“The transformation of passive and active, of yin and yang, in the seasons is the basis of the
growth and destruction of life. The sages were able to cultivate the yang energy in Spring and
Summer and conserve the yin energy in Fall and Winter. By following the universal order, growth
can occur naturally. If this natural order is disregarded, the root of one’s life will be damaged and
one’s true energy will decline.” –The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine (the Neijing Suwen)

How Chinese herbs restore balance
Like acupuncture, herbal therapy addresses unhealthy body patterns. If you’re near Louisville, Meridian Acupuncture is where I have obtained my Chinese Herbs for many years.
“Doing so can restore balance and strengthen your resistance to disease. Here is how Chinese herbs can help:
Cold and flu: They can reduce runny nose and cough and build immunity.
Persistent fatigue: They can increase energy.
Sinusitis: They can reduce nasal congestion and improve breathing.
Diarrhea and constipation: They can improve digestion and regulate bowel movements.
Insomnia: They can improve sleep quality.
Menopause: They can help relieve hot flashes.
Infertility: They can balance hormones to promote healthy cycles.
Cancer treatment: They can reduce side effects from chemotherapy and radiation.
Diabetes: They can help keep prediabetes from becoming diabetes.”
