What is Chinese Herbal Therapy?

Chinese herbal medicine is a major part of traditional Chinese medicine. It has been used for centuries in China, where herbs are considered fundamental therapy for many acute and chronic conditions. 

Like acupuncture, Chinese herbs can address unhealthy body patterns that manifest in a variety of symptoms and complaints. Chinese herbal therapy aims to help you regain homeostasis, or balance, in your body and to strengthen your body’s resistance to disease. Chinese herbs may be used to decrease flu symptoms, increase energy, improve breathing, improve sleeping, decrease pain, improve your digestion and improve menopausal symptoms.

This will include your past and current illnesses, and medication use. Once you have been fully assessed, Dr Erdmann will make recommendations and provide a custom formula.
