Are you fed up with taking pharmaceutical drugs? Are you tired of feeling tired all the time from taking those drugs, not to mention the endless list of other side effects?

Chinese Herbal Medicine offers a time-proven solution to your problems. Finally there is a way to treat most of our modern diseases using the most sophisticated form of natural medicine in the world, Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Chinese herbs have served as the foundation of Chinese medicine for over 5000 years. This knowledge was passed down from generation to generation and is considered one of the greatest herbal systems of the world. Because of its systematic approach and clinical effectiveness it has for centuries had a very great influence on the theory and practice of medicine in the East, and more recently has grown rapidly in popularity in the West. Chinese herbal medicine, along with the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. Clinical strategies are based upon Pulse and Tongue diagnosis as well as diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance.

Since most pharmaceutical drugs actually come from a Chinese herb, it makes sense to investigate the source of our modern chemical medicine, without suffering the side effects and outright poisonous results that many of us experience daily using pharmaceutical drugs.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical science with its own theory of how the physiology functions, its own diagnostic techniques, and treatment modalities which include Acupuncture and herbal prescriptions. The cornerstone of TCM is Chinese herbology, which has a 2,000-year history of continual evolution and success. It is one of the most sophisticated clinical systems in the world for analyzing patterns of ill health and treating them successfully.

Unlike Western herbology, which promotes single herbs with singular benefits, Chinese herbology uses herbs in combination to treat multiple disorders. The Chinese herbal pharmacopoeia also contains numerous herbal formulas for tonifying the energy and vitality of the human physiology, something that is not readily available in Western herbology. Herbs are very powerful, but to be effective they must be prescribed on an individual basis. For instance, Golden Seal is effective for some types of colds, but could actually cause a cold in certain types of people. The important thing with herbs is a proper diagnosis and an individualized prescription.

So here are some advantages of Chinese herbal medicine over medicine based on pharmaceutical drugs,

1. Because of the complexity of plant materials, it is far more balanced than medicine based on isolated active ingredients (to treat specific symptoms) and is far less likely to cause side-effects.
2. Because herbs are typically prescribed in combination, the different components of a formulae balance each other, and they undergo a mutual synergy which increases efficacy and enhances safety.
3. Chinese herbal medicine seeks primarily to correct internal imbalances rather than to treat symptoms alone, and therapeutic intervention is designed to encourage this self-healing process.
