Chinese herbal medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is a system of health care that originates from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and has been used for thousands of years to prevent disease and cure illnesses.

According to TCM treatment, each herb has an action, a flavour and enters certain internal organs. A herbal prescription will often contain between 6-12 different plants that work with each other to treat the health problem. Herbs can work to boost the body’s vital energy, balance the mind and body and can be anti-inflammatory.

Chinese herbs work differently to western medicine drugs as they are holistic. Chinese herbs are natural so take time to work but then have less side effects.
