What are herbal therapeutic teas?
Before the pharmaceutical culture began, herbs were used to heal the body according to their individual needs. Today, western culture relies on pills that are filled with man-made chemicals, create side effects, and are marketed as a “one-size-fits-all” solution. For many, especially those with chronic pain and illness, these pills fall short of providing the healing and relief the body needs. Herbal medicine fits under the larger umbrella of Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM. Traditional Chinese medicine is based on different ideas and principles than Western medicine. TCM believes in a balance in the body and the energy of the body, specifically in five elements of the body. When these are out of balance, the body experiences pain or illness. Traditional Chinese Medicine includes herbal medicine, teas, tinctures, tonics, elixirs, acupuncture, Tai Chi, and more. These herbs help to balance, nourish, and restore the body, encouraging it to heal itself from the inside. There are many different types of herbs used in herbal medicine. Some practitioners may use up to 20 herbs in one prescription. The herbs work together to address all the issues of your body. The Difference Between Chinese Herbal Medicine and Pharmaceuticals Chinese medicine has been in practice for at least 5,000 years, making it much older than pharmaceuticals. In fact, it is one of the oldest health care systems that still works today. There is also a huge difference in philosophy. Western medicine and pharmaceuticals focus on treating diseases by the symptoms. These are often treated with a pill that is supposed to work for everyone who has the disease, despite the fact that all bodies react to medicine differently. Chinese herbal medicine focuses on the whole person as an individual. Practitioners consider symptoms but more what the symptom is telling the body about how it is out of balance. If you are dealing with back pain, a Western medical practitioner may prescribe a pill to mask the pain which may or may not be effective. With an herbal practitioner, they will prescribe a group of herbs to address the actual reason for your back pain, eventually allowing your back to heal. This is why many people find herbal medicine to be more effective than Western pharmaceuticals. The History of Herbal Medicine The concepts of therapeutic activities as a form of healing were in practice before the term “medicine” was separated from other fields. Written texts began to be compiled around the world to create the consistent form of TCM we are familiar with today.
