herbal medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the great herbal systems of the world.  Like acupuncture, Chinese herbs can address unhealthy body patterns that manifest in a variety of symptoms and complaints. The aims of Chinese herbal therapy are to help you regain balance in your body and to strengthen your body's resistance to disease

Chinese herbs are usually prescribed in combination to increase the efficacy of the formula and help decrease any possible side effects. Most importantly, the goal of treatment is not to simply relieve symptoms but to treat the internal imbalance at the root of the problem.

Chinese herbal medicine can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, and hives,

  • Gastrointestinal disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome, chronic constipation, and ulcerative colitis,

  • Gynecological conditions, including pre-menstrual syndrome and dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, and infertility,

  • Respiratory conditions, including asthma, bronchitis, chronic coughs, and allergies,

  • Rheumatological conditions (e.g. osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis),

  • Urinary conditions including chronic cystitis,

  • Psychological issues (e.g. depression, stress, and anxiety).
