

HERBAL PRESCRIPTIONS
All herbs prescribed by the physicians are intended for the patient that they are given to and never should be taken by anyone other than who they have been prescribed for.

HERB SAFETY
Good manufacturing practices (GMP) are production and testing practices that helps to ensure a quality product. Many countries have legislated that manufacturing and distributing companies must follow GMP procedures. Basic concepts of all of these guidelines have the goal of safeguarding the health of the patient as well as producing good quality products. In the U.S. a drug or supplement may be deemed adulterated if it has passed all of the specifications tests but is found to be manufactured in a condition which violates current good manufacturing guideline. Therefore, complying with GMP is a mandatory aspect in herb supplement manufacturing.  GMP’s are enforced in the United States by the U.S. FDA

The herbal supplement manufacturing plant and suppliers that our company uses are full scale GMP certified.  The herbal supplement pills that are manufactured specifically to Dr. Ni’s formulas are inspected and tested by the U.S. FDA in order to ensure the safety of our patients.
