Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM), amongst the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the theory of Yin and Yang. The aim of CHM is to understand and treat the nature where fundamental balance and harmony between the two may be undermined and in turn how it affects the individual’s Qi (or vitality) and how to restore it. Clinical strategies are based upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance, and prescription of herbal products.

According to the RCHM, Chinese herbal medicine could help in the treatment of a number of health conditions including skin problems such as eczema, acne, psoriasis; gastrointestinal disorders such as IBS; gynaecological conditions including infertility and endometriosis; respiratory complaints such as asthma, sinuses and bronchitis; psycho-emotional problems and many more.

When prescribed correctly by a properly trained practitioner, Chinese herbs are very safe. For many decades doctors have collected detailed information about the pharmacopoiea and the protection of the patient has played a great importance. Adverse reactions can occur with any form of medicine. In the case of Chinese herbal medicine these are rare. RCHM members offer guidance on this to all patients. It is important that you prepare a list of your current medications and dosages for your appointment.
