The domain of TCM is herbal medicine. In China a much higher percentage works with her over acupuncture. Here in Europe it is just the reverse. This is due to the information overload of acupuncture and how long it is already practiced in this country.
Before the use of very affective herbs, it is very important to have a very precise diagnosis to accurately understand the pathological events. In general a classic herbal formula is used, which will be individually altered, if necessary, to the patient's needs.
All Chinese herbs that are sold through pharmacies have been tested for heavy metals, toxic substances and thus often more pure than the junk bought here, which are perhaps grown near to a highway.
The Chinese herbal therapy can help in both acute and chronic events.
