Pioneering Physicians

The process of preparing TCM herbs for consumption can be time-consuming and laborious. The traditional method of consuming herbs involved procuring a prescription from the TCM physician, taking the prescription to the TCM medical hall (the TCM version of a pharmacy where herbs are sold) to purchase the herbs to be brewed at home. The process of brewing herbs follows strict cooking instructions involving the preparation, procedure and timing of the broth according to the specific herbs used.

In 1971 Dr Koh Kee Chang processed the family herbal formulae into powder form and pioneered the use of powdered TCM herbs in capsules to provide an even more convenient and palatable method of taking herbal remedies. This method has proven to be an effective form of treatment and the convenience of capsules has been successfully adopted and appreciated by patients.

To provide his prescriptions in a convenient form Dr. Koh Chong Hern pioneered the use of TCM herbal extracts in liquid form in 1957. This allowed his patients to procure the ready prepared herbs directly from the clinic during their visits. This convenience saved patients the task of buying and brewing the herbs separately. It is a method that has been proven effective and is still used at the clinic today.
