A HOLISTIC APPROACH
Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners most often use two or more substances in Chinese medicinal formulations to create a balanced, synergistic effect that reflects the holistic nature of the diagnosis. Although there are literally thousands of traditional herbal formulas for just about every condition imaginable, a formula is almost always modified by the practitioner to suit the subtle nuances of the condition and constitution of the patient, making each formulation highly individualized.
Herbal therapy involves the use of individual herbs, or more often, herbal formulas as a treatment for symptoms or as preventative medicine. Herbal therapy has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine to help patients with a wide variety of issues.
In most cases, patients are given a customized herbal formula to take, which consists of a mixture of a number of herbs designed by the practitioner to complement each other and suit the unique health needs of each patient.
Traditionally, herbs have been taken in the form of herbal decoctions. These “teas” are very potent, but are often time consuming to prepare and sometimes very strong tasting. Today, most people take herbs in the form of herbal powders, which consist of traditional herbs refined into an extract powder. These powders are mixed with hot water to prepare a tea-like drink that is taken a few times a day, usually before or after meals depending on the formula.
Herbal therapy is one of the cornerstones of traditional Chinese medicine and can often greatly benefit patients who have been having trouble seeing results with other therapies. Herbal therapies allow you to help retain the positive results from other modalities like acupuncture and cupping by providing ongoing support to your body between appointments.
Patients can often use herbal therapies as alternatives to prescription medications, allowing them to help improve their health without taking pharmaceutical drugs. We understand that most of our clients are very busy and do not have time to cook their herbs. We take your carefully prescribed blend of herbs, decoct and dehydrate them into convenient powder form and send them directly to your door! You will receive your herbs in a bottle with a spoon inside. Simply follow the dosage instructions on your customized bottle of herbs!
Herbal remedies are generally suitable for people of all ages with the necessary adjustments made. They can usually be used alongside prescription medication; however, it is important to always tell your practitioner about any other medications or supplements you are taking to ensure there are no negative interactions. Herbal therapy can be used during pregnancy, but again, it is important to let your herbalist know that you are pregnant so your formula can be appropriately adjusted to best support the changes in your body.
The best way to experience the benefits of herbal therapy is to consult with a experienced herbalist. Our licensed acupuncturists are also skilled herbalists, so if you are currently having acupuncture treatments, you can talk to your acupuncturist about herbs at your next visit. For new patients, we also offer herbal consultations, which include an examination of your body and symptoms and an order for the custom herbal formula our herbalists will prepare.
Herbal medicine is used to treat a range of disorders including weight loss, anxiety, arthritis and overall body pain, depression, high blood pressure, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, migraines, skin problems such as eczema and other disorders.
