Herbal medicine is the oldest and still the most widely used system of medicine in the world today. It is used in all societies and is common to all cultures.
Herbs are an important part of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Chinese herbal medicine has over 2000 year history with more than a thousand plant, mineral and animal combinations. Many diseases are treated successfully by Chinese medicine. Herbal treatments are a very cost effective treatment option for most people, especially those who want to avoid or get off prescription medication.
The herbs that we use are double laboratory tested for safety and potency. The herbs themselves range from familiar things such as ginger and turmeric to relatively exotic roots, berries, flowers, seeds, and twigs. Most of the herbs are available in pill form, but sometimes powdered concentrate extracts are used to make custom instant teas. Other forms of herbs such as, liquid, alcohol extracts or topical ointments are also used when appropriate.
