Chinese Herbal Medicine

There are over 400 Chinese herbs suitable for use in the United Kingdom as they have well-documented and understood functions. Chinese herbs are said to balance the Yin-Yang (life forces) to regulate internal organs and to enhance the immune system.

Much research, however, has shown that function groups of some herbal combinations have the same effects as chemical synthetic drugs, such as killing bacteria, restraining viruses, relieving fever, stopping pain, balancing the hormones, reducing glucose level in blood, etc.

Herbal treatment includes: dry herbs to be taken as tea, in tablet and capsule format as well as powders, creams and lotions for external use. With or without acupuncture, Chinese herbs can be powerful therapy.

The effectiveness of using Chinese medicine, however, depends heavily on the experience and qualifications of the practitioner and on his/her understanding of patient’s health conditions.

I found that not only did the pain killers not stop most of the plain, but upset my stomach which gave a general feeling of being unwell."
