what is traditional Chinese medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been around for thousands of years. TCM successfully assesses the balance of energy in the body and mind, providing valuable information and a treatment path to correct underlying causes of symptoms and diseases. TCM uses Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, meditation, and a variety of other methods to treat and prevent illness. TCM uses and stimulates the body’s own healing mechanism to treat symptoms. TCM finds its roots in ancient Chinese philosophies that, in the simplest of terms, teaches people to live life in balance and harmony with nature.
Chinese herbal medicine comprises thousands of medicinal substances, primarily plant based, but some of which are animal or mineral based. Chinese herbal medicine uses the entire plant – seeds to leaves – in different combinations. These herbs are given as teas, capsules, topical solutions, extracts, powders and other formulations and have a proven track-record of safety and efficacy.
