Herbal Preparations

Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbal preparations are one of the oldest primary health care treatments in the world, consistently in use for over 5000 years.

The practice of Herbal Preparations is a holistic approach to not only treat the symptoms but also the driving illness and as a preventative measure.

Core Principle

Herbal preparation is based on obtaining a physiological / psychological balance of Yin and Yang (the opposing forces of Qi) and the five elements – fundamental principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Yin and Yang are the interdependant natural phenomena of opposing forces that are reflected throughout life itself – Qi / energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is the belief everything is composed of the five elements: fire, earth, metal, water and wood – including the body.

When the harmony of yin and yang of Qi and the five elements are impacted, the flow of Qi throughout the body’s meridian channels is impacted and becomes stagnant.

How it works

Herbs contain a large number of naturally occurring constituents that have some type of biological activity. In Traditional Chinese Medicine each herb has a value associated to Yin and Yang Qi and the five elements, which, when formulated into a bespoke patient preparation will aid in the Qi along meridian paths.

Herbal preparations are individually formulated to treat a patients unique physiological and psychological condition / circumstances. There are over 450 different substances used in Chinese medicine. Dr Dan’s prescription of herbs takes into account the state of the patient’s Yin and Yang, and the elements that are governing the affected organs.

Dr Dan comprehensively steps through an assessment, discusses the symptoms of the condition and addresses possible triggers. The presentation of an illness in an individual can vary from person to person and be influenced by surrounding conditions unique to each case. Therefore dictating that the herbal preparation formulated is customised to the patient.

Dr Dan may also request specific changes in diet, as foods contribute to the five elements constitution, making dietary changes important to the healing process.

Chinese herbal medicines are mainly plant based, but some preparations include minerals or animal products. Most often they are distributed as powders, pastes, lotions or tablets, depending on the herb and its intended use. Different herbs have different properties which can balance particular parts of the body.
