Chinese Herbal Medicine 

Aside from its long history  Chinese Herbal Medicine is being used everyday in over 2000 hospitals in China. Here in Australia it has been used for more than 50 years in private practices all over the country.  I use herbal granules or capsules  or a combination of both. The products I use are practitioner-only, which means they cannot be purchased in any retail store and they are manufactured to Australian TGA standards to ensure they  do not contain contaminants such as metals and added chemicals. I often prescribe Chinese herbal medicine for these types of conditions
