About Chinese Medicine
Herbal Medicine: Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are complementary therapeutic modalities that are often used together in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions.
Over the past 5,000 years, Chinese herbology has evolved into an art form of its own. Ancient herbal information was gathered, compiled, formulated, tested, and handed down from generation to generation. Today, practitioners of Chinese medicine continue to prescribe herbs because they are a powerful therapeutic method. A practitioner who makes use of herbs is familiar with most of the 1,800 herbs in the Chinese pharmacopoeia. All of these herbs are classified according to their energetic qualities, functions, and the different organs, meridians, and disharmonies for which they address.
Individual herbs are combined in order to enhance their actions and effects upon the body. When combined, a unique, synergistic formula is created. This combination increases the benefits of a particular formula, and minimizes any harmful side effects.
Chinese herbal medicine can be used to expedite the healing process and strengthen, support, or tonify the body. These formulas have the capacity to address the underlying root cause of various medical conditions, whether acute or chronic. When prescribed and used correctly, Chinese herbal formulas rarely cause unwanted side effects.
