Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for centuries to restore health and optimize wellness by balancing the body’s energy, also known as Qi. The success in human therapy has allowed TCM’s health benefits to be extended to horses and pets. TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) uses the same principles and goals as TCM – balancing the body’s yin and yang to achieve optimal health and harmony.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that most ailments can be contributed to an imbalance in the body’s harmony. Disruption occurs when the body’s meridians are out of sync, whether due to stress, toxins, diet, or other natural causes. The same principles apply in TCVM. When a pet’s Qi is out of balance, illness and disease can occur. Using Chinese herbs and supplements can help realign their bodies back to its natural equilibrium.
The type of herbal supplements and duration of treatment is dependent on the individual animal’s health problem, taking into consideration the severity, duration and the effect of quality of life. Chronic conditions may require more time to be responsive to TCVM. While Western medicine often can control symptoms, they may not necessarily alter the disease process. In addition, Western medicine is often used after the health problems have arisen, while in TCVM the approach is to anticipate future problems by correcting imbalances in earlier stages.
Using Chinese supplements for your pet can help many ways to improve overall health. For instance Chinese herbal supplements may aid the Spleen to digest and balance fluids, the heart to propel blood and support circulation while also soothing the mind. Chinese herbs for Lungs can assist with respiration and pet supplements for the Liver can maintain emotional stability. Supplements for the Kidneys can promote neurological support and help the lower back.
