Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine

The term "herbal medicine" is somewhat misleading in that, while plant elements are by far the most commonly used substances in TCM and other non-botanic substances are used as an animal, human, and mineral products are also utilized. Thus, the term "medicinal" (instead of herbal) is usually preferred. The herbal medicine traditional categorizations and classifications that can still be found today are 4 natures: hot, warm, cool, or cold and hot and warm herbs are used to treat cold diseases, while cool and cold herbs are used to treat heart diseases.
