Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Chinese herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to cancer and other chronic diseases of our modern times.

Purity of formulas and single herbs are critical for effective treatment.   Synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides are not only toxic, they interfere with herb potency and quality. The herbs I dispense are purchased from a reputable company that supports and encourages farmers who use sustainable growing and harvesting practices using natural and organic fertilizers and pest control. They maintain direct relationships with the providers and growers of herbs to ensure that the planting and growing are in accordance with the processes mentioned in the classical medical texts, and whose soil quality and cultivation practices meet strict standards. In addition, they use rigorous testing procedures during processing and manufacturing of the formulas and single herbs to ensure their safety and efficacy.

Together we can tailor a course of treatment
to meet your unique health needs.

There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. You will generally receive a mixture of several different herbs in a formula that has been customized for your condition. Chinese herbs are extremely effective and normally have only mild side effects, however it is very important to disclose all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formula.
