These are premade by manufacturers and are the most economical forms of herbal formulas. Teapills are a combination of herbal extracts that are formed into small pea-sized balls. Formulas that come in teapills are some of the most commonly used formulas in Chinese Medicine.
Formulas in this category tend to be more potent due to the lack of binding agents found in teapills. Granules are formed by binding decocted liquid herbal concentrate into powder, often powdered herbs or potato starch. This form of herb is still convenient but the tradeoff is tasting herbs directly. Some formulas can be difficult due to bitterness of herbs in them. Manufacturers often provide an encapsulated form to mitigate this drawback.
Same as patent granules but the formula is customized to the patient’s needs. The practitioner often add or remove herbs or modify ratio of herbs accordingly. This is ideal for those who have sensitivities or allergies to medication in general. Custom formulas are often more expensive but many people find it to be more effective. Like patent granules, the formula can be encapsulated for additional cost.
Raw herbs is the most traditional and potent form of herbal medicine. The pharmacies put the herbs together in an unaltered form for the patients to take home and decoct it at home. It can be inconvenient and our pharmacy at Kamwo provides the service of decocting it and vacuum seals each dose individually. Like granules, it comes in both patent forms and custom.
