Traditional Chinese Herbs

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses natural substances to effectively treat illness.  More than 450 items, ranging from plants and minerals to foods, form the pharmacopoeia.  These items are combined in a balanced way to conform to an individual patient’s diagnostic picture.  Chinese Herbal Medicines are meant to ease a body in the direction of better function and health.  Traditionally these items were boiled into a soup or tea.  Modern processing techniques prepare standardized medicinal extracts of herbs in convenient powder form which can be mixed with water or encapsulated.  I prescribe traditional teas or modern extracts  in my practice
