People from all over the world are constantly looking for solutions to their health problems after Western medicines have failed them. This is especially true when it comes to chronic diseases and ailments. Chinese herbs and medicines are frequently used for general health problems as well as conditions that have been diagnosed as having no radical cure.

The Origins of Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM is a system that was developed over the course of more than 3000 years and provides a very detailed system of health promotion and maintenance. Because of this rich background, Chinese medicine continues to gain international recognition.

The Chinese have refined the idea of person-centered medicine over the centuries. There are 4 principal examination methods : examining the patient by sight, by sound and smell, inquiring about symptoms and by touching the patient (a process known as palpitation). A diagnosis can then be made in terms of the 8 indicators, deficiency and excess, cold and heat, exterior and interior and yin and yang.

TCM can really be used for just about any health issue that you can think of including these general conditions listed below :

Acid Reflux
Blood pressure
Weight Loss
Blood Circulation
Male Sexual Potency
Women's Sexual Potency and Infertility

Herbs can be used individually or as part of a combination that is known as a formula. The idea behind a formula is to use the herbs in harmony. Over the years, TCM practitioners have developed a system by which they are able to match combinations of herbs to combinations of symptoms. 

Formulas are normally available as tablets, capsules, teas, tinctures and powders. Herbal experts agree that Chinese herbal formulas are most effective when taken as teas, but because it may be too time consuming, many patients opt for over the counter tablets and extracts.

First time users of herbal formulas are frequently confused by the dosages as this is mostly given as a range rather than an exact dosage. An example of this would be "take one to three pills daily". This means that the minimum dosage to see results is one tablet and taking more than three will have no additional benefit.

For the best results, it is advised to take the formulas on an empty stomach with a little bit of warm water (about 120 ml or half a cup). The water will be responsible to carry the formula to the digestive tract, while taking it on an empty stomach will ensure that there will be no unwanted chemical reactions with food.
