Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal therapy is a major part of TCM clinic that has been exercised for centuries in China, where herbs are measured as fundamental treatment for a lot of sensitive and chronic medical disorders. Herbalists draw from “Materia Medica” a conventional Chinese drug manuscript that covers thousands of minerals, herbs, and other extracts.

This treatment concentrates on restoring a balance of body, energy and spirit to preserve health, instead of treating a particular illness or medical disorder.

What is Chinese Herbal Medicine Used for Today?

The Chinese herbal remedy offered in Live Well Clinic contains Chinese herbs, which are not derived from typical Western concepts of therapeutic diagnosis and treatment. It treats the major health complaints of a patient or the samples of their symptoms rather than the fundamental causes.

This traditional treatment uses a range of herbs, like ginkgo, astragalus, ginseng, eleuthero and green tea in dissimilar combinations to reinstate balance to the human body.

Principle of Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine

As fatigue is caused due to the shortage of Qi, some Chinese herbs nourish the Qi to have an energising effect. As restless sleep, blurry vision, and irritability are caused due to the depleted blood, blood-enriching herbs in the treatment perk up sleep, vision, and equanimity. Since dehydration and dry skin arise from inadequate dampness, these Chinese medicine replenish it and makes the skin softer and alleviates an otherwise voracious thirst.

Herbs used in the therapy help the organ networks in the routine of their jobs.

Some herbal formulas in the treatment deal with ailments, like allergies, colds, cramps, or inflammations, whereas other herbal formulas make body reserves stronger over time.
