Herbs function synergistically to treat dis-ease in the body and promote health. Two key characteristics in herbal therapy are taste and temperature. The taste refers to the perception of the herb in the mouth and the temperature describes the sensation of the herb in the stomach or on the skin. The properties of herbs provide its uniqueness and the effect it will have on the body.
For example: Gan Cao (Licorice Root) has a sweet taste and neutral temperature in its unprepared form. The taste and temperature of Gan Cao changes to sweet and warm when it is dry-fried. Gan Cao travels to all aspects of the body chiefly the Heart, Lung, Spleen and Stomach. Gan Cao is known for its tonifying properties providing soothing energy to the spleen, it moistens the lungs, moderates, harmonizes and drains fire.
