This book will provide you with instructions on how to create the perfect dishes using various Chinese herbs and spices. Traditionally, herbs are consumed as tea.

Many people who are suffering from chronic ailments take commercially-manufactured drugs. Since those drugs have a negative effect inside the body, they should not be utilized often. Instead of using western medication, there are certain herbs that can remedy pain syndromes, neurological disorders, stress related conditions, heart problems, respiratory conditions, sexual dysfunction, as well as immune system deficiencies. That is why herbal medicine is a safer alternative. In traditional Chinese cuisine, herbal medicine has its place. Various herbs are used not only in the clinic but also in the kitchen. When an illness occurs, Chinese doctors firmly believe that consuming food can actually help. They urge people that using correct herbal medications can cure any form of disease. Various dishes can actually be used in delivering various herbs, especially tonics, into the body. Some potent tonics, such as wolfberry and Ginseng, are therapeutically effective and can be readily absorbed by the stomach when they are mixed with foods such as pork or chicken. This book will provide you with various ways on how to prepare dishes with different herbs.
