Health is everything. Health is all. Health is the most precious treasure anyone can possess.
We all want to live our lives fully, successfully, healthfully and happily. In the Orient these attainments are cumulatively called radiant health. Physical health by itself becomes irrelevant if it is accompanied by a troubled life, unhappiness or failure. Sooner or later, most of us fall prey to various disharmonies in our lives and to small or serious ailments, which can accumulate and disrupt our lives and reduce our capacity to live fully or reach our potential. Radiant health is attainable, and we can maintain it once we have it. It is possible if we learn the secrets of living in accord with nature's laws and take advantage of a few of nature's tools. Among these tools are the Chinese tonic herbs or superior herbs. They are the elite of the Chinese herbal system, the most fully developed herbal system in the world. They are associated with long life, slow aging, glowing health, happiness, wisdom, physical vitality, adaptability, sexual vigor, mental acuity and clear intuition, love, compassion, harmonious relations with nature and fellow human beings. Chinese tonic herbs provide very special nutrients that help the body-mind become radiantly healthy. The Chinese system emphasizes promoting health whereas other cultures have traditionally emphasized remedial over preventative.
Medical philosophy in China is founded on the premise that the promotion of positive health is primary andChinese herbalism is now taking its rightful place as a major form of health care as science meets tradition.
In November 2014 the Australian and Chinese Governments signed an agreement to set up a research laboratory and Chinese Medicine Centre in Sydney to be operated jointly by Beijing University and University of Western Sydney (Complementary Medicine Centre). This will allow Australia to be part of the growing $170 billion Chinese herbal medicine market.
