Acupuncture For Everyone
herbal medicine basics
Alone or combined with acupuncture, Chinese Herbal medicine is a powerful therapeutic method that can greatly improve your overall health and wellbeing.
Chinese herbal medicine works by promoting the body’s own ability to heal and recover from illness. It can be used to treat acute and chronic illnesses and degenerative diseases. It can prevent colds and flu’s, diminish flare-ups from chronic conditions, delay and prevent symptoms associated with degenerative diseases. It can also minimize side effects from pharmaceutical medication, such as digestive upset, headaches, low libido and fatigue.
Chinese Herbal Medicine can be used for a variety of complaints, such as digestive (IBS, acid reflux, constipation); respiratory (cough, wheezing, bronchitis, sinus congestion); gynecological (irregular, painful menstrual periods, PMS, infertility); low immune system, insomnia, anxiety/depression and even stress. “Western” herbs (herbs grown in our local environment or country) are also offered and can be used for the same complaints.
The herbs are available in several forms: raw (whole), powdered, pills, caplets, and capsules. Raw herbs require cooking, while powdered herbs require mixing with hot water. All herbs are sourced from reputable facilities that follow GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices). Allergic reactions are rare and herbal prescriptions can be offered free of wheat, gluten, soy, and dairy.
An individualized prescription is customized and created to match the patient’s condition and modified over time throughout the course of treatment. The length of time required is evaluated on an individual basis. The cost for most weekly prescriptions can vary greatly, depending on the form of herbal medicine and the therapeutic approach needed.
