According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, human health is maintained by the proper balancing of various internal forces and the dynamic equilibrium within the body. When the energy is depleted or when the 'Yin' and the 'Yang' are disturbed, illness occurs. North American ginseng, believed to have the ability to maintain physiological balance and to restore vitality, is therefore considered the most precious herb of all.
