Traditional Chinese medicine puts great emphasis on using Chinese herbal medicine. Chinese practitioners believe it helps balance out the energy within the body so it can function normally again. They believe this is the best way to sustain a patient’s health. Because of this, they tend to focus less on treating one specific condition or disease.
A practitioner that administers Chinese herbal medicine will obtain their herbs from natural plant life. Each type of plant produces substances with different characteristics and attributes. The Chinese practitioner will use the proper herbal medicines to treat various bodily disorders in their patients. But first, the patient has a consultation with the practitioner where they are examined and then diagnosed. The practitioner will discuss symptoms with the patient after observing areas of their body, such as their facial features, tongue, and pulse. Based on their findings, the practitioner will write out a prescription for Chinese herbal medicine for the patient to take.
Herbal medicine may assist in balancing the patient’s Qi energy which may have a positive effect on their health and mood.
