COLD AND FLU/ COUGHS
Cold and Flu/ Coughs
For more than 2000 years Chinese medicine has had more to say about colds and 'flu than simply take a panadol and sudafed and go to bed. The treatment of colds and their complications was first described in detail in the Shang Han Lun, a Chinese medical classic, in the 2nd century AD.
While it is now well established that colds and 'flu are of viral origin and that many of the herbs used for these conditions have antiviral properties, the traditional approach is still the most clinically useful when using Chinese herbs.
If suffering from the early signs of colds or 'flu like sore throat, fever, chills, cough, sinus, sweat or no sweat, myalgia, headache, lots of mucus/sputum visit your Chinese Medicine practitioner.
Instead of staying away and thinking "I don't want to spread my germs- I'll stay at home" it is the best time to visit the clinic for a treatment. The herbs and diagnosis process used for several thousand years has been tried and tested with excellent results.
As well as using herbs I include acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and syrups when treating colds and 'flu.
