Working from the inside out, Herbal Medicine balances the internal organs and energies of the body.
Herbal medicine is gentle, and slow acting and therefore has no side effects.
A single herb rarely has all the properties needed to help solve health problems in a complex human being. Unlike a single herbal remedy that you may find at the health food store, a DrTCM prescribes a complex, yet balanced herbal formula specific for each patient’s needs. The whole plant or plant part is used, often together with other herbs (which balance each other) to most effectively take care of the individual’s specific needs.
Herbs assist the organ networks in the performance of their functions. Particular herbs enter specific channels and enhance the capacity of the pertaining organ. Chinese Herbal Medicine can be taken a number of ways depending on the patient’s time and preference. Some examples include boiling raw whole herbs into a tea, drinking a granulated powder, taking a pre-made patent medicine in pill form or even ingesting capsulated tablets.
Herbal medicine encompasses everything from roots, leaves and vines to minerals, mushrooms, seashells and fruits.
