What is TCM Herbal Therapy?

Chinese herbal medicine is one of the world's oldest and most widely used medical processes.

TCM is the only alternative medicine that has created its own medical system, including its own medical principles, diagnostic standards, and associated treatments, in addition to conventional medicine. It employs Chinese medicinal herbs to modify disease processes and mental states, as well as to boost recuperative power and capacity for enjoyment, work, and creativity. Acupuncture, diet, exercise, and meditation are frequently incorporated into its treatment strategy.

How Herbal Therapy Works

Herbal therapy uses medically active substances harvested from plants. These therapies may be made from any part of the plant but are most commonly made from leaves, roots, seeds, flowers, stems, bark, and even stones.

Depending on the herb, they can be taken in pill or liquid form, inhaled or applied to the skin since they come in all forms: dried, chopped, powdered, capsule, or liquid.

We choose to use herbal powder instead of raw herbs for convenience and effectiveness as well as to avoid contamination and heavy metal residue issues.

Herbal Therapy Treatment Procedure

Rather than prescribing specific herbs, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine typically combine a variety of herbs in formulas chosen based on the patient’s individual needs, complex diagnostic patterns, theories, and systems during a herbal consultation or in conjunction with an acupuncture session.
The length of time before you see results depends on a number of factors. For some conditions, people see results within a few minutes of the first treatment. For chronic conditions, it may take a few weeks or longer to see noticeable results.
Herbal therapy is a safe practice and the staff at Qi TCM are very well trained in traditional Chinese medicine. While Chinese herbs generally do not produce any sensations, please inform us about any unusual feelings, stomach upsets or any symptoms of allergic reactions.
Although herbal medicines are a gentle and non-toxic approach to good health, this does not mean that they never cause side effects or allergic reactions or that they never interact with other pharmaceutical and herbal treatments. Please be sure to inform our team about your other medications, and also be clear with your doctor and pharmacist about what TCM herbs you are taking.

Herbal Therapy FAQ

Certainly. Chinese herbs have been widely used for thousands of years. It is very safe to use Chinese herbs if they are prescribed by a licensed practitioner of TCM. Like with any medicine, if you don’t follow the instructions, or take it when it is not prescribed, the results may not be good – so please follow instructions.
Most often, people with chronic conditions can begin seeing results in just two weeks. However, if you are not consistent and disciplined about your herb usage, you may find chronic conditions that were getting better due to herbal medicine begin to return.
While Western medicine may heroically rescue you, traditional Chinese medicine focuses on re-establishing functional harmony in order to restore your health to your body and mind. The key benefit of traditional Chinese medicine is prevention.
Chinese herbs are individual herbs that work synergistically together to accomplish certain goals. They are similar to pharmaceuticals in that they are medicine, but the body processes them the same way it processes food. They stay in the system for three to four hours at most, so they require a longer-term regimen.
Chinese herbs are rarely used individually. They are used in herbal formulas where multiple herbs are combined. These combinations are designed to boost an herb’s effectiveness or to counter potential side effects.
Like their Western medicine counterparts, Chinese herbs may sometimes have undesired side effects. Following directions carefully, and consulting with your TCM practitioner about any unexpected results can help prevent unwanted side effects.
