Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the world's oldest, continually practiced, and documented professional medical systems available. Herbal preparations may be recommended to you based on an understanding of the picture that emerges from your individual situation according to traditional Chinese patterns and nutritional concepts. These herbs are typically prescribed in combination with each other. The different components of a formula balance each other and undergo a mutual synergy which increases efficacy and enhances safety.
Herbal Medicine seeks primarily to correct internal imbalances and encourage the body’s self-healing process rather than to treat symptoms alone. Formulas are distributed several ways: in raw form that you cook at home and drink as a tea; pre-prepared for you already cooked and sealed in vacuum bags; in powdered form that you can mix with warm water; pills; or as a tincture.
