A little bit about Chinese herbal medicine...
Chinese herbal medicine is a medical system that has been evolved empirically over thousands of years. Chinese herbs have many unique properties and functions.The essence of Chinese herbal medicine is in the art of adapting a customized formula to the patient’s own unique disharmony. An adapted formula is a mirror image of the patient’s imbalances and works very well in conjunction with acupuncture in which the harmonization of herbs in a formula is comparable to the balancing of acupuncture points in a treatment. Herbal medicine in conjunction with acupuncture gives the patient the opportunity to extend their healing session at home when between acupuncture treatments. Diagnosing and developing a treatment strategy with an appropriate formula for a patient takes many factors into account and is only advised to be determined by a nationally certified and state licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine. Once a diagnosis is made, a personalized formula is constructed from the thousands of classic herbal combinations and modifications. The most potent and traditional way to take herbal medicine is to cook a customized raw herbal formula much like you would a soup. Another popular format is a customized herbal powder that’s made instantly by mixing with water which suites many people with busy routines. Herbs are also available as other pills, powders, tinctures, teas, or poultices.
Herbal medicine is also categorized into many different groups. One basic group is called “food herbs” which are eaten as part of one’s diet for general fortification, prevention and maintenance. Another basic group is called “medicinal herbs” which are dispensed to each patient as an individual formula based on one’s constitution, environment and medical condition.
To prevent potentially harmful drug-herb interactions, it is required to inform the practitioner and provide a detailed list of any pharmaceuticals, medications, vitamins, supplements or other herbal remedies you are taking or may be using.
It is advised that patience, diligence and consistency in your willingness to heal with herbs is understood. Herbal medicine is natural, pure and takes deep root in your body's healing process, which takes time, but results in reversal of dis-eased conditions and longevity to say the least.
