Chinese herbal medicine has always been an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Healing substances have been recorded in medical texts and prescribed in formulas for thousands of years, each generation improving the art with their recorded clinical experience. More recently, modern medicine has started to recognize the enormous therapeutic benefits of herbs. In his practice, Falko uses herbal granules, tablets, as well as raw herbs as needed for either internal medicine or external applications such as poultices and liniments.
What makes Chinese herbal medicine unique is the depth of the recorded knowledge behind it, using the wisdom of TCM to diagnose individual patterns of disharmony for each individual patient and treating accordingly. They must be prescribed by a trained Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, and go far deeper than the one-size-fits all approach to herbs that is prevalent in most supplements today. When administered correctly they are both safe and effective.
