Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine has been one of the cornerstones of Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Herbal medicine has a profound impact on health with minimal side effects in comparison to many Western medications.

Chinese herbs are different from pharmaceutical drugs in that they are prescribed for patients on an individual basis. This means that a trained physician will combine a different combination of herbs in varying proportions for each patient, often changing the prescription for the same patient weekly depending upon the patient’s progress.

This method of prescribing can increase the effectiveness of the prescription use dramatically over the store-bought herbal products that are pre- formulated for a general condition. 

An immense amount of research has been done validating the efficacy and merit of Chinese herbal medicine as it is ability to treat a wide range of acute and chronic diseases.
