chinese herbal medicine
The use of herbs is the main form of treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine. For over thousands of years, Chinese doctors have perfected a comprehensive system for diagnosing health problems and treating them using a complex formula of herbs, selected from a possible 500 or more herbs, each of which has it’s own function, and also different functions when used in combination with other herbs. A typical herbal formula will usually contain up to 15 herbs. Herbs are given as pills, powders, or raw herbs to be cooked into a tea and drank. Prior to developing an herbal formula, a Chinese diagnosis is first obtained using the pulses, tongue, palpation and symptoms to determine the exact herbal combination for you.

Like acupuncture, these herbs balance the systems of the body and mind, regulating the functioning of the internal organs, clearing blockages in the flow of Qi and other vital substances. They also strengthen any deficiencies and expel any excessive factors. They treat the body and mind as a whole, going to the root of the problem as well as relieving the symptoms. They stimulate the body’s own healing process and bring about a deep re-balancing of the system so as to carry out a long term cure and increase the body’s resistance to further problems in the future.

Almost any condition can benefit from taking Chinese herbs and a very wide range of conditions can be treated with high effectiveness, including:

Skin - eczema, psoriasis, acne, etc.

Pain - arthritis, back and neck pain, joint pain, muscle pain, fractures, post surgical, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.

When properly given, and taken by the patient, Chinese Herbal Medicine is extremely safe. In addition to my extensive herbal studies and training, I have also been trained in herbal interactions and precautions with Western medicines. I use only high quality dried herbs imported directly from China and manufactured by companies that meet GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards. I use no herbal medicines that contain heavy metals, endangered species, or “other” unknown ingredients.
