CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine started in the mists of time – this can be said as herbal medicine originated from ancient foods. Once people realised that the foods they were eating had an effect on how they were feeling, these foods became medicinal.


In Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) foods (herbs) are categorised into five basic flavours: astringent, sour, bitter, sweet and salty. Each flavour gives the herb different properties. It is then the job of the practitioner to analyse the condition and use the appropriate herbs and doses.  It is also the role of the practitioner to combine herbs together into a formula that can take advantage of each individual herb's properties. This also makes it possible to treat complicated diseases at the same time. That's why few Traditional Chinese Medicine doctors prescribe only a single herb to treat patients.


As the presenting condition changes, so too does the formula. The dose of individual herbs may change, the constituents of the formula may change and the dose to be taken can vary, as can the timing of the administration of the formula.


Some formulas are best taken on an empty stomach, others are best after food.

Are Herbs Safe?
All herbs used in Australia by a qualified, registered practitioner of CHM are approved by the TGA and are therefore safe for use. Australia also enforces a strict policy of not using endangered species.


Are there any Animal Products Used?
There are hundreds of herbs that can be used. Some are plant based, some mineral and others animal. However, we do not use any animal-based products.


What about my other Medications?
As with all good health care practitioners, we need to know what other medications you are taking. This will allow us to avoid any possible complications. We ask that you inform us of your western doctor so we can, if necessary, confirm your provided information with them. We also ask that you inform your general practitioner that you are also receiving Chinese Medicine.
