Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years and is generally commonly recognized for assistance with general health maintenance and disease prevention. It takes a holistic approach to disease and prophylactic care and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as the treatment of it. These herbs often have few or no side effects in contrast to commercial drugs.
Differing dramatically from pharmaceutical medicine, Chinese herbal medicine focuses on treating the entire body to maintain or promote health. The emotional and spiritual health of a patient, in addition to total wellness, are considered when treating and diagnosing conditions and problems. Chinese herbal medicine, along with the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. It aims to understand and treat the many ways in which the fundamental balance and harmony between the two may be undermined. Clinical strategies are based upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance. Chinese herbal medicines are mainly plant based, but some preparations include minerals or animal products. They can be packaged as powders, pastes, lotions or tablets, depending on the herb and its intended use.
