Why Herbal Medicine?
Arguably the oldest form of human medicine, herbs offer a complex mixture of phytochemicals which protect the body while effectively guiding it to a balanced state. The Chinese unique style of herbalism is founded on advanced medical theory and the ability to distinguish various constitutional types and medical patterns. Chinese herbal medicines tend to be prescribed in very large quantities (often 5-10x the strength of an average bottle of western herb capsules) and this allows for them to produce results very quickly, often faster than western medicines. Because of the natural complexity of herbs and humans longstanding relationship with them (100s of thousands of years), herbal medicines are able to create these powerful health outcomes without extreme side effects, while adding much needed nourishment to our bodies.
