Chinese Herbal Medicine is an effective, natural, and safe way to restore one’s health without negative side effects that come with virtually every pharmaceutical option. Chinese herbal medicine is one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world, establishing its roots around 5,000 years ago. Over the millennia, it has evolved into a comprehensive approach of treating a vast array of health issues.
In the Chinese Materia Medica, there are hundreds of substances that are utilized. The majority of these are various plants and minerals; many of these herbs that are utilized can likely be found in the majority of kitchens out there: Ginger, Cinnamon, Cloves, Garlic, Turmeric, and Nutmeg are but a few that are found in a great number of herbal formulas. There are others that can be found growing in lawns or gardens: Dandelion, Mums, Peonies (White and Red), and several varieties of (non-poisonous!) mushrooms. In addition, there are various fruits, seeds, roots, berries, and minerals which may be less commonly known, but are important additions to this comprehensive herbal base.
Apart from acupuncture and cupping therapies, herbal medicine is an excellent way for a person to enhance their treatment above and beyond their actual therapy session.
