They have been selected and tested by the greatest masters of Chinese medicine and it is best to enjoy those formulas the way they were intended to be.
Second of all, in Chinese medicine taste and texture contribute to our healing process. Bitter, pungent, sour, sweet and alike are just tastes we are used to. For some reason sweet taste gives many of us the feeling of comfort, and it happens that we abuse sweet foods too often. Sometimes we want to break this pattern and raw herbal teas with their strong taste will do the job. In general, after a person has been taking raw herbs, he or she notices how many new tastes can be discovered, and what seemed unbearable before starts feeling just like a new taste.
Thirdly, taking raw herbs is our chance to get familiar with them at least on some level. It also helps to switch our mindset from "a pill", that will cure us miraculously, to the idea that we have to apply discipline and go through certain conditions to achieve positive changes in our health.
And last, but not the least, it is such an adventurous journey!
This is a small place of healing for a great NY, where we provide acupuncture, Chinese herbs, medical massage, physical therapy and Reiki therapy services.
Thank you for stepping by and may you always be healthy.
