Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) is an ancient system of healthcare made modern.

Through centuries of continual research and development, CHM has evolved from a traditional practice into a set of modern treatments rooted in tradition, able to combat a broader spectrum of human ailments.

In China, CHM is not an alternative form of therapy. State hospitals use it in conjunction with Western medicine in order to provide full-scope treatment to the benefit of their patients.

At Southcentre Chinese Acupuncture, today’s health problems are solved through the traditional and natural methods of CHM and acupuncture.

An Integral Element of TCM

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)  is a system of medicine several thousand years in the making. Based on the flow of energy along pathways throughout the body, it is a collection of treatment methods that aim to restore balance to the body, mind and spirit.

 

Many elements of TCM have become mainstays in Canada. Tai chi is practised by 250 million people worldwide. The demand for Chinese acupuncture in Calgary has never been higher (come see for yourself why our acupuncture services are so popular). And many of today’s diet and nutrition recommendations come directly from Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Treatment for the Mind, Body, and Soul

Rather than isolating and treating a disease or ailment within a patient, Chinese Herbal Medicine promotes a holistic approach to health in which each person is regarded as a whole sum of their parts. CHM is widely regarded as an excellent tool for curing illness and preventing future malady, and is also used to help tackle both physical and psychological afflictions.

Herbal Medicine is helpful in: 

  • Slowing the progression of diseases 
  • Augmenting immune system strength
  • Improving the quality of life of patients receiving other treatments

 

Chinese herbs are frequently used by people to increase energy, manage pain, and boost their immune system. It is also an effective form of therapy for aiding in the recovery from cancer treatments. It is useful in helping with the body’s recuperation from the after-effects of radiation and chemotherapy. 

Similarly, patients suffering from the side effects associated with prescription medication often turn to CHM for relief.
