Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is different to other forms of herbalism because it focuses on patterns of imbalance in the whole person, and seeks the root causes that underlie symptoms. Chinese herbalism is an ancient tradition known for its delicately balanced herbal formulas, which aim to use the minimal amount to ingredients for the best healing impact with no side effects. Ingredients used are familiar to many people today and used in cooking, such as barley, spring onion, mint, liquorice and ginger.
This form of herbalism can be part of an integrated approach alongside acupuncture. While Chinese acupuncture may be given on a weekly basis, herbal medicines rely on daily dosages. It is good value as a week’s supply costs £25.
