Chinese Herbal Medicine

Substances found in the environment have been used medicinally ever since we learned that what we ate, drank or applied to our skin affected our bodies. While modern pharmacy has searched for isolated substances that target precise mechanisms, in China a holistic approach has continued combining multiple ingredients in their natural form with the aim of achieving complex results.
Chinese herbal medicine is unique for the fluidity of its practice. Instead of having a fixed formula for each named condition they are continuously adjusted according to the present needs of the patient, taking into account each person's strength of resources, stage of the problem and changes that happen between each visit.

Modern practice combines scientific evidence with traditional lore, creating formulas that are based on these historical recipes modified according to each individual's specific patterns and reinforced with research into particular ingredients which have demonstrated effects in laboratory or clinical trials.
