    For centuries Chinese have been using these techniques to heal the body,soul and mind. The four natures, five tastes, and the meridians are the three most commonly used methods when practicing Herbal Medicine, but they are not the only three used. Even though the practice of medicine is becoming for advanced, Herbal Medicine is still used in China today.

    When you are running, do you get cramps in your sides? Sometimes, they hurt so bad that you have to stop running. Surprisingly, the cramps in your side aren't really there, it's just your brain sending messages to your body. Your brain sends these messages to protect you, so that you don't hurt yourself. In China, doctors tried to heal sick people by helping them to use their brain to tell their body that they didn't feel any pain. This way of healing someone is called mind-body medicine, where you think very hard, and relax, and try to imagine that the pain you are feeling is not really there. Mind-body medicine has been around for hundreds of years, it was first discovered in China. Mind-body medicine can be performed by thinking very hard that you are not in pain, and eventually, your brain will believe you, and you won't be in pain anymore.

    There are many ways that you can try and do mind-body medicine. One of these ways is to relax, be alone in a very quiet room, lay down with your eyes closed, and focus very hard. You need to think about your body, and think about the part that hurts, and imagine that it doesn't hurt, and keep thinking that. If you think hard enough, it is believed, that the pain will not be there anymore.

    There are many ways to try and heal someone, one tradition is very common in the Chinese Culture. Some people do not believe in the fact that twigs, flowers,and herbs could heal someone, but the Chinese strongly believe in Herbal Medicine. Herbal Medicine is an ancient Chinese method that is the art of combining different types of medical herbs. There are three different methods: the four natures, the five tastes, and the meridians. The practice behind herbal medicine is much more complex than people think, because there are many different types of herbs used.

    The four natures is the first method in herbal medicine. The four natures come from the four seasons. The four different seasons are so different yet they are all beautiful. You combine many different type of herbs such as a hot herb with one that would make you cold. " The four natures also consists from yin and yang also known as the yin yang sign. Yang is the hot you need and yin is the cold. Everyone needs a balance." (Adams)

    The third group that has to do with herbal medicine is the meridians. The Chinese discovered and identified twelve acupuncture meridians where the energy travels in the human body. Meridians also have to do with yin and yang like the four natures. The meridian technique has may different techniques to it. " The meridian cycle you can use the study of acupuncture, the meridian wheel, the meridian body clock, and the movement of Ch'i" (Kerrie Broe) The meridian clock, wheel, and movement of Ch'i all connect together. The Chinese saying is that the movement of Ch'i follows a daily routine. The routine is known as a daily clock-like-pattern. Which makes herbal medicine easier to follow, with this clock and wheel people that are not professionals in herbal medicine can figure out which herbs and spices goes with whatever disease or symptoms the patient has.

    The five tastes is the second group that has to deal with herbal medicine. These tastes were founded by a chinese doctor named Ehuag who dedicated his life to the study of medicine. "The five tastes are pungent, sweet, sour, bitter, and salty." ( V. E. Tyler) They use these different tastes to figure out what type of sickness or disease you have. They are sorted and then your treatment is placed. If someone was having heat rashes spread throughout their body a doctor would apply the pungent sense. The most common thing a doctor would do if they had a patient with this would be to apply the herb called Calendula or borage.
