Chinese Herbal Medicine

The earliest evidence of Chinese medicine dates back to the Eastern (Later) Han dynasty (25-220 CE) with archaeological findings such as the Mawangdui medical manuscripts. By the 3rd century, major classics were written or compiled such as the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic (Huang di nei jing), Essentials from the Golden Cabinet (Jin gui yao lue), Discussion of Cold damage (Shang han lun) and Divine Husbandman’s Classic of Materia Medica (Shen nong ben cao jing).

In Australia the importing of Chinese medicine herbs is regulated by the TGA (Therapeutic Drugs Act) and banned and dangerous substances are not allowed. The purity and consistency of herbs are maintained by companies that manufacture granules and capsule and pill forms as well as liquid extracts and creams. Correct labeling and used-by dates are essential.

Granules and pills are the preferred choice in this clinic as they are an easy and effective way of taking the medication.
