As people become increasingly health conscious and seek out natural ways to heal themselves, many have chosen not to use allopathic (conventional) medicine if they can find something else with no side effects.

Herbs used as part of traditional Chinese medicine

The art of Chinese herbal medicine has been in use for over 5,000 years. It has been regarded as “the world’s oldest, safest and most comprehensive system of medical care.” It is based on the use of herbs extracted from plants that possess the powerful healing substances to correct the imbalance of the human body. The herbal prescription will be made according to the patient’s condition. The herbs are cooked and drunk as a decoction (tea) or taken in a tablet form, to get to the root of the problem.
