What conditions can be treated by TCM herbs?

Chinese herbal medicine can treat acute diseases like flu and colds, as well as chronic diseases such as allergies, gynaecological disorders (PMS, infertility, endometriosis, hormonal imbalances, menopause, and osteoporosis), autoimmune diseases, chronic viral diseases, and degenerative diseases caused by aging. Research has indicated that Chinese herbal medicine can strengthen and regulate the immune system, enhance the body's resistance to disease, improve blood circulation, and regulate the function of internal organs such as the heart, liver, lung, spleen, and kidneys. In particular, Chinese herbal medicine is especially good for promoting the body's ability to heal and recuperate.
