While modern medicine has certainly managed to cure and eliminate many diseases, we are starting to see far more medical issues arise. Some of these can be attributed to the changes in our diet, while others are a direct result of stress, the use of pharmaceuticals and poor choices. The Western World is starting to take a much closer look at Chinese herbal medicine as a possible form of treatment.

The culture of Chinese herbal medicine is among the oldest in the world with written records that date back over 2000 years. Of course, pre-historic Chinese herbal medicine treatments, must go back much further. The goal has always been to balance the entire body as a whole, not only treating the symptoms, but curing the source of the illness. This is referred to as treating the branch, but curing the root. In order to restore this balance, traditional Chinese medicine uses any one or more of hundreds of different herbal supplements, acupuncture and massage, along with a variety of meditative and physical exercises to properly restore the person's Qi, balance ones yin and yang, and along with it their health.

In the Western World we have long thought that the practice of Chinese herbal medicine was more charlatan than the real medical practice. Our scientists have invested many years and billions of dollars in proving that herbal cures are folk medicine that does not work. It has only been in recent years that science has begun to take a second look and rethink their position on the use of many of these ancient Chinese herbal remedies. Today all the herbs used in the Chinese herbal Materia Medica, have been chemically analyzed, and we now know the chemical make up of these herbs, showing us from a scientific perspective how they actually help cure diseases. Furthermore, ALL of the Chinese herbal remedies that are used in the West have been documented in various clinical trials, showing positive results.

You only have to look at the longevity of the Chinese to see that much of their knowledge is based on thousands of years of practice and that Chinese herbal medicine does indeed help to relieve the symptoms of many illnesses and diseases. Modern science is no longer turning a blind eye to this history and is beginning to embrace the possibilities, with some amazing results for countless amounts of people.
