Chinese Herbal Medicine

With over 2000 years of unbroken tradition, Chinese herbal medicine has a comprehensive theoretical framework. Its principles include that each herbal substance has different types of Qi, thermal and dynamic natures. Understanding the nature of substances and the human body allows herbalists to use herbal medicine to address the disharmony in the body that causes illness and disease. Chinese herbal medicine is delivered in a variety of different ways: traditionally, raw herbs are slowly boiled in a clay pot or raw herbs grounded up to be made into powder, paste or pills. However, in modern times there are patent pills, granule forms and pulverised raw herbs in tea bags for ease of use and convenience – all of which we stock at Project Dao.

The quality of Chinese herbs can vary dramatically. At Project Dao, we stock only the highest quality of herbal products to ensure that our prescriptions work for you at their optimal potential. All of our herbs are TGA approved, which means they have been through rigorous testing for safety and quality by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of the Australian government.
