About Chinese Healing Herbs

For thousands of years, various cultures have used natural plant derived substances as medicine. The Chinese have taken herbal medicine to the highest level of "art form", the efficacy of which has, in recent years, being proven by science-based testing in laboratories around the world.

Herbs taken in various forms including decoctions of pills and encapsulated powders form an important part of the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine along with Acupuncture, diet, Tui Na and Tao Yin.

Treatment strategies vary but generally the traditional Chinese medical practitioner will seek to deal with the underlying cause of a problem. Getting at the cause is not always possible in the early stages of treatment particularly as symptoms will often "mask" the underlying condition.

For this reason, treatment strategies often involve a two-fold approach of treating the symptom and the apparent cause at various times and stages of the treatment cycle; this may be likened to the concept of "approaching the son to get to the father".

From this herbal “lore” has evolved a sophisticated industry, a product of which is the development of tried and tested Herbal Formulas which are known to be safe and effective for specific ailments.

The Chinese medicines we sell in our retail on-line shop are formulated to be appropriate for the general public. Generally, Chinese medicines nourish and support organic function with wholesome natural materials and will not by their very nature and mild dosage cause harm. However it has been established that many types of natural medicines and particularly Chinese medicines do have interactions with pharmaceutical drugs which may be negative.

If you are taking pharmaceutical drugs, check with your TCM practitioner or your GP before taking Chinese medicine. If you take Chinese medicine and experience any unpleasant or negative side effects, stop taking it immediately and consult your healthcare practitioner.
