Taking Medicines Safely

The medicine used in this clinic have been screened and evaluated by professional doctors and pharmacists. They strictly select pharmaceutical companies and medicinal materials that comply with national inspection standards. Remember not to buy and consume drugs from unknown sources.

Chinese medicine now comes in powders, pills or capsules that can be just as effective. In addition, you can ask your doctor to try medicines that are not too pungent.

As a general rule, it is recommended to take Chinese and Western medicines about 1 to 2 hours apart. The main reason is that Chinese medicines are complex and have relatively complex ingredients, they may react with Western Medicine and affect the absorption of effective components if taken together.

If it is within 2 hours of the intended time, you can take it immediately; but if it is more than 2 hours after the intended time, please ensure that there is 4 hours between doses, and do not take two sachets at the same time.

Most people have a misunderstanding that Chinese medicine only has nourishing herbs. In fact, Chinese medicine also has herbs with other effects. For example, Coptis chinensis is a bitter cold medicine, honeysuckle is a heat-clearing and detoxifying medicine, which is similar to the anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effect of Western medicine. Therefore, it is more appropriate to position Traditional Chinese Medicine as a means of “balancing” the body.

You can call your doctor and the doctor will evaluate whether the medication needs to be adjusted or discontinued.

Generally, the dosage of traditional Chinese medicine for dietary supplements is not too high, and there will be no conflict if consumed in small amounts and for a short period of time. However, for boiled herbs that are consumed regularly over a long period of time, concentration may be higher. It is recommended to consult a traditional Chinese medicine doctor before consumption.

You can first use acupuncture to help stop vomiting, then mix the herbal powder with a small amount of water or put dry powder directly into your mouth. For patients with severe morning sickness, traditional Chinese medicine can also be used to reduce vomiting and relieve discomfort.

The medicinal powder should be stored in a cool and dark place, and the seal should be kept as intact as possible to reduce the chance of the powder getting wet and clumping; the liquid medicine should be stored in the refrigerator, and the medicine should be used on time according to the doctor’s treatment, and should not be stored for too  long, preferably not more than 2 months; for external use drugs, please refer to the storage recommendations on the packaging.

It is not recommended to take it when menstrual flow is heavy; for patients with anaemia, drinking ‘Si Wu Tang’ after menstruation has the effect of replenishing blood. However, patients with gynecological problems such as fibroids and endometriosis must consult a traditional Chinese medicine doctor before consuming it.

Sesame oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and is a high-quality source of oil. Just try to use it cold/room temperature instead of cooking it with ginger or wine at high temperatures. However, some girls have special constitutions. When they encounter sesame oil during menstruation, they will instantly become cleansed or the amount of blood loss will become extremely large.

It is recommended to eat less of foods rich in animal fats such as meat and butter, as well as health foods that are advertised as breast enlargement or can be eaten by women during menopause, because these foods contain hormones and may not benefit you. In addition, high-calorie desserts should not be eaten.


In principle, acupuncture will cause soreness, numbness, swelling, coldness, heat, and shifting sensations. Generally, soreness, numbness, and swelling are the main symptoms. This feeling will usually remain after the needle is removed. This is the “residual needle” feeling and is a normal phenomenon. In principle, it will last for 1-2 hours. Depending on each person’s condition, it may last for 1-2 days. The needles of acupuncture are thinner than those used for blood injections. When the needle is first inserted, it may feel like a mechanical pencil pricking the skin. The more tense the muscles, the harder it will be to insert the needle, and the relative pain will be stronger. Therefore, it is important to keep your mood and body relaxed during acupuncture!

After acupuncture is completed, there is no need to specifically restrict activities. What needs special attention is that the wound after acupuncture must be kept dry. Do not touch water within 2 hours. If you accidentally touch it, just wipe it dry immediately. It is recommended not to go swimming or  bathing in hot springs within 24 hours.

The ear can be regarded as a miniature version of the human body. Ear acupuncture or ear magnets are attached to the ear points to stimulate the dermatomal nerves to achieve pain relief, regulate the visceral system, and adjust the endocrine system.

Auricular Acupuncture: 30 minutes to 10 days; ear magnet: about 3 to 15 days. Everyone’s physical condition is different, and the time required for each person  is also different.
