There are more than 450 natural substances used in Chinese herbal medicine. These substances are derived primarily from plants, animals and minerals. Many substances, such as garlic, ginger and cinnamon, are found in suburban kitchens and gardens throughout Canberra. It’s not unusual for substances to be mixed together (powdered formulae) or used in conjunction with one another.
Chinese herbal medicine, which is either taken orally or applied to external parts of the body, may provide patients with relief from a number of general health symptoms, including pain, stress, fatigue and nausea. When you consult with a Chinese medicine practitioner at Canberra Classic Chinese Medicine Centre, it’s important to disclose any medications you’re currently taking.
