Discover Health Wonders of an Ancient Chinese Herbal Formula

Despite the overwhelming growth of modern scientific medicine, traditional Chinese herbal medicines have yet to be set aside. In fact, a great many people still use and believe in the benefits of traditional herbal medicines. They don’t all work, of course. While some patients are eventually cured, some continue on taking the herbal packets for years with no noticeable success. Whichever case happens, it’s a good idea to keep your health insurance ready just in case things don’t turn out the way you want.

Like the famous quote of today “There’s an app for that,” there are always different Chinese herbal medicines or formulas to suit different needs:

Aromatherapy

This is commonly considered as the practice of using the scent generated by aromatic plants to improve a patient’s sense of well-being. These scents are designed to alleviate your stress, depression, as well as help you feel relaxed and good about yourself. Well it’s good if you learn how to mix and make the aromatic herbal packets. But, if you don’t, then don’t attempt to. While some aromatic plants can treat conditions like acne, insomnia and warts, others can cause itchiness, rashes, severe breathing, and in some cases involving an allergic reaction to plants, death.

Treatment for Allergies

One can suffer from allergies due to a lot of things—air to animal hair to shrimps to jewelries to medicines. Symptoms may include sneezing and itchy eyes and throat. Formulas are customisable, depending on the severity of the allergy.

Aid for Arthritis

Most modern science medicines are dedicated to heal arthritis. There are a couple of traditional Chinese medicines used for lessening the joint and knee pain of arthritis.

Treat a Stuffy Nose

All of us experience colds every now and then. A simple cooler weather that gradually changes to a warmer one can give us a congested nose if we have a weak immune system. Most of us will try chicken noodle soup right away but having miso soup with spring onions and fresh ginger—ginger is a key component in Chinese herbal medicines—can do magic as well.

Ease Constipation

Some herbal treatments hasten and promote bowel movement. However, if left untreated, constipation could turn serious and lead to hyperthyroidism and colon cancer.

Cure Coughs

There are plenty of Chinese traditional medicines effective for treating coughs.

Stop Diarrhea

Chinese treatments like hot peppermint tea, vegetable broth, and plain white rice can ease diarrhea. Like constipation, if it’s not treated well, this condition could lead to complications.

Reduce Fatigue

Some herbal alternatives wash away toxins from the body’s internal system, which improves blood circulation, which in turn, generally gives the patient more energy.

Lessen Headaches

Even after taking a couple of Advils like M&Ms, headaches still manage to make the day miserable for most people. However, a few Chinese herbal soups, especially those with mint, have been known to lessen and reduce the quality of a headache.

Help Insomniacs

Sleepless nights are daunting and affect a person’s health. Aromatherapy, with its soothing treatments, are often a great solution to sleepless nights.

Ease Menstrual Pain

It’s harder to take prescribed scientific medicines when you have your period because of complications. Some even suffer from extreme cases of dysmenorrhea so terrible they can’t get out of their beds. However, some Chinese herbal formulas offer relief for just this type of pain.

UTI Solution

Urinary Tract Infections, also commonly known as bladder infections, are often caused by dirt on the strip where the urine pass. This is common for women because their reproductive system is more exposed than those of men’s. Again, if not treated promptly, the infection may go through the kidney and cause serious kidney damage.

These are only a few of the wonderful health benefits ancient Chinese herbal formulas offer. However, everything on this list should be accompanied with proper diet and serious medical advice. Also, before taking any of these, always remember to ask your physician whether it would counter your hospital treatment or not—if you have one.
