For certain syndromes and disease, herbal medicine will be the most effective therapy.
In Chinese Medicine, we use plants, minerals, and animal substances that the body assimilates through its digestive, respiratory, and cutaneous tissues. The medicines I use in my clinic come from all over China and are of exceptional high quality. I am very selective, ensuring that the herbs I use do not have preservatives or chemicals, and that they have not been irradiated or fumigated.
When an herbal formula is prescribed, it is specifically designed to fit the condition of the patient. Herbal formulas are not generic like western drugs. For example, aspirin or tylenol are drugs used for most headaches, no matter what the cause or quality. These drugs may mask the symptoms and bring temporary relief; however they do not prevent the recurrence of future headaches. Herbal formulas are designed to treat the symptoms and the root cause. The objective is to prevent future recurrences. Herbal medicine is all natural and not synthetic which is good for your body overall. Careful consideration is made to ensure that the herbs prescribed to you are best suited for your condition, and that they do not interfere with any pharmaceutical drugs or supplements you are taking.
An herbal formula is compiled of anywhere between two to sometimes fifteen different herbs. When you take the herbs home, you will boil them into a tea. Sometimes the tea will taste good, and sometimes maybe not, but it’s good for you!! Patent medicines are also available.
