Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) is one of the five branches of traditional Chinese medicine. The majority of cases in traditional Chinese medicine clinics in China are treated with herbs, either with acupuncture or alone. Herbs are used to correct and balance the underlying disease pattern and to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. Each herb has a different effect on the body and can affect a variety of organs, including the liver, lungs, or heart.
Traditional Chinese veterinary medicine utilizes Herbal formulas that are a combination of singe herb ingredients to treat a specific pattern or disease. Clinical research has shown CHM to be effective in treating chronic veterinary medical issues in the fields of gastroenterology, cardiology, Dermatology, endocrinology, reproduction, oncology, and behavior.
CHM is also commonly used to treat respiratory issues and sports injuries, and to increase the quality of life for geriatric patients. Chinese herbal medicine can be combined with acupuncture and/or Western medicine to enhance clinical results.
