Traditional Chinese Medicine has a holistic view of the human body. In Chinese Medicine the human body is viewed as an interrelated whole (mind, body, spirit) possessing a life force or vital energy called qi or chi (pronounced “chee”). When qi flows freely the body is healthy. When qi is weak or stagnate, symptoms appear; if they are left untreated, disease will develop.
Chinese herbs are botanicals, mineral and organics substances that have their origin on Mainland China.
An herbal treatment plan usually consists of two or three herbal formulas. If the condition is complicated then the practitioner may choose to tailor a formula to the patient’s needs.
The ultimate goal of the treatment is not to replace drugs with herbs but rather to assist the body in the healing process.
Chinese Herbal Medicine excels in treating conditions that Western medicine has difficulty in treating, as well as conditions that do not have a Western medical diagnosis. Chinese herbal medicine can effectively address a wide variety of conditions. Chinese Herbal Medicine has been used for thousands of years in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions.
