What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?
Chinese Herbal Medicine is the ancient healing application of herbs (plant, animal & mineral) to therapeutically treat the body. This discipline has developed over thousands of years and is now researched and used in our modern world with great success. Access the powerful healing effect of Chinese herbs with very little chance of side effects.

The term Chinese herb describes a natural product which can have originated in any country around the world. It is grouped as a Chinese herb when it is described and understood using the theoretical foundations of Chinese medicine. Their classification includes flavour, temperature, action and which channel they effect. Foods are also classified in this way but don’t act as strongly as herbs. Chinese herbs you are probably aware of include ginseng, ginger, cinnamon, goji berries, chrysanthemum, peppermint and dandelion.
Chinese herbs are usually mixed together in a specific formula. This wonderful idea ensures that the harsh action of some herbs are moderated by other herbs allowing the body to be treated and supported at the same time.
