Chinese Herbal Medicine Q&A

What is Chinese herbal medicine?

Herbs are the prescription medications of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Unlike standardized prescription drugs, however, an acupuncturist creates a customized Chinese herbal formula to meet the unique needs of each individual patient. To diagnose conditions and prescribe personalized herbal formulas requires years of specialized training in TCM.

Since it’s been used safely for thousands of years, Chinese herbal medicine helps restore the body's energetic balance and supports immune function. As do other aspects of TCM, Chinese herbs address the root cause of illness, rather than merely providing symptom relief. 

Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine uses only high-quality herbs in the form of plants that you cook or powders or pills.

Which conditions can Chinese herbal medicine treat?

Chinese herbal prescriptions can act as preventive medicine and address a wide variety of health conditions.

Herbal therapy can address multiple symptoms and frequently offers benefits when other treatments haven’t succeeded. Herbal medicine can also help reduce side effects from prescription medications and chemotherapy.

Some common conditions treated with Chinese herbal medicine include: 

  • Colds and other respiratory illnesses
  • Digestive issues
  • Chronic and acute pain conditions
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Irregular or heavy periods
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Emotional troubles

Your experienced acupuncturist at Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine may recommend herbal medicine in combination with acupuncture, moxa, massage therapy, and other all-natural techniques to provide comprehensive care for your personal health needs.

Are Chinese herbs safe?

Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine carefully selects herbs from reliable sources to ensure their safety and effectiveness.

Your experienced acupuncturist uses your personal health history, a review of your symptoms, and several techniques from TCM to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Based on this diagnosis, your provider formulates your herbal prescription. 

Chinese herbs can support some prescription medications but may interact poorly with others. Be sure to inform your acupuncturist if you’re taking any prescription medicine, as well as any over-the-counter drugs or food supplements you use regularly.

The caring team at Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine takes care to ensure you have precisely the right herbal medicine formula for your needs. To schedule a consultation for Chinese herbal medicine, call the office or book online today.
