The healing powers of Chinese herbal therapy

In traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine is an important cornerstone. It uses mostly herbal but also mineral and animal substances and combines these in coordination with the individual symptoms of the patient to form a holistic formula. Particularly often, plant parts such as seeds, roots, fruits, flowers, leaves and barks find their way into the mixtures, which, consisting of up to 16 medicinal herbs, are administered as teas, powders, granules or capsules. With proper use and dosage, the herbal therapy is usually free of side effects and can be used as a sole or as an adjunctive therapy.

The Chinese herbal medicine was first mentioned several thousand years ago. In the 4th century BC, the work Shan Hai Jin (“Classics of the Mountains and Seas”) was written, in which a large amount of remedies were described. By the sixth century AD, the doctrine of medicinal herbs had spread to Japan and some other Asian countries. Finally, Chinese medicine reached Europe via the Arab countries. Over the years, herbal remedies have steadily improved and their effects have been clinically confirmed by researchers and scientists from around the world. Promising remedies have been identified as preventing and treating diseases such as cardiovascular disease, migraine, respiratory, gastrointestinal, sleep disorders, depression and burn-out syndrome. Their areas of application extend to acute, chronic, functional and psychosomatic complaints.

But how does the herbal therapy actually work? Unlike z. As in acupuncture, the herbal mixtures unfold their effect from the inside. Depending on the area of ​​application, the formulations administered promote blood circulation, release toxins and thus restore the harmony of body and mind, ie the yin-yang equilibrium.

The selection of medicinal herbs differs very significantly from Western medicine in Chinese medicine. The systematization of the substances takes place by considering their effect on our organism. There are four energies (cold, cool, warm, hot), five flavors (sweet, sour, bitter, salty, spicy) and four directions of movement (down, up, out, inside). For example, herbs that are classified as warm or hot according to their energetics have a positive impact on the course of colds due to their sweat-inducing effects. Cold or cooling herbs, however, can counteract inflammation and acute allergic reactions, eg. As in hay fever relieve.
