How can Herbal Remedies help you?
The benefits of Chinese herbal remedies have been developed and studied for over three thousand years. Many therapeutic remedies are primarily plant based, but some include minerals or animal products. There are many ways they can be prepared and absorbed – often as granules, powder, lotions or tablets, depending on the nature of the herb and its intended use. With thousands of years of research behind all kinds of different herbs, we now are able to use the different properties to balance particular parts of the body. By using the Yin Yang and Meridians theory in TCM, we believe that each of the herbs have the ability to function effectively in certain Meridians or organs.
Before prescribing a particular herb or concoction of herbs, the practitioner’s diagnosis has to take into account the state of the patient’s Yin and Yang, and the elements that are governing the affected organs. In-depth diagnosis of the patient ensures that the correct herbal prescription is provided, resulting in the restoration of an imbalanced condition and treatment of sickness.
With the use of the 4 diagnostic methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine, practitioners are able to use the information the body presents us to come up with a formula that is useful for the patient. As well as physical, olfactory, and spiritual inspection, the pulse is read in multiple different areas, to help identify any excesses or deficiencies, diagnose the body constitution, and discover the best herbal remedy route to take.
