The term Chinese Herb describes a natural product which can have originated in any country. It is grouped as a Chinese herb when it is described and understood using the theoretical foundations of Chinese Medicine. The classifications includes flavour, temperature, action and which body system 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 ensures that the harsh action of some herbs are moderated by other herbs which allows the body to be treated and supported at the same time.

Some examples of conditions which can be treated with herbs are: high/low blood pressure, menopause, anxiety, digestive disorders, fertility, insomnia. These are just a few examples. Chinese herbs are used to regulate any pattern of disharmony (illness) and are prescribed per individual need. Please contact me if you’d like to know if herbs can help you.
