Chinese herbal medicine

Breakthrough as Cleveland Clinic begins using Chinese herbal medicine


One of the leading academic and research hospitals in the country has just opened its first Chinese herbal therapy center, a breakthrough in the mainstream advancement of what is commonly referred to as "alternative," or natural, medicine. The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, according to new reports, will now treat patients for pain, indigestion, inflammation and many other chronic health issues using traditional Chinese remedies, affirming the legacy of this holistic approach to healing.

Cleveland hospitals begin to embrace Chinese herbal medicine


The practice of Chinese herbal medicine is currently suppressed in the US, but this is changing as patients call out for alternatives. Herbal medicine is downplayed in America, not because it's ineffective, but because its principles are simply not taught to medical doctors. It's not studied; it's misunderstood. A typical allopathic doctor in America will receive virtually no training in herbal medicine during the decade that he or she spends in higher education. Consequently, mostly all medical doctors lack the basic understanding of how plant constituents heal the body through their unique energetic composition of nutrients and adaptogenic qualities.
