Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the main modality or treatment method within Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM. TCM is the world’s oldest, continually practiced, professional medicine. Its written history stretches back not less than 2,500 years and its practice is undoubtedly much older than that. Although acupuncture was the first Chinese modality to gain wide acceptance in the West, Chinese herbal medicine is quickly establishing itself as one of the most popular and effective herbal therapies.

What can Chinese herbal medicine treat?

Chinese herbal medicine treats the full range of human disease. It treats acute diseases, like intestinal flu and the common cold, as well as chronic diseases, such as allergies, gynaecological disorders, autoimmune diseases, chronic viral diseases, and degenerative diseases due to ageing. In particular, Chinese herbal medicine is especially good for promoting the body’s ability to heal and recuperate.
