Chinese medicine is world renowned and is being used to help supplement mainstream medicine or in some cases to replace it.
Herbal remedies are used for many internal issues such as hypertension, headaches and even infections.
What kind of herbs are used?
chinese medicine uses an enormous range of herbs. Practicioners learn for years to understand the uses of the herbs and then they mix them into individual tonics to help suit the patient. Examples are; yarrow, hawthorn, ginseng, ginger, peony etc.
Some people with arthritis and other inflammotary diseases have reported great results with chinese herbs.
Chinese medicine also incorporates acupuncture into the treatment plan. The placement of needles are used to affect the flow of chi, which is represents your energy levels.
You don't have to combine both chinese rememdies and acupuncture but if you are willing to try something alternative there's a huge amount of anecdotal evidence out there, that it really helps.
