Can Chinese herbs be used in conjunction with conventional medicine?

There are very few reports of adverse interactions between herbal medicine and conventional one. In fact, the two very often complement each other. However, it is important that patients disclose every medication currently taking to our practitioners at the first consultation so that we are able to ascertain any risks and adjust prescriptions accordingly

What is the difference of the herbal tea prepared by raw herbs and concentrated granules?

Nong’s Chinese herbal granules are prepared by replicating the traditional method of preparing decoction using modern extraction and concentration technologies. They are instantly soluble in water, thus eliminating the tedious and complicated process of boiling herbs while guaranteeing the same degree of curative efficacy, taste, aroma and flavor as in traditionally prepared medicinal decoction.

What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, refers to a broad range of medical practices sharing common concepts which have been developed in China and are based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years, including various forms of Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, Tui-na (Chinese therapeutic massage), cupping, reflexology, moxibustion, dietary therapy, lifestyle advice, movement therapy (such as Tai Chi), and meditative therapy (such as Qi Gong).

Appointment

How often should I come for treatment?

As part of your first visit, our practitioner will propose a therapy plan. Since every individual is different with varied conditions, it is difficult to state definitively how many treatments will be required. In general, acute conditions of recent onset may require 2 or 3 treatments. Chronic conditions usually require more treatments to achieve sustainable results.

How should I prepare for the treatment sessions?

• Make sure you have something light an hour or two before the visit and do not consume any alcoholic or caffeinated beverages. Receiving treatment on an empty stomach may affect effectiveness and you may also feel dizzy after the treatment.

• Wear comfortable clothes. You will be asked to disrobe to undergarment but robes or coverings will be provided.

• Avoid wearing strong perfumes or cologne.

• Refrain from doing heavy exercises right before the appointment.

• Provide a list of medications you are taking.

• Bring along any relevant imaging or lab work.

Appointments are required for all consultations to avoid long waiting hours. We recommend you to arrive on time as the more relaxed you are, the more accurate the diagnosis.

Are Chinese herbs safe and reliable?

Chinese herbal medicine has been used as front line medicine by the majority of the world’s population for thousands of years, and is still the most widely utilized medical system in the world today. Our clinic exclusively uses Nong’s herbal products. Nong’s granulated herbal extracts provides quality and convenient solutions to replace the use of raw herbs while abiding by the TCM principles. Therefore, great dissolvability is the key to dosage accuracy and efficacy of TCM. Nong’s herbs can be dissolved in hot water clearly so that patients taking the herbal drink can experience the same taste, smell and most importantly, the effects of decocted herbs. Nong’s factory in Nanning has obtained Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certificates from both the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) of China and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) of Australia, proving that it has attained world-class manufacturing standards. With the ISO-17025 (CNAS certified) in-house laboratory, the 100% self-owned plant is regarded as one of the finest TCM facilities in Asia. The entire production line adopts the latest Japanese technology, with 80% of the manufacturing process being fully automated, outperforming the productivity of other similar production plants by 300–400%.
