Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical science with its own theory of how human physiology functions, its own diagnostic techniques, and treatment modalities which include Acupuncture and herbal prescriptions. The cornerstone of TCM is Chinese herbology, which has a 3,000-year history of continual evolution and success. It is one of the most sophisticated clinical systems in the world for analyzing patterns of ill health and treating them successfully.
Since most pharmaceutical drugs actually come from herbs, it makes sense to investigate the source of our modern chemical medicine, without suffering the side effects that many Americans experience daily using pharmaceutical drugs.
Unlike the generic herbal supplements that you buy at a vitamin store or health food store, we offer customized Chinese herbal formulas for our patients. Herbs are very powerful, but to be effective they must be prescribed on an individual basis. Generic herbal supplements have a ‘hit or miss’ effectiveness. The important thing with herbs is a proper diagnosis and an individualized prescription.
