Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is the primary basis of treatment within TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), dating back over 2,500 years. Formulas are written to treat disease, strengthen the body's energy & eliminate factors which are causing sickness.

A formula can be a compilation of anywhere from 2-16 herbs carefully & specifically blended for each person based on their symptoms. Herbs are from vegetable, animal & mineral sources, but are mainly twigs, flowers, leaves, barks & roots.

Herbs may be taken as liquid concentrate, powdered, or granulated to be consumed as a tea. Herbs are also used as liniments, plasters, washes, or creams & are also available in pill form.

Chinese herbal medicine can treat a wide spectrum of diseases; Disorders, such as the flu, common cold, sore throat, or diarrhea or more chronic ailments like gynecological disorders, digestive issues, fatigue, depression, sleep disturbances, blood disorders, degenerative diseases or autoimmune disorders. The aches & pains of exercise or the ageing process can also be successfully supported with the use of Chinese herbs.
