Herbal Medicine

There are approximately 1800 herbs that have proven to be effective in the treatment of symptoms associated with imbalances within the body. Chinese Herbs have been studied and formulated for over millennia and are the most complex, yet effective way to utilize plant or botanical medicine to achieve results. Herbs are prescribed in formulas that are specifically designed to suit each individual. Typically 10 different ingredients will be mixed to form a prescription that is tailored specifically to the patient’s needs.

 

Herbal prescriptions are also available in different forms, pills, tinctures and powdered extracts. Chinese herbal medicine has little to no side effects due to its low toxicity compared to Western drugs. This makes it equally suitable for different types of patients: Adults, pregnant women, children, and babies.
