HERBS AND HOMEOPATHICS
One of the main reasons Chinese live healthier and longer lives than any other people in the world is their use of rejuvenating herbs. It's no secret then, that herbs help improve the quality of our health; many of today's wonder drugs are derived from them. The Chinese have had such remarkable success with herbal curative formulas and they've been developing, improving and perfecting them for 5,000 years.
Ancient Chinese herbal formulas are as effective now as they were when first introduced. Most formulas consist of two to eighteen different types of herbs. Formulas treat a wide variety of symptoms while stimulating the body's natural healing process. Hospital studies prescribing individualized complex herbal formulas have demonstrated excellent results with patients who fail to respond to conventional pharmaceutical treatments.
Proper diet and exercise, meditation and the careful prescription of herbs can prevent disease, restore the body's proper balance, and aid one in maintaining optimum health. Chinese herbology believes that all disease stems from imbalance occurring in the organ system. The healthy body, with its properly functioning immune system, is more than capable of combating the viruses it is exposed to. A properly balanced system will resist and destroy bacteria before they cause disease. Simply put, illness simply cannot exist if the body is in harmony. On the other hand, Chinese herbal theory holds that an unhealthy body requires herbal and dietary treatments to restore and maintain this essential balance.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that uses highly diluted doses from the plant, mineral and animal kingdoms to stimulate natural defenses in the body. Homeopathic remedies are based on the theory that "like cures like," and uses remedies that cause symptoms of a certain illness in one who is healthy in order to stimulate the body's natural defenses to heal those same symptoms in one who is ill. The word homeopathy comes from the Greek word 'homeos' meaning similar, and 'pathos' meaning suffering.
A homeopath will take a detailed medical history (including physical and emotional symptoms) from a client, then tailor remedies to heal the symptoms. It is particularly effective in treating chronic illnesses that fail to respond to conventional treatment.
Homeopathy for Women's Health
Homeopathy can be used to treat many common physical and emotional symptoms associated with menstrual cycles, hormone imbalances, and pre-menstrual syndrome. Because of its emphasis on treating the whole patient on a physical, mental, and emotional level, it is ideally suited for treating the wide range of possible symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle. Because homeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body's healing system to regain a sense of balance, problems involving hormonal imbalances respond well to homeopathic treatment. Increasing numbers of women are making use of homeopathy during labor and childbirth, and homeopathic treatment can be very helpful after delivery, or during breast-feeding.
