This book will provide you with instructions on how to create the perfect dishes using various Chinese herbs and spices. Traditionally, herbs are consumed as tea. Since it can easily be absorbed by the body, this is the most common way to consume herbs. However, we can actually mix certain herbs in order to create delicious soups and dishes. If the smell of the tea is pungent, then we can just mix the herbs in various dishes. Generally, it is great to take herbs when you have an empty stomach so if we add them with various dishes, then we will have a very healthy meal. Chinese herbs can bring various benefits to the body; foremost of which is that they can be used in treating chronic diseases. Many people who are suffering from chronic ailments take commercially-manufactured drugs. Since those drugs have a negative effect inside the body, they should not be utilized often. Instead of using western medication, there are certain herbs that can remedy pain syndromes, neurological disorders, stress related conditions, heart problems, respiratory conditions, sexual dysfunction, as well as immune system deficiencies. That is why herbal medicine is a safer alternative. In traditional Chinese cuisine, herbal medicine has its place. Various herbs are used not only in the clinic but also in the kitchen. When an illness occurs, Chinese doctors firmly believe that consuming food can actually help. They urge people that using correct herbal medications can cure any form of disease. Various dishes can actually be used in delivering various herbs, especially tonics, into the body. Some potent tonics, such as wolfberry and Ginseng, are therapeutically effective and can be readily absorbed by the stomach when they are mixed with foods such as pork or chicken. This book will provide you with various ways on how to prepare dishes with different herbs.
