Oriental Herbal Medicine
Oriental herbal medicine is considered an essential part of Oriental medicine. It works in conjunction with acupuncture for the treatment of a wide range of imbalances and dysfunctions of the body & mind.
The Benefits of Oriental Herbs
Oriental herbal medicine draws on ancient practices of directly experiencing and testing plants in their healing and toxic properties. The earliest records of prepared herbal formulations are more than 2,000 years old.
Since the early nineteenth century, increasing attempts have been made to understand the properties of Eastern medicinal substances through scientiﬁc research.
Many herbal formulas have withstood time and have shown to be of great clinical support to contemporary diseases and imbalances. They provide an essential conjunction to acupuncture and Oriental dietetics.
The herbalist employs a broad range of formulas, each of which can be modiﬁed to ﬁt a patient’s individual pattern of disharmony. After a diagnosis is formed via pulse and tongue analysis, a classical formula is selected as a foundation for the treatment and other herbs may be added speciﬁc to the individual’s complaint and constitution.
In our clinic we use granulated dried extracts, organic raw herb powders as well as concentrated pills and capsules to accommodate patients’ needs.
Sometimes we receive questions about standards of purity in the production of formulas and single herbs. All our products are listed under the very stringent legislative requirements of the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and appear on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). Therefore all our medicines and supplements conform to strict standards of quality, safety and efficacy legally required by the ARTG.
