Traditional Chinese herbal medicine utilizes formulations of approximately 4-20 herbs, which are used in combination to address patients’ specific health needs. There are hundreds of classical formulas that draw from thousands of herbs, and each formula can be customized as needed. These herbs have been utilized for centuries, and are very safe when prescribed by a knowledgeable, trained practitioner.
As with western pharmaceuticals, it takes years of training and practice to understand the depth and breadth of Chinese herbal medicine. Each formulation works at a deep level to balance your constitution and alleviate your symptoms from the root cause. Herbs can be prescribed in pill, tincture, granule, or raw form.
