Chinese herbal medicine has origins in China dating back at least 5000 years, making it one of the most ancient and long-standing health care systems in the world.
At Torquay Chinese Medicine, Chinese herbal medicine can be prescribed in many different forms including patented pills or capsules, lozenges, external tinctures or washes, and dried granules - which are simply dissolved in boiling water (from the kettle) to make a tea.
Only the finest quality herbs and herbal products are prescribed. At Torquay Chinese Medicine, we use KPC Herbs dried granules to make our Chinese Herbal Medicine teas. You can read about their quality control here. We also prescribe the ChinaMed capsule range, and you can read about their quality and safety here. For babies and children, we use the best quality concentrated granules from Red Peony - which are made more palatable with the addition of the natural sweetener, Stevia.
