Chinese Herbal Medicine

 

Chinese Herbal Medicine has developed over a period of more than two thousand years. Many different substances taken from plants are used to treat various conditions and to tonify the body, strengthening the constitution. The TCM principles behind Chinese Herbal Medicine can also be applied to dietary advice; simple examples would be using ginger to warm the body or drinking Chinese honeysuckle tea to cool it.

 

Chinese herbs can be taken in various forms: tea made from dried herbs, powder or tincture. Herbs used in the UK are free from animal products & minerals. Qualified practitioners are bound by the codes and regulations of professional bodies such as the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM).

 

Many conditions may benefit from CHM including

 

• Dermatological disorders (skin conditions)

• Infertility (often in conjunction with conventional medicine)

• Some gynaecological conditions

• Strengthening body constitution

• Management of chronic conditions e.g. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, some respiratory conditions

 

See  RCHM website for more detailed information:  http://www.rchm.co.uk/   

 

What to expect

On your initial visit, a full medical history will be taken and you can discuss your condition and concerns with Bo. Traditional diagnostic techniques include inspecting the tongue and Chinese pulse diagnosis.

 

One  patient’s experience

“I first started seeing Bo for a skin rash that would flare up regularly, it was uncomfortable and I felt very self conscious about it. Bo treated me with Chinese herbs, they did take a while to work but they are not a quick fix, they bring you back into balance gently and sustain that balance.

Bo is a very knowledgeable and lovely caring lady, and I have recommended her to a number of my friends.”
