Our TCM Complex for International Service was established in the year of 2000. We are the most professional in China for international TCM service, for example:
1. More than one million international friends have consulted us for health problems and TCM knowledge by email and Skype, etc.
2. Our hospital has helped about 2300 international patients who came here for hospitalization due to various kinds of chronic and difficult diseases.
3. Our hospital have offered Chinese medicine training programs for more than 700 international students.
4. Our international patients and students came from more than one hundred different countries, including South America, North America, Africa, middle-east, Asia.
5. We have sent more than 40 thousand copies of English TCM books over the world.
6. We are regarded as the biggest international folk exchange platform in our Hunan Province.
7. Many international friends in our hospital find the fact that “most international patients who suffer from
chronic and difficult health problems could get obvious improvement during the first two weeks.”
8. More and more international friends and wholesalers are ordering our herbal formulas and herbs.
9. Many international friends in our hospital find the fact that “most international patients who suffer from chronic and difficult health problems could get obvious improvement during the first two weeks.” For example, the curative result for lumbar disc protrusion and sciatica is very significant. We treat them by pure TCM treatment with low cost and quick effectiveness. No surgery, no side effect, no hormone, no sequela. For lumbar disc protrusion, you will see some improvement after one week treatment, it can be cured after one and a half months…… Also the treatment results for hypertension is good, generally speaking, you won’t need to take medicine after two months treatment and don’t need western medicine in your whole life either.
The advantages of TCM: Chinese medicines are made purely from plants, which have no side effects and are safe to take. In TCM, many diseases do not need surgery, such as lumbar disease, arthropathy and heart disease. This kind of treatment is very comfortable and not scary for the patiens. TCM does not require life-long medication, as it is a treatment of the root of the disease, and the curative effect is good. TCM is backed by several thousand years of historical experience, the theory of which is very stable and not frequently changing, unlike other medicine which for example may say tonsillectomy is needed for tonsillitis today, but due to new findings or research may say it is not needed tomorrow, and after tomorrow might be indicated again. Indeed, it can be seen that TCM is relatively much more reliable.
The theoretical system of TCM is based upon the universe concept (such as heaven and earth) and philosophy concept (such as yin and yang). The clinical system of TCM is based upon live human bodies. The treatment of medicines is based upon plants. During the treatment, TCM regards the human body as a whole. All herbs in the formula could cooperate and supplement each other to play a comprehensive role. Therefore, TCM is really a science of human beings, a science of ecology, and a science of wholeness.
At present in the medical field, the biggest achievement of the human beings is Western Medicine and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Western medicine specializes in treating approximately 30% of all man’s diseases, such as: first aid; surgeries; the prevention of the spreading of epidemic diseases; and sustaining life functions by the use of modern facilities and equipment. Whereas TCM excels in the treatment of 70% of human diseases, such as: chronic inflammation; chronic pain; functional imbalance; immune system disorders; viral infections; proliferative diseases; degenerative conditions; senility problems; commonly encountered syndromes; sub-health status; and other chronic and difficult health problems. In China, most people who suffer from chronic and difficult diseases like to seek help from TCM.
We know that Western Medicine is the preferred solution for acute conditions, however the number of people choosing the green, and safe, medicine is growing daily. Rather than Western medicine, which is based on chemical materials that then have their side effects with their problems, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based upon natural plants. The comprehensive and flexible treatment strategies bring about fantastic results based on herbal treatment, acupuncture and massage rather than the invasive methods of Western medicine. It is now our special honor to share this millennia old medicine with you and other friends all over the world.

A Guide to Common Medicinal Herbs
Here’s a look at some of the more common medicinal herbs. Most herbs have not been completely tested to see how well they work or to see if they interact with other herbs, supplements, medicines, or foods. Products added to herbal preparations may also cause interactions. Be aware that “natural” does not mean “safe.” It’s important to tell your healthcare providers about any herb or dietary supplement you are using.
Considered by some to be a cure-all, chamomile is commonly used in the U.S. as analyticalally and sedative for anxiety and relaxation. It is used in Europe for wound healing and to reduce inflammation or swelling. Few studies have looked at how well it works for any condition. Chamomile is used as a tea or applied as a compress. It is considered safe by the FDA. It may increase drowsiness caused by medicines or other herbs or supplements. Chamomile may interfere with the way the body uses some medicines, causing too high a level of the medicine in some people. As with any medicinal herb, talk with your healthcare provider before taking it.
