Harnessing the healing powers of plants and minerals
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete holistic medical system which aims to prevent illness and maintain health by improving the flow of blood and oxygen throughout the body. One of the methods used to achieve this is through the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine. This form of herbalism is one of the most sophisticated herbal systems in the world. Herbs include roots, stalks, leaves, barks and minerals. There are over 400 individual herbs to choose from depending on the condition to be treated.
Uses of Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese Herbalism can be applied safely to treat almost any condition with excellent results. One of the reasons Chinese Herbalism is so successful is its ability to diagnose the underlying causes and treat them accordingly. Although symptoms are important they are simply only sign posts to an underlying pathology. For example, two patients presenting with insomnia may receive completely different herbal formulas. One may have a deficiency of blood, the other may have a stagnation of liver energy. In both cases the treatment strategy is completely different and the use of herbs is not limited to the therapeutic effect of improving sleep but in fact they can address the underlying reasons for the symptoms.
Some of the most popular conditions treated with herbal medicine include: insomnia, depression, anxiety, pain relief, sports injuries, menstrual problems, menopausal symptoms, arthritis, chronic fatigue, fybromyalgia, and both male and female infertility.
