Taiwan herbal medicine is one of the oldest forms of healthcare and constitutes a key role in the development of modern medicine, as we know it today. Back when technology was still unheard of, primitive men utilized the vast flora around them to the fullest extent,
observing both plant and animal life and their components, eventually giving birth to herbal medicine. In a study by the World Health Organization on herbal medicine use, about 80% of the world’s populace still rely on herbal medicine to cure certain ailments and about 74% of the drugs we use today contain at least one botanical element. For instance, Taiwan herbal medicine use of ephedrine to cure respiratory conditions still exists in the present time. Ephedrine remains an active ingredient in most of the commercial drugs that are being prescribed to relieve asthma symptoms.
Taiwan herbal medicine is a major aspect of traditional herbal medicine, which focuses on restoring a balance of energy, body, and spirit to maintain health rather than treating a particular disease or medical condition. Taiwan herbal medicine uses a variety of herbs, in different combinations, to restore balance to the body (see Astragalus, Ginkgo, Ginseng, Green Tea, and Siberian Ginseng). In the United States, Taiwan herbs and herbal formulas may be purchased in health food stores, some pharmacies, and from herbal medicine practitioners.
Taiwan herbal remedies for each particular ailment are made up of one or two herbs that are said to have the greatest effect on major aspects of the problem being treated.
