Learn More about Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is one of the main forms of treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM’s written history stretches back at least 2,500 years. Although acupuncture had been the first Chinese medical modality to gain acceptance in the west, Chinese herbal medicine is quickly becoming one of the most popular and effective complementary therapies.
Chinese herbology compliments acupuncture treatments and in some cases is superior to acupuncture. Chinese herbal medicine is a poly-pharmacy, meaning multiple herbs are combined into one formula. By using this form of medicine the herbs synergistically work together to heighten the effect of each medicinal or counteract any undesirable effect. Patients find that results are achieved more quickly when acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are used together.
The Chinese materia medica (a pharmacological reference book used by TCM practitioners) contains hundreds of medicinal substances-primarily plants, but also some minerals and animal products-classified by their perceived action in the body. Different parts of plants such as the leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and seeds are used. Usually, herbs are combined in formulas and given as teas, capsules, tinctures, or powders.
