The theory of Chinese herbal medicine is extensive but the basic principle is simple. After reviewing the patient’s history, signs and symptoms, as well as viewing the tongue and feeling the pulse, the TCM doctor diagnoses a “pattern of disharmony,” and then a formula is prescribed to address the disharmony bringing the patient in to balance and health. When the underlying cause of the problem is alleviated the herbs are discontinued.
