General Health

Traditional Chinese herbal medicine (TCM herbal medicine) works by leveraging the inherent healing properties of herbs to address imbalances and disharmonies within the body. Each herbal formula is carefully crafted to target specific patterns of imbalance identified through TCM diagnostic methods, such as pulse diagnosis, tongue examination, and symptom analysis. By restoring balance to the body’s internal systems, TCM herbal medicine supports optimal functioning and promotes overall health and vitality.

What Can TCM Herbal Medicine Address?

  • Digestive disorders such as indigestion, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. According to TCM, the digestive system is governed by the spleen and stomach, with the spleen playing a crucial role in transforming and transporting nutrients, while also being responsible for the production of Qi and blood from the food we eat.[1]
  • Respiratory conditions such as coughs, colds, bronchitis, and allergies. TCM herbs and acupuncture can reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract, which can alleviate symptoms of respiratory conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD).[2]
  • Stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers a holistic approach to stress and anxiety management, focusing on restoring balance to the body and mind. Acupuncture, one of the most well-known forms of TCM, stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Research suggests that it may help to reduce stress and anxiety by regulating the body’s stress response.[3]
  • Fatigue, low energy, and poor concentration. Studies have shown that TCM can alleviate fatigue through many pathways, such as antioxidation, decreasing the accumulation of metabolites, anti-inflammation, promotion of exercise endurance, and regulation of the hypothalamic–pituitary adrenal axis (HPA) function, energy metabolism, gut microbiota, and immune system.[4]
  • Hormonal imbalances and menstrual irregularities. Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, and dietary therapy, can help balance hormones in the body. It works by regulating hormones, improving blood flow, and reducing stress and anxiety, all of which can have a positive impact on hormonal balance.[5]
  • Joint pain, muscle tension, and arthritis. TCM views joint pain as a condition often caused by the stagnation of Qi and blood, and an invasion of external pathogenic factors such as wind, cold, and dampness. These elements are believed to block the flow of Qi and blood, leading to pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints.[6]
  • Skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. By taking a holistic approach to healing, TCM not only can alleviate symptoms but also address underlying imbalances in the body that may be contributing to the condition. TCM has been used to manage the symptoms of a variety of skin disorders, such as eczema, psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, and urticaria.[7]
