Chinese Herbal Medicine is Especially Good for Promoting the Body's Ability to Heal and Recuperate
Herbal Medicine is the main modality or treatment method within Traditional Chinese medicine. The origins of Chinese herbal medicine in China can be traced back at least five thousand years, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world. 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 alternative therapies in the West.
Chinese herbal medicine is a natural and holistic system of health care that is being used effectively to treat a wide range of chronic and acute fertility imbalances.
It treats acute diseases, like intestinal flu and the common cold, as well as chronic diseases, such as allergies, gynecological disorders, autoimmune diseases, chronic viral diseases, degenerative diseases due to aging and many more.
Chinese Herbal Medicine - A Holistic Approach
Chinese herbal medicine takes a holistic approach to understanding normal body function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
A qualified practitioner is able to prescribe a Chinese herbal formula that specifically matches and treats your individual health problem. As your condition changes and improves with treatment, the Chinese herbal treatment is also adjusted and modified until the desired health outcome is achieved.
Today, there are over 450 substances commonly used in Chinese herbal medicine - most are of plant origin though some animal and mineral substances may also be used. You may find some in your kitchen, such as ginger, garlic and cinnamon.
