What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?
Chinese herbal medicine is the use of Chinese medicinals to create formulas based on the specific needs of the patient. Chinese medicinals are usually plant or mineral based products chosen in accordance with Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis and concepts.
At this clinic, we use mainly powdered herbs. These are previously decocted medicinals that we customize and formulate on site to ensure the accuracy of the formula. We may also perscribe capsuled herbs or teapills, depending on the need of each patient.
Only trained and licensed professionals of Traditional Chinese Medicine are able to prescribe and dispense Chinese Herbs, as they are pharmacuetical grade and extremely potent. They have limited side effects and your Herbal practitioner knows how to safely administer Chinese Medicinals, so they are safe for all types of people including pregnant women, children and those taking medications.
Most herbal formulas are perscribed at a dosage of 1 to 3 times a day for several months.
