Chinese Herbal Medicine

Several Thousand Years Ago
Chinese herbalists developed a very complex and highly effective system for diagnosing and treating a very wide range of illnesses. Diagnosis is made primarily by taking the patients pulse and by observing the tongue These enable the practitioner to determine the state of a patient's chi and to decide which formulas need to be prescribed.

Acute Illness
We get excellent results in treating wide a range of acute illnesses. This is especially true for treating colds and flus, particularly when the herbs are taken right at the beginning of the illness. Herbs are also effective for treating other common acute conditions such as poison oak and sprains.

Chronic Illness
Herbal formulas are equally effective in treating chronic illness. There are many different ways the formulas are used. Sometimes they will prescribe formula to build and tonify the vital energy or chi, while at other times they may used be to disperse the chi. The combination of Chinese herbs with acupuncture is very powerful.

Ancient Tradition
bottels of herbas and raw herbs
Herbs have played a central role in Chinese medicine for many thousands of years. Some formulas that are in use today were first recorded over two thousand years ago, so one can confidently say they have stood the test of time! The long period of time that these formulas have been used was first brought home to me when one of my teachers, a Chinese herbalist, described two formulas saying the new formula was one thousand years old, while the old one was two thousand years old!

Almost all the herbal formulas we use are manufactured by American companies. These companies use the highest quality herbs, and list all the ingredients on the bottle.
