Herbal Medicine – What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?
Chinese Herbal Medicine is based on a highly evolved healing system that is at least 3000 years old and involves the medicinal use of herbs native to the Chinese sub-continent. Since then the use of these herbs has been expanded to help patients throughout the world. In modern-day China, the use of Chinese herbs is very widespread and extensive research has and is being conducted in many parts of the world to verify their efficacy and best applications.
How are Chinese herbs different from pharmaceutical drugs?
Firstly, Chinese herbalism does not believe in isolating individual “active ingredients” as is standard in pharmaceutical drugs. There is Divine and innate wisdom contained within natural herbs, plants and foods, which contain a matrix of hundreds of ingredients working synergistically. That is why drugs inherently have more serious side effects than herbs.
Secondly, Chinese herbal formulas are designed to treat underlying causes and patterns of overall symptoms instead of only treating isolated symptoms. For example, if you have a headache, Western medicine has a number of standard drugs that are relied on, but Chinese medicine would utilize one of many different formulas depending on the underlying causes and the overall holistic pattern of presented symptoms.
Thirdly, Chinese herbal medicine advocates combining herbs in a formula and only rarely uses individual herbs. The herbs are combined in a special way to enhance each other’s therapeutic effect and to minimize the chance of side effects and toxicity.
Hijama/Cupping is the detoxification of the blood/stimulation of new blood. As we age, we suffer from increased accumulation of toxins, stemming from poor diet and lifestyle, pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, insecticides and other chemicals in our fruits, vegetables and meat, environmental pollutants and chemicals. Hijama helps to remove these impurities and stimulate the bone marrow to produce new, healthier blood.
Increased blood circulation/ Pain Reduction. Areas of chronic pain often have localized areas of blood stagnation. Both the action of drawing a vacuum on the skin as well as the drawing of blood help to improve circulation.
Treatment of Numerous Diseases. Hijama has been historically used to help with numerous diseases including blood disorders, hemophilia, migraines, post-stroke disorders, paralysis, cardio-vascular, hepatic, renal, rheumatic, and menstrual disorders, and more.
