Chinese Herbal Medicine
Used on its own or in conjunction with other TCM techniques, Chinese Herbal Medicine have been in use to treat a variety of disorders for over 5000 years.
The origins of Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) in China can be traced back at least 5000 years, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world.
Chinese herbal medicine is a natural and holistic system of primary health care that is being used by people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds to effectively treat a variety of chronic and acute health problems.
There are more than 450 herbs commonly used in Chinese herbal medicine. Most of them are natural plants. Each herb has its own specific characteristics and particular medical use to treat various diseases, rectifying the over-activity or under-activity of Yin and Yang, and helping restore the body to its normal physiological functions.
A qualified practitioner is able to prescribe a Chinese herbal formula that specifically matches and treats your individual health problem. As your condition changes and improves with treatment, the Chinese herbal treatment is also adjusted and modified until the desired health outcome is achieved.
The prescription of Chinese herbal medicine consists of single herbs or a combined mixture of herbs which take into account the individual therapeutic action of each herb and well as the effects when combined together. A well constructed formula maximises the effectiveness for treating a particular condition, while counteracting and minimising the unwanted effects of an individual herb.
