Chinese Herbal Medicine
has been practiced for thousands of years at a high level of expertise. Ancient herbalists used highly-developed diagnosis techniques to form specific differentiations for diseases. They recorded the results of their treatments, and, over time, created formulas for a wide variety of ailments.
Therefore, herbal therapy is an alternative to prescription medicine, and can allow many people to achieve their health care goals without the downside of extremely high expenses and the growing problem of multiple side effects. We use combinations of herbs that act to relieve the patient of exhibited symptoms creating few to no side effects. The advantage that Chinese herbalism has over biomedicine is that the formula can be adjusted for every patient. For instance, if you were given a particular formula and displayed a slightly objectionable side effect, the practitioner would adjust the formula to eliminate the complications without changing the healing aspect of the formula. In biomedicine, if the patient reacts badly to a medicine, the doctor must change to a different medicine, which may have the same types of side effects.
Herbal medicine is one of' great strengths, and can considerably boost the healing response in combination with other traditional treatments.
