Chinese Medicine Treatment in Mississauga
Chinese herbal medicine is part of a larger healing system called traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which also includes acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion and exercise. Chinese herbs are prescribed to normalize imbalanced energy( Qi), that runs through invisible meridians in the body.
The ancient Chinese proposed that every living thing is sustained by a balance of two opposing forces of energy, called Yin and Yang. Together, they make up the life essence, or Qi – a type of energy that flows through the body via invisible channels called meridians. When Yin and Yang are out of balance in the body, this causes a blockage of Qi and a subsequent illness. Yin and Yang imbalances can be caused by stress, pollution, poor diet, emotional upsets or infection. For diagnostic purposes, Yin and Yang are further subdivided into interior and exterior, hot and cold, deficiency and excess.
Chinese herbs are prescribed to restore energy balance to the opposing forces of energy – Yin and Yang.
