Chinese Herbal Medicine

Along with Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine makes up the system of traditional chinese medicine which dates back some 3500 years. Chinese medicine believes in 2 equal but opposite life forces: "yin" (female, receptive, dark, cold, unconscious), and "yang" (male, active, light, hot, conscious). The interaction between these two forces gives rise to the "life force" or Qi. Qi must flow freely in the body for health. Any blockage or imbalance in the Qi results in ill health. Chinese Herbal Medicine aims to restore the balance through the use of herbal remedies. Each herb has a particular attribute or "inclination" and it is the manipulation of these inclinations that bring about balance.

Chinese Herbal Medicine can be used to treat the following conditions:
acne, addictions, anxiety, asthma, childhood diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome, coeliac disease, depression, dysmenorrheoa, eczema, hayfever, IBS, immune disorders, indigestion, ME, menopause, menorrhagia, pain, peptic ulcers, PMS, respiratory conditions, stress.

You are recommended to seek advice of a qualified health practitioner. To find a qualified practitioner in your area look in the Practitioner Directory.
