Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the great herbal systems of the world, with an unbroken tradition going back to the 3rd century BC. Yet throughout its history it has continually developed in response to changing clinical conditions, and has been sustained by research into every aspect of its use.
Because of its systematic approach and clinical effectiveness, it has, for centuries, had great influence on the theory and practice of medicine in the East, and recently has grown rapidly in popularity in the West. It still forms a major part of healthcare provision in China, and is provided in state hospitals alongside Western medicine. Chinese Herbal Medicine shares the same pattern and differential diagnosis as acupuncture where clinical strategies are based upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms.
Chinese medicine as a whole places great emphasis on lifestyle management in order to prevent disease before it occurs. It recognises that health is more than just the absence of disease and it has a unique capacity to maintain and enhance our wellbeing and happiness.
If appropriate other modalities of Chinese medicine can be used with Chinese Herbal Medicine such as Acupuncture or Dietary Therapy.
