What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?
The origins of Chinese herbal medicine in China can be traced back at least 2500 years, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world.
The practice of Chinese herbal medicine has developed and matured to become what it is today - a natural and holistic system of primary and complementary health care that is being used by a wide-range of people to effectively treat a variety of chronic and acute health problems.
Although most diseases or illnesses present with a core set of recognizable signs and symptoms, Chinese medicine practitioners also focus on the unique presentation of each patient. Treatments are individualized to the needs of each person. For this reason, people with similar health conditions may be provided with quite different Chinese herbal medicine prescriptions. The specificity of Chinese medicine treatments also explains why it may be effective when other approaches are not.
Eric Karchmer, a Doctor of Chinese Herbal Medicine at Boone Healing Arts Center, also tailors his acupuncture and herbal treatments to each patient’s specific needs. As the condition changes and improves with treatment, treatment is also adjusted to make sure the desired health outcome is achieved.
