Vitamins & nutritional supplements in Traditional Chinese Medicine
The medical theory and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) pre-date the discovery of vitamins, minerals, and isolated nutrients. And TCM focuses on whole food nutrition and Chinese herbal medicines, along with acupuncture, manual therapies, and healthy lifestyle. However, Dr. Dawn also includes an understanding of how vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional supplements may benefit specific patients to provide even greater levels of health.
Chinese herbs consists of various substances that have been derived from plant, mineral, and even animal sources. Some of the more common examples of everyday herbs that are used in TCM are ginger, peppermint, clove, hawthorne berry, ginko, and even licorice root. Dr. Dawn may also recommend other herbs for various conditions, such as milk thistle or bergamot, from a more modern, Western herbal perspective.
