What are the side effects of Chinese herbs?
There are seldom any side effects with Chinese herbs, just the bad taste. A Chinese formula can only make your problem worse if the herbalist got the formula completely wrong, which seldom happens.
Other possible side effects include an upset stomach if you take the herbs on an empty stomach. You should always take herbs an hour after food.
Each Chinese herbal formula is tailor-made to the patient's needs, unlike western pharmaceutical drugs where one size fits all (actually the majority not all).
Everyone is different and so every Chinese herbal formula is different. As it's more suited to the individual's body and their needs they are less likely to cause any side effects.
Pharmaceutical drugs are concentrated, so are fast acting but the down side is they cause side effects.
