A typical herbal consultation involves sitting down with one of our licensed Chinese medicine practitioners in a private, safe setting. During this appointment your practitioner will ask relevant questions about the reason for your visit as well as learn more about your lifestyle, diet, and medical history.
Chinese medical theory looks at both the ailment and the underlying pattern of disharmony within the body. It is this understanding that makes Chinese herbs incredibly effective, even in situations in which Western pharmaceuticals are less effective. The customization of formulas also decreases any risk of unwanted side effects.
Chinese herbology has been used for centuries to treat a variety of diseases and disorders. All of the herbs are naturally produced; originating from plant, animal, or mineral products.
Chinese herbs differ from Western pharmaceuticals by treating the underlying cause of the condition while simultaneously strengthening the immune system. Herbal formulas are often uniquely created for each individual, which allows us to treat multiple presenting symptoms and/or tailor the prescription for the patient’s specific constitution.
Herbal formulas are most commonly ingested as a tea. We offer convenient granular formulas that are powder dissolved in hot water or capsules to be taken with warm water. Your practitioner will work with you to provide the appropriate method of administration.
We proudly choose Evergreen Herbs as our granular herb supplier due to their diligence in accurate identification of herbs, testing procedures that rule out impurities such as heavy metals and the unique knowledge of the founders who literally wrote the textbooks used in modern Chinese Medicine schools.
