Herbal Remedies Have Been Used to Successfully Treat a Wide Range of Conditions for Over 5,000 Years

Chinese herbs and traditional herbal remedies have been used in Chinese healthcare for over 5,000 years.

That’s why, at Oriental Healthcare clinic, we consistently use a wide range of herbs and herbal remedies to help ease the symptoms of many common health conditions.

They can be used to ease pain and discomfort, aid the healing and recovery process as well as helping with more specialised issues such as infertility and weight loss.

In most cases, our Chinese herbal medicines will be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as acupuncture or deep tissue massage, to enhance the results that are achieved.

However, there are also certain herbal remedies that can be used as standalone treatments just as you would with a standard prescription.

About the Various Herbs

At Oriental Healthcare, we utilise a very wide range of different herbs, with each having its own unique set of healing properties.

For example, Skullcap is a bitter, cold herb that can be used to lower a fever, whereas Chinese Wolfberry is a great herb for nourishing the body.

In general most herbal remedies contain a mixture of herbs in order to deliver several benefits to both body and mind.

However, there are more common tonic herbs, such as Job’s Tears, cinnamon, gingko nuts, lotus seeds, white fungus, dried lily bulb and red dates that are used alone to assist with the general wellbeing of the body.

How the Remedies Are Used

Your herbal mixture may be supplied as a powder or as dry herbs. From time to time, the mixture will be modified depending on your progress and needs at each stage of your treatment.

The herbal powder is simply dissolved in hot water and you would drink this two or three times daily as set-out by your practitioner.

With the dried Chines herbal remedies, you steep them in boiling water. Much like you would a teabag. After a set time, the herbs are removed and the remedy is ready to drink.

As with the dried powder remedies, you would normally drink these two or three time per day.
