Purchase by condition or interest
Traditional Chinese medicine has many uses: you can find yourself seeking to lose weight (Model Lilly) or to boost your immune system (Cordyceps). The range of solutions that Chinese medicine can provide is extensive. Some popular products are also used for common pains like headaches, cold/flu, or even for more complex conditions like gout or cancer. Not only uses for Chinese medicinal herbs have to do with the body, it can sometimes provide comfort to people suffering from insomnia, anxiety, or depression. When seeking this, we also recommend that you pair this treatment with seeing a therapist who can provide you additional tools to cope.
Build your medicinal cabinet
When you purchase a selection of herbal remedies, you can take into account what are the requirements you might have often, perhaps digestive needs or migraines. You might want to purchase larger portions of these medicinal herbs to make sure you always have treatment at home. It's a good practice to make Chinese Medicine your go-to solutions in regards to health. We also recommend that you visit a specialist to make sure you are not combining herbs that can be harmful, this is why we have created the Herbal Teas and Soups combinations to ensure not only healthy but also safety.
Make sure it's a serious company
It´s important that you are purchasing your herbal remedies from serious companies or people, that they know what they are offering you and why. Even thou, we are talking about health products, it´s important to consume products that are not void, correctly packaged, and come in conditions to be consumed.
It´s important to also purchase the correct type of products, so it´s important to seek stores, companies, or practitioners who can answer all your questions and provide you the information you need. Don´t be afraid to ask, consult, and verify, any serious company will be happy to support you in your purchasing process.

TCM seeks to accompany people on their overall journey to wellness, so our last piece of advice is of course to enjoy the experience. Try different products, read and learn about Chinese herbals, work with your TCM practitioner to also try treatments that can improve your lifestyle as a whole. Staying healthy is not only something we do to be better, it also allows to share this balance with others and be a part of their wellbeing.