Echinacea is commonly used to treat or prevent colds, flu, and infections, and for wound healing. More than 25 published studies looked at how well Echinacea worked to prevent or shorten the course of a cold, but none were conclusive. A 2014 study compared Echinacea with a placebo for treating colds. Results found that Echinacea did not have any effect on a cold. Other studies have also shown that long-term use can affect the body’s immune system. It should not be used with medicines that can cause liver problems. People allergic to plants in the daisy family may be more likely to have an allergic reaction to Echinacea. The daisy family includes ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, and daisies.
Fever-few was traditionally used to treat fevers. It is now commonly used to prevent migraines and treat arthritis. Some research has shown that certain fever-few preparations can prevent migraines. Side effects include mouth ulcers and digestive irritation. People who suddenly stop taking fever-few for migraines may have their headaches return. Fever few should not be used with non steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines because these medicines may change how well fever-few works. It should not be used with warfarin or other anticoagulant medicines.
Garlic is used for lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. It has antimicrobial effects. Reports from small, short-term, and poorly described studies show that it may cause small reductions in total and LDL cholesterol. But German research results on garlic’s cholesterol-lowering effect have been distorted for a positive effect, the FDA says. Researchers are currently exploring garlic’s possible role in preventing cancer. The FDA considers garlic safe. It should not be used with warfarin, because large amounts of garlic may affect clotting. For the same reason, large amounts should not be taken before dental procedures or surgery.
Ginger is used to ease nausea and motion sickness. Research suggests that ginger can relieve nausea caused by pregnancy or chemotherapy. Other areas under investigation are in surgery and for nausea caused by motion. Reported side effects include bloating, gas, heartburn, and nausea.
Ginkgo leaf extract has been used to treat a variety of conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, fatigue, and tinnitus. It is also used to improve memory and to prevent dementia and other brain disorders. Some studies have supported its slight effectiveness. But exactly how gingko works isn’t understood. Only extract from leaves should be used. Seeds contain ginkgo toxin. This toxin can cause seizures and, in large amounts, death. Because some information suggests that ginkgo can increase the risk of bleeding, it should not be used with non steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines, anticoagulants, anticonvulsant medicines, or tricycle antidepressants.
Ginseng is used as a tonic and aphrodisiac, even as a cure-all. Research is uncertain how well it works, partly because of the difficulty in defining “vitality” and “quality of life.” There is a large variation in the quality of ginseng sold. Side effects are high blood pressure and tachycardia. It’s considered safe by the FDA, but shouldn’t be used with warfarin, heparin, non steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines, estrogens, cysticercoids, or digoxin. People with diabetes should not use ginseng.
Golden seal is used to treat diarrhea, and eye and skin irritations. It is also used as an antiseptic. It is also an unproven treatment for colds. Goldenseal contains berberine, a plant alkaloid with a long history of medicinal use in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. Studies have shown that golden-seal is effective for diarrhea. But it’s not recommended because it can be poisonous in high doses. It can cause skin, mouth, throat, and gastric irritation. It is also not recommended because of the plant’s endangered species status.
Milk thistle is used to treat liver conditions and high cholesterol, and to reduce the growth of cancer cells. Milk thistle is a plant that originated in the Mediterranean region. It has been used for many different illnesses over the last several thousand years, especially liver problems. Although study results are uncertain, some promising information exists.
Saint John’s wort
Saint John’s wort is used as an antidepressant. Recent studies have not confirmed that there is more than a slight effect on depression. More research is needed to determine the best dose. A side effect is sensitivity to light, but this is only noted in people taking large doses of the herb. St. John’s work can cause a dangerous interaction with other commonly used medicines. Always talk with your healthcare provider before using this herb.
Saw palmetto is used to treat benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). But recent studies have not found it to work well for this condition. Side effects are digestive upset and headache, both mild.
Valerian is used to treat sleeplessness and to reduce anxiety. Research suggests that valerian may be a helpful sleep aid, but there are no well-designed studies to confirm the results. In the U.S., valerian is used as a flavoring for root beer and other foods. As with any medicinal herb, talk with your healthcare provider before taking it.
