Herbs, Vitamins & Nutritional Supplements in Traditional Chinese Medicine
The medical theory and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine pre-date the discovery of vitamins, minerals, and isolated nutrients. And for millennia, TCM put its focus on whole food nutrition and herbal medicines, along with acupuncture, bodywork, and lifestyle guidance. While these are still the main strategies used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, we can include a good understanding of how vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional supplements could benefit a specific patient to provide even greater levels of health.
Chinese Herbal Medicine consists of various substances that have been derived from plant, mineral, and even animal sources. Some of the more common examples of everyday herbs that are used in TCM are ginger, peppermint, clove, hawthorne berry, ginko, and even licorice root. Many of these substances have been used for thousands of years in the form of soups, teas, tablets, powders, and salves.
Herbs, vitamins, and nutritional supplements can be prescribed by a knowledgeable and trained
Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, to support physical and mental health processes such as digestion, circulation, immunity, healing and even sleep. They typically have little to no side effects when prescribed properly.
