” The healing comes from nature and not from the physician. Therefore, the physician must start from nature with an open mind.” – Paracelsus
Chinese Herbal Medicine dates back thousands of years and focuses on the use of plants, seeds, foods, spices, roots, flowers and natural life to treat disease, prevent illness, and balance constitution. Herbal medicine can be taken as tinctures, teas or capsules (akin to supplements). They are used to treat all types of complaints. They can be used both internally or externally. They can be used for both acute and chronic conditions. When used properly, herbal medicine is safe from addiction or side effects. I am very thoughtful about where I source my herbs and the companies that I prescribe so that safety, efficacy, and quality can be ensured.
