They are specially formulated in China and include flowers, leaf stalks, seeds and roots. Each herb has healing properties which are used for specific purposes and perform particular functions.
The combinations of herbs (carefully selecting up to 20 from a total of more than 300 types) are prescribed specifically to treat your condition. Each prescription is therefore tailor made. The herbs are cooked and drunk as a infusion ‘tea’ or taken in tablet or pill form, to get to the root of the problem.
In general, Chinese herbal medicine is more widely used for internal conditions, such as chest infections, cystitis, common cold, etc.
Since all patients and conditions are different, treatment can vary from a few weeks to several months.
