HERBAL MEDICINE

Benefits of Herbal Medicine

By combining acupuncture and herbal medicine together, you can see far better results in a shorter period of time. Herbal medicine is the original medicine. Animals know what plants to eat in order to heal themselves, and that was likely also true for us at some point in the history of our species.

Acupuncture works to rearrange the resources you already have in your body, while herbs are a way to input into the system in order to achieve a specific effect. They nourish and support health, without the harmful side effects of pharmaceuticals.

Herbal Medicine is Potent

Customized Chinese herbal formulas are a powerful way to relieve symptoms and address your constitution. Unlike pharmaceuticals, herbal formulas can actually correct imbalances in the body so that you are not indefinitely dependent on them. Safety is of the utmost importance, and we are trained in both Eastern and Western pharmacology in order to understand potential interactions and any contraindications.

What Makes Our Herbal Clinic Unique

Marisa’s passion for herbal medicine began as a teenager, and it wasn’t until later that she also fell in love with acupuncture. Chinese herbal medicine requires years of rigorous study, but she sought out years of additional training and experience at a Chinese herbal compounding pharmacy while in graduate school.

Our extensive in-house herbal pharmacy demonstrates our commitment to helping others through herbal medicine. Having herbs on hand means patients can receive their herbs that same day, so we can treat what’s going on in “real time.”

What Does Taking Chinese Herbs Entail?

With acupuncture, we might see a patient once or twice a week to encourage healing. With herbs, we get to influence positive change twice a day. These messages add up, so patients feel better, sooner.

Taking herbs is easy. We stock granular herbs, meaning they have already been cooked and dried into a powder. This powder is mixed with hot water and drunk like a tea. The whole week’s worth fits in a ziploc bag small enough to pop in a purse or pocket. Capsules may be available too for convenience.

Quality. Always.

The herbs in our pharmacy have undergone stringent testing following standards of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) established by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and World Health Organization (WHO). You can rest assured you receive pure and potent herbal medicine. Learn more about quality control here.
