We use a wide variety of Chinese herbs to help treat a range of health problems. Raw herbs, patent pills and granulated herbal formulas are available. Methodically, a selection of herbs are chosen to suit your pattern of disharmony to help improve your condition and limit the chances of any side effects.
Raw herbs need to be soaked, boiled and drained in a traditional Chinese tea pot. This is the traditional and most effective way of using Chinese herbs. Typically, it can take up to 3 months for good results to occur. More often than not the effects are felt sooner.
If time does not allow you to go through the raw herb process, Chinese herbs can also be taken in a granule form. Finely crushed herbs are stirred in with approximately 200ml of boiled water, much like instant coffee. The therapeutic results are good, it can take up to 3-6 months for results to occur. More often than not the effects are felt sooner.
Traditional herbs have also been formulated into patent pills (capsules) for convenient and easy consumption. It also doesn’t have any associated taste unlike the raw or granule form. It can take up to 6 months for good results to be detected. Again, more often than not the results are felt sooner.
All three methods of herbal medicine are effective, we typically recommend the granule form as it offers good results within a reasonably short period of time and isn’t as time consuming as preparing the raw herbs. End of the day, it’s up to you to decide which treatment form suits your needs and lifestyle best.
