Chinese herbal medicine is a safe, balanced way of addressing many varied health conditions in the body. With herbs, one can strengthen the immune system, relieve pain, treat colds and flus, calm the body and mind from stress, treat menstrual cramps, insomnia and much more. I have an in-house herbal dispensary with herbal formulas in pill, capsule and tincture form. These medicines are a great alternative to Western pharmaceuticals in many cases. They also can be used if someone is already taking Western medication.
I am a board certified, experienced Herbalist. Herbal medicine is not a one size fits all approach, as it often is for Western pharmaceuticals.
Steps to Wellness:
STEP ONE: SYMPTOMATIC CARE: At this stage, I am concerned with alleviating the symptoms causing you to seek my care. Once your symptoms are resolved, we move onto Step Two, Corrective Care.
STEP TWO: CORRECTIVE CARE: This second phase is concerned with treating more of the root, the underlying cause of your illness, beyond simply addressing the symptoms. Often this phase will involve a second formula, different from the formula in Step One. This stage of treatment may be enjoyed for two to six months. We are rebuilding the core foundation.
STEP THREE: PROPHYLACTIC CARE/MAINTENANCE THERAPY: The final phase of treatment involves now staying strong and healthy. This may involve a different herbal formula aimed at prevention of relapse. This phase is ongoing. The body’s immune system will be maintained to protect you as it should.
