Herbal Medicine Therapy involves the use of a combination of medicinal herbs from the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) pharmacopoeia known as a herbal formula. Herbal formulas are orally ingested to create specific biochemical responses in the body. The strength of TCM herbal formulas lies in the theoretically sound and time-tested methods of combining different medicinal herbs together to naturally treat multiple unique symptoms at once.
How Can Herbal Medicine Therapy Help?
Herbal formulas from the TCM pharmacopoeia have a broad spectrum of pharmacological properties. Combined with traditional indications of use, herbal formulas are a natural and effective choice in both supporting a wide range of health benefits, as well as treating many different types of illnesses and conditions that are often closely associated with biomedically defined diseases.
Herbal formulas are especially effective in supporting optimum immune system function, particularly in relation to common colds and infections, stress, skin problems, insomnia, fatigue, and various unresolved illnesses that have not responded well to conventional care. They are also commonly used to alleviate pain and other symptoms and conditions associated with trauma, surgery, and/or drug treatment. This is why herbal formulas have become an important component of integrative medicine.
In addition to immune system support, herbal formulas can also be used to simultaneously balance the function of other body systems, including the hormonal, nervous, digestive, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal systems, as well as various organ systems. In this way herbal formulas are also excellent choices for maintaining health and promoting wellness.
