Chinese herbal therapy treats a full range of human diseases such as digestive disorders, insomnia, arthritis, allergies, headaches, flu, and the common cold. According to Chinese clinical studies, the more than 300 Chinese herbs that are commonly used can greatly increase the effectiveness of modern drug treatments and reduce side effects. In some cases, herbs have been used to replace modern drugs completely.
