Traditional Chinese Medicine

 

Chinese Herbal Therapy

Chinese Herbal Therapy is a system of prescribing medicinal herbs in accordance with Traditional Chinese medical patterns. A combination of multiple herbs are selected by the practitioner, and can be modified according the each patients' individual needs. This allows for maximal flexibility during the course of treatment as the patients' condition changes. Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that the herbs restore the Vital Substances (Qi, Blood, Essence, and Body Fluids) to their natural quality and state.

Traditional Chinese medicine uses herbal medicine to treat a wide number of ailments. There are over 400 different kinds of herbs commonly used for health care. They derive from grasses, flowers, roots, leaves, bark and other substances. The doctor will choose a variety of different herbs to make a formula based on the patients' symptoms or will prescribe a patent formula for the specific problems. Chinese herbal supplements were the mainstream medical practice for much of the China's history and has been used to save many lives.

During the course of your treatment, we may find it useful to prescribe an herbal supplement. Chinese herbs are always combined together in a group called a formula. Your herbal formula would be based on classical formulas and then adapted for you based on your particular symptoms. Herbs can be made into a tea but they can also be in granulated form, pill form, or externally applied.

Acupuncture works to balance the climate in your body. It calms or stimulates the system. Traditionally acupuncture and herbs are often used together to enhance the treatment outcomes. Chinese herbs can help you and are gentler than western pharmaceuticals so generally you won't have the same kinds of toxic side effects you can experience with western pharmaceuticals.
