Herbal Therapy and Nutritional Counsel
The use of Herbal Medicines is founded on centuries of studying the effects of herbs, evolving from local folk remedies into a refined scholarly tradition used by the emporers in China, as well as indigenous Peoples' worldwide, Herbal Medicine is both an art and a science. Ancient herbal wisdom was gathered, compiled, formulated, tested and handed down from generation to generation.
Herbal medicine may be used alone or with acupuncture as a complimentary therapy often leading to quicker and more sustaining results. Herbal medicine can be used to expedite the healing process and strengthen, support or tonify the body. These plant based formulas have the capacity to address the underlying root cause of various medical conditions, whether acute or chronic. When prescribed and used correctly, herbal formulas rarely cause unwarranted side-effects. Formulas can be prescribed in a number of ways: raw herbs that are boiled into a tea, liquid extracts, pills or powders.
