Chinese Herbal Medicine & Treatment

Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) constitutes a large part of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which has been practiced in China for more than 5,000 years.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is still a primary therapy in a number of Asian countries, whilst being routinely practiced in parallel with Western medicine in public hospitals in China.

Although CHM is an ancient system of health care, it has undergone continual development over the centuries as the causes of illnesses that afflict mankind have evolved, so has it.

Treatment with Chinese herbal medicine requires an individualised approach; following the initial diagnosis, the herbal formula constructed will be modified at different stages of the patient’s recovery or illness.

Therefore, not one, but several diagnostic and treatment procedures are needed, which differs from the conventional medical approach.

One of the underpinning traditional theories of TCM, is the principle of yin and yang, which provides a rationale for practice.

Yin and yang in TCM can be likened to dynamic balance between anabolic and catabolic processes in the body and organs, whose constant balancing action ensures a healthy functioning body.
