Chinese herbal medicine can be prescribed for a host of chronic conditions including, but not limited to: chronic pain, menstrual disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, neurological disorders, stress related syndromes, respiratory disorders, allergies and auto-immune related disorders.
Chinese herbal medicine can be used as a supplementary treatment to a host of conditions that are being treated with conventional western pharmaceuticals. For example, Chinese herbs can reduce the side effects associated with
chemotherapy treatments, support the strength of the immune system for those patients dealing with a chronic disease state, or help the body rebuild its defense systems after a dose of antibiotics.
Chinese herbal medicine is a great preventative tool to support general health maintenance and overall well being. Herbs can be used to strengthen the immune system and prevent colds and flu, regulate the menstrual cycle and mitigate some of the common negative effects like bloating, cramps and breast tenderness. In addition, Chinese herbal therapy can be used to treat conditions not yet visible on the radar of western medicine, to support great health before an issue progresses to a measurable, diagnosable western disease label.
