Chinese Herbs

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese Herbal Therapy is a very complex system. Chinese Medicine is based upon natural principles and seeks treatment success on a broad, gradual path to bring the patient back into balance. Herbs work more gently and gradually except in acute conditions where immediate resolutions are needed. Acute conditions may see improvement within minutes of ingestion. Chronic conditions may take longer for results to be noticed.

Chinese Medicine allows the practitioner to prescribe herbs to meet the individual needs of each client. TCM has special advantages because of its curative effects and few side effects. With the correct formula, Chinese Herbal Medicine has a very low toxicity compared to even common, over-the-counter Western drugs. When prescribed according to a correct TCM diagnosis, herbs have only beneficial healing results.

Chinese herbal medicine treats the full range of human disease. It can remedy acute diseases such as flu and common cold. It also heals chronic conditions such as allergies, autoimmune disorders, gynecological disorders, insomnia, and many other conditions. Chinese herbal medicine is especially good for promoting the body’s ability to heal and recuperate. Talk with your TCM practitioner if you have further questions. She will be able to provide you with more information about how herbs will work with your condition.

A wide selection of Chinese Herbs are available for sale at the Atwood Acupuncture Center.
