    Special Issue on Chinese Herbal Medicine

    Chinese herbal medicine mainly consists of plant medicine (root, stem, leaf, and fruit), animal medicine (viscera, skin, bone, organ, etc.) and mineral medicine. Chinese herbal medicine has Four Natures and Five Flavors. The Four Natures are hot, warm, cool, cold or neutral, in terms of temperature. The Five Flavors are acrid/pungent, sweet, bitter, sour, and salty. Chinese herbal medicine is used in a variety of forms, such as decoction, powder, pill, plaster, wine, tablet, granule, injection and so on.
