Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to deal with our physiology gone awry. Western medicine tends to use pharmaceuticals to shut down the symptoms of pathology, by simply turning off whatever unpleasant signal the body is creating. We practice classical Chinese herbalism which is rooted in the belief that true healing comes not from the alleviation of symptoms, but by addressing the root cause in the physiology that caused the symptoms to arise in the first place!
Our bodies possess the innate ability to heal, and sometimes just need a little support in doing so. Whether you suffer from chronic pain, autoimmune disease, infertility, hormone imbalance, or digestive disturbance, the right combination of herbs can help your body to regain its stability and self regulation. Herbal medicine is safe and effective for a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. You can benefit from herbal medicine as a stand alone treatment, or as a part of a comprehensive approach with acupuncture and other modalities.
Patients often have questions about the safety of Chinese herbs and there is so much to say on this topic. We can assure you that we are extremely selective about the way that we source our herbs, and only purchase from companies that conduct independent third party testing to ensure there are no harmful chemicals, pesticide residues, or heavy metal contaminants in our herbs. We carry certified organic herbs whenever possible. We also take great care to make sure that all of our herbal products are prepared adhering to the highest safety standards, and environmentally ethical, and sustainable harvesting practices.
