Chinese herbal medicine generally involves combining a number of herbs into a formula to treat a specific disease pattern. The herbs are often combined to produce a synergistic effect as well as to help reduce side effects that may occur if a single herb is administered by itself.

This strengthening action is thought to assist in generating optimal health and healing within the animal
