What are Chinese medicinal herbs & how can they help you?
Chinese herbal medicines have been used for thousands of years and are now used globally alongside Western medical treatments as an effective means of treating a wide range of health conditions. The basic principles of Chinese medicine is to tackle the root cause of problem and not just symptom. Health symptoms are the result of a deeper underlying cause that must be corrected internally (not masked over by chemical medicines). Whilst 2 patients suffering from the same symptom would both be prescribed the same medicine in Western healthcare, they would be likely given 2 completely different prescriptions at AcuMedic. These powerful herbs are made up of natural flora & fauna primarily from China and work by targeting specific organs that may be weakened or deteriorating. Our AcuMedic physicians (with a high level of knowledge & expertise) can identify these organs and prescribe the appropriate concoction of medicinal herbs to ultimately help treat your health issues. AcuMedic has successfully treated many thousands of patients at our clinic in London over the past 35 years. Every persons case is different and we treat all our patients as individuals.
We DO NOT use any animal products in our medicines and never will.
How much does this all cost?
Since every patients case and prescription are different, the cost of the medicines will vary depending on the type and number of herbs prescribed by the doctor. However, to give you an idea, here is an average cost breakdown of each herbal sachet:
- 1-6 herbs - 150 baht / sachet
- 6-12 herbs - 300 baht / sachet
- 12-20 herbs - 450 baht / sachet
How do you make payment?
Your doctor's report email will have instructions on how to make payment through bank transfer. Once payment has been confirmed, we will begin making your formula and send you a tracking number once it's been sent.
How does your herbal formula arrive & how to take it?
We understand most people have busy lifestyles and schedules, so we've made everything as easy as possible for you. Once an order has been confirmed, we will make your custom herbal formula and vacuum package the liquid concoction into small, ready-to-open sachets. There is no boiling of raw herbs, no smell and it's completely fuss free. All you need to do is tear open the sachet, pour into a mug or cup and reheat in a microwave for 1 minute, then simply drink. These sachets can be stored in your refrigerator and stay fresh for up to 30 days and can be easily taken to your work place or office. We will also include a step by step manual with your order.
How long before you notice the results?
Again, this varies from case to case. Chinese herbal medicines generally take longer than Western medicine as the herbs need time strengthen your internal organs and in turn alleviate certain symptoms, so we do ask that you complete the full course dosage before we evaluate any improvements. Usually a course can run anywhere from 1 week to 2 weeks depending on the severity of the health condition(s) being treated. After the course is complete, our doctors will send you a follow up email and check your progress.
Does it taste bad?
The medicinal concoction generally tastes bitter, however the health benefits you will gain completely outweigh a small cup of bitterness. You can also add some honey to sweeten the taste.
