Eastern (Chinese) Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is yet another facet of the integrated system that is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and involves the use of ‘herbs’ that can include roots, stems, seeds, flowers and even berries to aid to assist in health care and disease prevention.

Herbs have the ability to strengthen and enhance the bodies’ functions, support the immune system and promote overall wellbeing. Herbs are natural alternative to synthetic chemical drugs. They usually have little to no side effects.

Chinese herbs are usually prescribed in formulas or modified formulas rather than single herb treatments and who wouldn’t benefit from Chinese Herbs?! They have been used medicinally for well over 5000 years with hundreds of generations of Chinese Herbalists passing on their knowledge of what works and what doesn’t to the following generations. The end result of this extensive period of research is a thorough understanding of the herbs and how they affect the human body.

In Australia today Chinese Herbalists are tertiary trained and regulated by professional associations, government standards, private health care insurers and animal welfare treaties (*no animal products are used in Alchemy’s range of Chinese Herbs). We treat a full range of medical complaints including digestive, gynaecological, paediatric, dermatological, psychological, musculo-skeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, geriatric, hormonal, genito-urinary, lymphatic, reproductive, and neurological.

Alchemy’s range of Chinese Herbs include:

  • Powdered raw herbs
