Ancient practices use plant remedies to treat ailments of every kind. Believed to begin as far back as 60,000 years ago, this form of alternative medicine uses a variety of materials that go beyond just herbs. Different ancient civilisations at the time heavily relied on this form of treatment in order to survive. Until today, people continue to believe and depend on herbal medicine as a form of health care.


Chinese Herbal Medicine, in particular, has had a rich history in diagnosis and treatment. They saw the human body as one holistic being and treated illnesses by that same concept. Their system involved diagnosis and differentiating syndromes affecting the body.


Eastern and Western Herbal Medicine

There is a difference between Eastern and Western herbal medicine, specifically with Chinese and European medicine. Traditional Chinese herbal medicine uses herbal combinations designed to accommodate the individual as an entire being. It is an entirely holistic healing approach This involved a comprehensive understanding of the principles of Chinese medicine and physiology. Western herbal medicine is more focused on simpler processes or ingesting herbs as is in order to treat the symptoms of a specific illness.


Over the years, Chinese Herbal Medicine has developed into a more timely system of health care, adjusting to the continuous change in illnesses. By the 12th century, Chinese herbal medicine has standardised a method by fully applying the deeper principles of Chinese medicine. As more principles and disease concepts were considered, Chinese Herbal Medicine was further defined throughout the 14th to the 20th century.


What Are The Benefits of Chinese Medicine?

The essential principles of Chinese medicine are balance and energy. The flow of energy throughout the body is referred to as the qi or chi. It is considered to be the life energy that moves our body. The theory states that an ideal state of the body exists by having perfect balance in every part of us. External and internal factors sometimes upset the balance and this leads to sickness. By identifying what is out of balance in our body, Chinese Medicine practitioners aim to bring these factors back into harmony.
