Traditional Chinese Medicine

Sunrider’s Philosophy of Regeneration® is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine in which each of the body’s systems is affected by different organs that generate either Yin or Yang energy. Each organ is also represented by a different element, reflecting the Taoist philosophy that the human body contains all of the elements of nature.

The function of the Yin organs is to produce, transform, regulate and store fundamental substances such as qi (energy), blood, and body fluids. The Yang organs are mainly responsible for digesting food and transmitting nutrients to the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine seeks to balance how the organs work together while also balancing the properties of cold and heat, internal and external, deficiency and excess.

As you can see, Traditional Chinese Medicine is very different than Western medicine, and very complex. Sunrider brings the Western world the benefits of this ancient healing tradition in convenient herbal and food supplements formulated for our busy lifestyles. See the Healing Herbs page to learn how different Sunrider formulas support the body systems listed above.

Sunrider Removes the Guesswork

Sunrider removes the guesswork out of what herbs to use to improve and support your health. Every Sunrider product combines multiple ingredients that work together to nourish the body’s different systems.  I have spent years working with naturopathic doctors trying different herbal supplements to improve my health (for digestive, immune, energy, mood, hormonal issues). After just one month using Sunrider products, I noticed a significant improvement in my health (as documented in my first blog).

Traditional Chinese Medicine offers a lot to the world in terms of its proven healing capabilities. Do an internet search for “Chinese medicine and clinical studies” and you will find many studies proving the effectiveness of Chinese herbs (and acupuncture). However, finding a qualified TCM practitioner in the U.S. is difficult. Sunrider makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine in food/herbal supplements that are safe for everyone. You don’t need to even have any health challenges to benefit from Sunrider products. They will help you achieve and maintain optimal health and longevity.
