In terms of Chinese herbal medicines, we offer a full line of ready-made Chinese single herbs and formulas in granule extract form. All of these herbs are classified according to their energetic qualities, functions, and the different organs, meridians, and dis-harmonies for which they address.
Our herbal formulas will be made with top quality herbs and allow us great flexibility in tailoring our prescriptions to the specific needs of our patients, along with the convenience of not having to cook the raw herbs.
Many of our patients have found that combined acupuncture with Chinese Medicine can speed up the healing process and prevent recurrence of their conditions.
How Does Chinese Herbal Medicine Work?
Unlike conventional medicine which attempts to isolate and separate a disease from a person, Chinese Medicine emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole person. Over the past 5,000 years, herbalists have studied, categorized, tested and compiled each herb for its flavor, therapeutic property and body organ interactions. Chinese herbalism has evolved into a complete therapeutic theories and healing form of its own. Our health center offers 5:1 concentrated herb granule (500 grams of raw herb are equal to 100 grams granules). This concentrated extract ratio allows patients to consume in volume a fraction of the raw herbs in liquid form.
Are there any side effects?
Most of the herbal formula contains natural plant elements - leaves, stems, flowers, roots or seeds- and perhaps minerals or other organic ingredients, therefore, there are no serious side effects. On the rare occasion where there may be some mild digestive upset or difficulty with the taste of the herbs, we advise patients to take their herbs after meals, at a reduced dosage, or modifying the herbal combination.
