Chinese herbal medicine takes an holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.

A qualified practitioner is able to prescribe a Chinese herbal formula that is specifically tailored to the individual so rather that treating the disease in general, the focus is on the patient’s particular health condition. For this reason, people with similar health conditions may be prescribed quite different Chinese herbal medicine prescriptions.

As your condition changes and improves with treatment, the Chinese herbal treatment is adjusted accordingly.
