Chinese herb came to the U.S. together with the first generation of Chinese immigrants in the 1800's [1,2]. It has saved many American's lives in the past over 100 years. However, many Americans still doubt about its efficacy and worry about its side effects or drug-herb interaction. One of our tasks is to provide education about effective and safe application of Chinese herbs.
Most of the research results on Chinese herbs performed by scientists over the world using modern chemical, biological and pharmacological methods in the past decades all
supported the functions of Chinese herbs. And more and more results coming out every year are helping explore the therapeutic mechanisms of Chinese herbs.
Our inability to well explain some of the mechanisms of herbal therapies currently is not because herbs are too old, it is because our knowledge about human body and diseases are still limited so far.
