Traditional Chinese Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine, along with the other components of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is based on the concept of Yin and Yang.

It aims to understand and treat the many ways in which the fundamental balance and harmony between these two may be undermined, and the ways in which a person’s Qi (Energy/Vitality) may be depleted or blocked. Clinical strategies are based upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine Research

There is a growing body of research which indicates that traditional uses of plant remedies and the known pharmacological activity of plant constituents often coincide. However, herbal medicine is distinct from medicine based on pharmaceutical drugs.

Firstly, because of the complexity of plant materials it is far more balanced than medicine based on isolated active ingredients and is far less likely to cause side-effects.

Secondly, because herbs are typically prescribed in combination, the different components of a formulae balance each other, and they undergo a mutual synergy which increases efficacy and enhances safety.

Thirdly, herbal medicine seeks primarily to correct internal imbalances rather than to treat symptoms alone, and therapeutic intervention is designed to encourage this self-healing process.

I have used Keith’s services since late 2013 where as a result of a Nervous Breakdown I was suffering from unimaginable nerve pain in my chest, arms and back. My digestion had come to complete stand still; I could not focus or work and I had a spinning sensation in my head. I was also suffering from Panic Disorder and GAD as a result of life experiences and not knowing what was wrong with me. I also could not sleep. I found Keith’s diagnosis to be excellent and he worked with me to develop a strategy which would improve the quality of my life, and within three sessions most of my nerve pain had disappeared and I started to feel better. The Chinese Medication also helped. He has continued working with me and I recommend that you use his knowledge and services to improve the quality of your life.
