Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Therapy is a major part of Chinese Medicine and a key component of Dr. Bebe Chianni Lin's Integrative Medicine practice. It has been used for centuries in Chinese culture, where herbs are considered fundamental therapy for many acute and chronic conditions. Herbal medicine can reduce pharmaceutical side-effects, and sometimes replace Western medications completely.

Like acupuncture, Chinese herbs can address unhealthy body patterns that can cause a variety of symptoms and complaints. Chinese herbal therapy aims to help you regain balance in your body and to strengthen your body’s resistance to disease. Chinese herbs may be used to:

Strengthen your immune system
Increase your energy
Improve your breathing
Decrease pain
Improve digestion
Enhance your sleep
Improve menopausal symptoms
Help regulate menstrual cycles to improve reproductive organs
Address Skin issues

Chinese herbal therapy can also be a valuable additional therapy following cancer treatment to aid the body’s recovery from the effects of chemotherapy and/or radiation. Chinese herbs are useful in rehabilitation for other chronic diseases as well.
