I try herbs when I can. I don't like to take prescription meds too much because they have so many side effects. I know some of the herbs do but I don't think as bad. Plus I don't like going to the doctor.

I am in to all the all natural meds. I don't think I have ever tried the chinese ones. I would not even know where to buy them.

This is an imagine from my country,Romania - This is an  imagine from my country,Romania,the country where you can find sea,the only sea from Romania,The Black Sea,and many mountains,the most famous mountains from Romania are Carpatii.They are in the middle of Romania.Romanian nation is very proud of all that,and most important in our country is The Castle of Dracula.
Yes,I like that and I think that is better than another ways to be healthy. The chinese nation is very smart and all things that do,do with all heart and is very well. Have a nice day!!

I would prefer to use Eastern Medicine over Western Medicine. I wish there was more available to us. But the pharmacuetical companies have serious control over medicine in the USA.

I thing that Chinese are the best in medicine. They invented the most medicine they were the first to understand how the human body works.I heard that Chinese were a head of the rest of the world until they have been concured and all their knowlige had spred to the entire world. I all so heard that every desise that you have the Chinese has a cure of three days.

I'm really interested in Chinese medicine. I was really unset though. There is a chinese medicine 'shop' that has opened up in our local shopping mall, and I went in there and asked if they mahe anything for migraines. The man handed me something, and I asked him if it was purely herbal (i.e. no animal ingredients - becaue I'm vegetarian). He suddenly became very unfriendly and said 'yes of course'. I was alarm4ed by his change of attitude, and asked if I could read the ingredients, which he then almost threw at me. I saw on them something that looked like some animal semen?! Do you have any idea what this could be? Anyway I really wasn't pleased at his attitude to me just enquiring about the ingredients, so am never going back there! I may well still give other Chinese Herbalists a try though.

there are a lot of chinese traditional medicines or even newly developed medications that are out here in the philippines. and basically i think most of them are really great. but really you have to be careful on some you have to know if it has an original patent because there are some fake that isnt really effective and might be dangerous

I have never used chinese medicine but I have tried Tongan medicine which is nearly the same as you say they use herbs like the chinese do that is why there are so many that live there now and I do know that it is bitter but the main thing is that it make you better.

I never had a chance to try chinese medicine before, so I can't say for sure.
