Chinese Herbal Medicine
The origins of Chinese herbal medicine in China can be traced back at least 5,000 years, making it one of the oldest health care systems in the world. The practice of Chinese herbal medicine has become well known around the world and is being used to treat people from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds.
Chinese herbal medicine takes a holistic approach to understand normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
Most diseases or illnesses present with a core set of recognizable signs and symptoms, but the actual presentation of a particular disease or illness will vary from person to person. For this reason, people with similar health conditions may be provided with quite different Chinese herbal medicine prescriptions.
Our practitioners work at prescribing a Chinese herbal formula that specifically matches and treats your individual health problem. As your conditions change and improve with treatment, the Chinese herbal treatment is also adjusted and modified until the desired health outcome is achieved.
In addition to providing treatment for a wide range of health disorders, Chinese herbal medicine may also be used to assist with general health maintenance and disease prevention. By strengthening and enhancing normal body functions, the immune system is boosted and a general sense of well-being promoted.
Herbal powders are used for most conditions in our clinic because they are economic, convenient and not likely to cause adverse effects; except herbal tea is used for weight loss.
