About Chinese Herbal Medicine
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the primary goal is to enhance quality of life and restore balance to the body by regulating the flow of Qi (pronounced chee) throughout the body. Qi is believed to be the main life force and can be defined as “bio-energy.” It can be manipulated in numerous ways, including through the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines.
In the modern world, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine are most often used as a complement to western veterinary medicine. It is frequently used in instances where pets can no longer tolerate, are not responding to, or are experiencing side effects from western medicine.
