Chinese herbal medicine

A Chinese herbalist practices Chinese herbal medicine, which is part of the larger Traditional Chinese Medicine (‘TCM’) healing system. With a few million Australians utilising TCM methods each year, it is a popular health option for a variety of people. Using methods which vary from traditional Western health notions, Chinese herbal medicine aims to balance an individual's Qi which, in turn, results in beneficial results in other areas of the body.

Chinese Herbs

The philosophy in TCM is that everything is made up of five elements - fire, earth, metal, water and wood - and Chinese herbal medicine uses this philosophy be classifying herbs into five categories - sweet, salty, bitter, pungent and sour. Each corresponds and works in unison with one of the five elements - for example, as the skin is a metal element Yang organ, Chinese herbal medicine would treat it with a pungent herb. Most herbal medicines are plant based, however there are some options that include minerals or animal-based products. The arrangement of herbs provided to each and every individual is based on their exact circumstances and needs, as different herbs have different properties and can balance different parts of the body.

What’s the difference between Chinese Medicine and a Chinese Herbalist?

Nothing at all - a Chinese herbalist is simply a component to Chinese medicine as a whole. The use of Chinese herbs can take many different forms, including tablets, teas, pastes, capsules and essential oils, and the way in which they are prepared and used are personalised to each individual.

Who can benefit from seeing a Chinese Herbalist?

Everyone! The benefits that Chinese herbs can offer are far-ranging, helping to manage symptoms and assisting in treating and preventing illness. Some conditions which may benefit from Chinese herbs include :

  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Fertility concerns
  • Gynaecological disorders
  • Stress disorders
  • Fatigue disorders
  • Some autoimmune disorders
  • And many more!

When considering the benefits of herbs mixed by a Chinese herbalist, one of the large advantages is the improvement in your health without the risk of side effects that are commonly found in drug-based medications.
