Chinese medicine improves sleep by restoring balance to the mind and body to break the cycles of stress that inhibit healthy sleep stages and deep rest. Chinese herbal medicine recognizes the value of combining herbs to activate the actions of other botanicals to yield greater therapeutic potency. Specific herbal formulations are also created to focus on the individual aspects of a person, as no two people are alike. It is this adaptability and flexibility that makes Chinese herbal medicine so effective in modern-day, busy lifestyles. Ultimately, Chinese herbs aim to regain balance in the body and to strengthen the body's resistance to ill-health.
