What are Chinese medicinal herbs?
While acupuncture is the most well known part of Chinese Medicine, Chinese herbalism has an even longer recorded history of active use. In Chinese medicine, there is a literary as well as an oral tradition reaching back several thousand years where certain formulas of herbs have been passed down and developed by senior physicians from every generation. These formulas have helped billions of people over the centuries.
Chinese herbs are a variety of natural substances found within the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms. They are skillfully prepared and combined into formulas for the treatment of illnesses. Before the days of extracting and synthesizing natural substances into pharmaceuticals, there was the whole plant. Herbs can be thought of as very nutritious foods that heal. Chinese herbalism can be used to address any possible condition of human disease. The herbs are combined in very specific, time tested formulas based on in-depth diagnosis.
Are herbs safe to ingest?
Herbs have been used for thousands of years to help people find their health. Many of the formulas we prescribe in the clinic have been used for 2,000 years! As long as the herbs are used correctly, they are safe and very helpful. The herbs and supplements used in the clinic are of the highest quality on the market with great care in choosing what herbs, supplements, and formulas to carry in the clinic.
For those who also take pharmaceuticals, we strongly recommend separating the ingestion of herbs and pharmaceuticals by two hours.
Those that are not organic comply at a minimum with international GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) standards, which ensure that herbs are free of sulfur and other harmful preservatives.
