The goal in any treatment is to address the root cause of your symptoms rather than simply mask the symptoms. We may recommend Chinese herbal medicine and western nutritional supplements to address your condition.

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE

Chinese herbal medicine works hand-in-hand with acupuncture. Their combined effect is often more powerful than either one used alone.

There are more than 400 commonly used herbs in Chinese herbal medicine. They are usually administered in carefully crafted formulas of 5 to15 herbs. The formulas are designed to nourish and support the body and address specific symptoms, often simultaneously.

Most substances in the formulas are of plant origin, though mineral and, occasionally, animal substances are sometimes used. You may be familiar with some commonly used herbs such as Gan Jiang (dried ginger) and Gui Zhi (cinnamon), which could be found in your kitchen. Others such as Bai Shao (white peony root) and Ju Hua (chrysanthemum flowers) might be found in your garden.

We use the highest quality herbal formulas from trusted and well-known manufacturers. We only sell products that are safe, reliable, and pure. Herbs aren’t for everyone, so we will discuss if herbal therapy is appropriate for you during your treatment.

NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

What you eat directly impacts your health. We all know this, but modern life throws endless challenges and hurdles at our attempts to maintain proper nutrition. These challenges often results in digestive problems, weight fluctuations, loss in vitality, and other issues that keep us from being our best selves.

Blood chemistry analysis may be used to look for blood sugar, mineral, fatty acid, and electrolyte imbalances as the source of specific symptoms. Dietary changes and targeted nutritional supplements can be recommended to restore nutrient balance, improve your symptoms, and boost your overall wellbeing.
