Natural TCM remedies for the body
TRADITIONAL Chinese medicine (TCM) has always prided itself on its natural remedies for good health.
With interest in natural products being revived worldwide, these remedies have become more relevant than ever.
Set up in 2007, Bao Zhong Tang TCM Centre offers a comprehensive range of TCM services, including consultation, acupuncture and tui na (Chinese therapeutic massage). It also dispenses herbal medicine.
The centre, previously located at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), is now conveniently located at the Novena Specialist Centre.
Those who want in on Bao Zhong Tang's expertise can also look at the centre's line of take-home Chinese proprietary medicine, available at SGH's retail pharmacy and selected Guardian pharmacies.
FOR A CARDIOVASCULAR BOOST:
The active ingredient, Salvia miltiorrhiza (red sage, or danshen in Chinese), is known for its ability to improve blood circulation and relieve blood stasis.
The tablets offer relief from chest discomfort and improve one's overall cardiovascular health.
FOR RESTFUL SLEEP:
PEARL-GANODERMA MIND CALMER TABLETS
This product contains ganoderma, or lingzhi, which is traditionally used to enhance energy and promote good health.
Made with natural ingredients such as pearl extracts (Concha margaritifera), the product helps to calm the mind for a good night's rest.
TO STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM:
CORDYCEPS MYCELIA CAPSULES
Cordyceps, prized for its extensive therapeutic uses, is used to support the functions of the kidneys and the respiratory system.
This product helps to increase vitality and energy, while improving body constitution and overall well-being.
FOR COUGH RELIEF:
COUGH & PHLEGM RELIEVER
This herbal and non-drowsy formula is alcohol-free, and provides relief from stubborn coughs and phlegm build-up.
FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH:
TREASURE OF WOMEN'S TONIC PILLS
Uniquely formulated with up to 20 types of Chinese herbs, this product is commonly used to nourish the blood, improve blood circulation and promote vitality.
While the pills can be taken as a general tonic, they are especially helpful for women feeling rundown from blood loss after menstruation or childbirth.
From April 7 to 11, customers who visit the SGH retail pharmacy can enjoy a 30 per cent discount on the Cardio-Soother Tablets and Pearl-Ganoderma Mind Calmer Tablets.
