Herbal therapies have been used throughout history and almost one fourth of pharmaceutical drugs are derived from botanicals. The decreasing efficacy of synthetic drugs and the increasing contraindications of their usage, or side effects make natural drugs valuable. Products are either used alone, together with other herbs or medications when the combination is more effective, or as an add-on to traditional prescriptions.
Our health care professionals have unique knowledge that comes from supplemental education, shared research and expertise from our manufacturers and distributors. It is recommended you consult with one of our health care professionals before using any supplements or herbs.
We carry common dietary supplements including vitamins and minerals (Vitamin B, C, multi-vitamins, Vitamin D and more), botanicals, such as St. John’s Wort, and substances that come from a natural source, such as Omega-3 fatty acids. Some dietary supplements can help ensure that you get an adequate dietary intake of essential nutrients; others may help you reduce your risk of disease and improve your quality of life.
Offering a root-level attack rather than a symptom cover, Chinese Medicine provides an added layer of patient safety. It carries fewer or no side effects compared to Western medications, treats the actual cause of illness rather than suppressing the symptoms, and provides an affordable, alternative treatment option. Our trained Chinese herbal specialist compounds Chinese herbs on-site. We source the highest quality products available.
Chinese Herbal therapy spans a continuum of care split into 3 unique phases to wellness. The rate at which you move through each of these 3 phases depends on your unique situation. A good rule of thumb is one month of care for every year you have had a certain medical condition.
During this phase, the focus is on relief care of your symptoms; it’s like removing weeds from an overgrown garden. The first step is to cut back excess growth and weeds. Symptoms are like the weeds. Relief care is temporary and in the end you will have to get it corrected anyway. That’s why it always costs more than correction.Phase 2: Corrective Care.
Corrective Care is focused on fixing the health issue and correct it. It takes time to correct, just like it takes time to get into shape. In order to restore your health, your doctor determines the underlying cause of your illness, rather than simply addressing the symptoms. This involves a second herbal formula uniquely positioned and carefully prescribed to address the root of your concerns. Often, patients stay in the second treatment phase for two to six months. Continuing the garden analogy, we now must take complete care to remove the weeds from the soil and prepare the soil for new seeds to plant. Using appropriate tools, the roots are extracted, leaving healthy plants and rich earth behind. Step 2 heals what is creating and causing your pain and discomfort, setting the stage for healthy living.Phase 3: Wellness & Maintenance Care
The final phase of your care includes Wellness & Maintenance Therapy. Your doctor will prescribe tonics and other herbal formulas to keep your immune system strong and healthy, so it will protect the body as it should. The final phase of treatment is on-going maintenance to stay healthy. In the garden analogy, after the soil of our reclaimed garden is fertilized and treated to prevent the return of weeds, we can build a healthy foundation to support the growth of new plants. The Chinese herbs help protect your overall health, just as the garden is protected and allowed to thrive.
