About Chinese Herbal Medicine
Over the past 5,000 years, Chinese herbs have been used in tandem with acupuncture to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. Each herb is classified according to its energetic qualities and functions, and the different organs, meridians, and disharmonies it addresses. Multiple individual herbs are then compiled into formulas, creating a synergistic effect that enhances the formula’s effects on the body while minimizing harmful side effects. Herbal formulas are carefully applied to fit each patient’s specific constitution, which is determined by looking at signs and symptoms during an acupuncture treatment.
Herbal formulas can be ingested in a number of ways, from raw herbs that are boiled like teas, to ground herbs placed in capsules or given in the form of pills or powders. Some, however, are used topically in creams or oils, and some can be diffused (like essential oils).
Chinese herbal medicine can be used to expedite the healing process, and to strengthen, support, or tonify the body. These formulas have the capacity to address the underlying root cause of various medical conditions, both acute and chronic. Chinese herbal medicine is a safe, effective and drug-free way to become well and stay healthy naturally.
