As everyone’s constitution and symptoms are unique, herbal decoctions are always custom made in order to fully treat the patient’s condition and restore balance according to his deficiencies, excesses and stagnations.
The use of herbal medicine, whether for prevention or treatment, has been popular in Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 2000 years.
There are more than 1000 varieties of herbs available. Each of them has a specific effect on the body:
- Tonifying Qi
- Moving Qi
- Removing Qi stagnation
- Supporting Blood
- Improving Blood circulation
- Disperse Blood stagnation, etc.
Since each individual’s heath condition is specific, TCM doctors tailor a unique formula adapted to the patient’s symptoms and imbalances. In the past years, herbal medicine has grown in popularity as an alternative to Western medication in treating a vast array of symptoms naturally. Herbs may come from plants, animal parts, sea products or minerals and can have various forms such as pills, powder or syrup. However, to facilitate the intake of the herbal decoction prescribed to the patient, Body & Soul – Medical Clinics only supply herbal powders, which are easier to use and mix, more precise, and more accurate. Herbal medicine is a highly efficient treatment method with no or little side effects and no risk of dependence.
