The Role of Chinese Medicines in Curing Disease

Chinese herbs have continued to cure human diseases and imbalances for a very long time.

The Chinese herbs can be categorized into the yin and yang. Yin means extremely cold whereas yang stands for extremely hot. On the basis of these two conditions of the human body the herbs are used and implemented. If a person is suffering from intense cold then yang is used to stabilize the body system and imbalance. The five tastes possess special and unique characteristics and include tastes such as bitter, sweet, sour, salty and pungent. Bitter taste is hot in nature and is used to dry the dampness in skin and purge the bowels. In order to tone the body and harmonize it, the sweet tasting nature herbs are utilized. The pungent herbs are used to stabilize the flow of energy in the body and produce sweat. Sour taste is an astringent whereas the salty taste soothes the skin and softens hard areas. The meridians are different in their effectiveness from natural tastes because they affect the organs directly. For example, menthol is effective for both lungs and liver.
