Chinese Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is one of the world's oldest continuously practiced systems of natural therapy.


From the earliest times, traditional Chinese medicine has formed a strong philosophical basis for health and disease, with treatments ranging from herbal medicines to acupuncture, moxibustion and massage techniques. 


Chinese medicine has utilised the healing properties of herbs for centuries to treat a wide range of internal conditions. Herbal formulas have long been used in the treatment of skin problems such as eczema and psoraises, chronic disorders, digestive problems, menstrual problems, infertility, sinusitis etc.


Boiling prescribed herbs or making a decoction is the traditional method of preparing herbs and it is still a very popular method of preparation. However, for people who find boiling herbs inconvenient, Chinese herbal treatment comes also in Concentrated Herbal Extracts. These are developed by using first grade Chinese herbs which have been processed and concentrated into powder (or granule) form.


At Jade Buddha Herbs, we supply raw herbs as well as single herbal extracts which can be combined to make instant tea. The advantage of raw herbs and single herb extracts over fixed formulas, is that with single herbs, specific ingredients can be combined or adjusted at different stages of the healing process to suit the clinical pattern of a particular patient.


Our herbal treatments are tailored to suit individual needs and we follow appropriate management plans, adjusting the formula at different stages of the healing process to suit the clinical pattern of a particular patient.


Chinese herbalism is also concerned with prevention and maintaining good health outside times of illness, and for this reason a growing number of people are choosing to use herbs in their daily lives.


A study assessing the effect of Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) in the management of female infertility and on pregnancy rates compared with Western medical (WM) treatment showed positive results for Chinese medicine.

It included 40 RCT's (Randomized Control Trial) and 4247 women with infertility. Trials included women with PCOS, endometriosis, anovulation, fallopian tube blockage, or unexplained infertility. Results indicated Chinese herbal medicine could improve pregnancy rates 2-fold compared to Western drug therapy in the treatment of female infertility, boosting pregnancy rates from 30% to 60% over 3 to 6 months.
