Signs of Illness From the Point of View of Chinese Medicine

How Do We Get Ill?

Emotions are the beginning of illness. Why?

Because we were taught that it is wrong to express how we feel. We bottle up our anger, fear, guilt, and so on. Over time, all these repressed feelings become physical illness like pain, cancer, fibromyalgia, headaches, etc.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, each organ is affected by an emotion.

Why take Herbs? Traditional Chinese Medicine has used herbs in the healing process for over five thousand years

These Medicinal Herbs effectively regenerate, rebuild, detoxify, and invigorate our organs, tissues, and bones.

The acupuncture opens up the channels so the energy can flow freely; this helps the body to heal.

When using the herbs in conjunction with acupuncture, the effectiveness of both increases.

To make it easier to take your herbal medicine, we supply the capsule, tablet, powder, and granule form.


These Medicinal Herbs effect our organs, tissues, and bones by:

  • Regenerating
  • Rebuilding
  • Detoxifying
  • Invigorating

The Herbal Formulas are designed to work directly with our organs to regain their balance so that they can perform their functions correctly.

Quality Manufacture - Modern Approach

Raw herbs are carefully sourced from selected areas where authentic species of herbs are grown and harvested. Every batch of raw herbs is tested for pesticides and heavy metals. To test for trace amounts of heavy metals, state-of-the-art analytic equipment is used such as Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES). Modern analytical tests include High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography (GC), and Thin-layer Chromatography (TLC).
