Chinese herbal medicine is a potent and significant component of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Prescribed by a trained practitioner, herbal formulas are generally tailored to an individual and are safe and effective. Most formulas I prescribe are in pill or powder form and are convenient and easy to take.
All formulas I carry are subject to “Good Manufacturing Practices” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_manufacturing_practice) and are free of toxic fillers and ingredients.
Developed and refined over millennia, Chinese herbal medicine is a sophisticated and effective modality that is still very relevant to our needs today. The intention with the herbs, as with all Chinese Medicine, is to address the core cause of an issue and not just provide symptomatic treatment.
