Herbal Medicine has been perfected for superior healing effects with minimal side effects, and can be taken in three basic forms:
- Tea Form
- Granules Form
- Pill Form
The most effective form is to boil raw herbs, which can then be taken orally as a tea. The second most effective form is to have the tea made into a granules form. The most convenient form is prepared as an herbal formula in pill form. It seems that the most effective forms are the least convenient. However, the most important aspect of any medicine is that it can be taken as needed. In this respect, most patients prefer powders or pills. Traditional Asian Herbal Medicines are natural and can be effective alternatives to refined pharmaceuticals.
