Herb Compound Medication
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine has been in existence for over 2000 years and has become increasingly popular in the west over the past ten years. Specifically formulated in China, ingredients can include flowers, leaf stalks, seeds and roots amongst other natural botanicals. Each herb contains healing properties which are chosen for their specific purpose and function. Traditionally doctors will prescribe the combination of herbs to treat the patient's particular condition. The patient would then brew these herbs at home creating a tailor made medicinal drinkable tea. Modern techniques allow these herbal formulas to be condensed into pill, capsule, oral drink or lotion forms retaining their potency and making them more convenient for the end user. Compared with modern chemical medicine Chinese herbal medicine is more likely to treat the cause of the illness and offers a more natural approach. The philosophy behind this medical system states that the whole body of the patient should be checked to find out the real cause of their illness, rather than seeking only to temporarily relieve the symptoms. For some conditions the recovery can be a slow process but the results are long lasting.
