While western folk herbalism primarily treats diseases or symptoms, such as headaches, runny nose, menstrual pain, etc. Chinese herbal medicine, when practiced as part of TCM, is based on an individualized pattern diagnosis as well as a disease diagnosis. This means the patient receives a custom written herbal prescription designed to treat both the symptom or disease and also their individual pattern. Such a pattern is made up of a person’s signs and symptoms as well as their emotional temperament and bodily constitution.
