ABOUT CHINESE DECOCTIONS:
Geri also mixes individualized Chinese herbal teas for more severe cases where the medicine needs to be tailored to the patient’s constitution and the pathogenic factors affecting them.
Typically, one batch of medicinals is prepared as a decoction, which includes one or two main ingredients that target the illness. Then other ingredients are added to adjust the formula to the patient’s individual disease pattern. Ingredients are also added in order to cancel out toxicity or side-effects of the main ingredients; on top of that, some medicinals require the use of other substances as catalysts. . Overall, the balance and interaction of all the ingredients are considered more important than the effect of a single ingredients.
