Chinese herbal remedies at Care Cure are procured from plants and derive from formulas that have been developed over thousands of years. This age old knowledge of the relationship between plants and how they relate to and benefit the body is prevalent in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practices today.


These formulas are often used with other TCM practices like Acupuncture and Acupressure, to enhance treatment administered in our clinics. Chinese Herbal Medicine contains none of the harsh chemicals or synthetic constituents often found in modern western medication. This is one of the reasons why there has been increased interest in Chinese herbs as people seek out natural remedies that work with the body, without harsh side effects.


At Care Cure herbs are administered in a number of ways.


Dried herbs formulated by our doctors. Perhaps not as popular in the west due to the lengthy preparation time and the strong taste and aroma. However for certain conditions these are excellent as they are personally prepared by our practitioners for each individual and their respective condition. At Care Cure we also make specially blended hand made teas from our herbs.


Chinese patent formulas 
Probably the most widely used as they are pre-made in pill or tablet form and therefore easy to take with all the benefits of the herbal decoctions.



External Remedies
Linements, salves, oils, compresses and plasters containing herbal formulas which are used for external application.
