Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine is a unique and sophisticated way of combining herbs to formulate prescriptions specific to the patient’s medical needs. Chinese herbs are well-known for their minimal side effects with maximum results. The herbs prescribed in our pharmacy come from reputable, licensed companies that use only the freshest quality herbal ingredients. Some herbs and western drugs may be combined, and we will inform you appropriately.

A Multi-Step Approach to Wellness

Whole food supplements that we carry come from a certified organic farm. This improves health by:

Chinese Herbal Medicine, dating back thousands of years, relies on a root-level attack, rather than a symptom based treatment. This means there is usually a multi-step approach to wellness. Initially, your acute symptoms will be addressed, in order to alleviate the immediate reasons for seeking our services. Once the acute symptoms are eliminated, the root of the illness, or the underlying cause, will be addressed. This would be considered the middle step to approaching better health. The next phase or final phase of your treatment plan will be prophylactic care. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and supplements may be prescribed to keep your immune system strong, pain levels low, and keep you living healthy.

We only carry herbal medicines and supplements that ensures purity, safety and potency in the herbal extracts by following standards of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) established by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and World Health Organization (WHO).

Whole food supplements that we carry come from a certified organic farm. This improves health by:

  • All of the seeds are organic (when available), and always untreated and free of genetically modified organisms (GMO)
  • Zero tolerance for genetically modified seed, synthetic herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, or synthetic seed treatments. Whole foods are cultivated with only natural nutrition and no synthetic fertilizer.
  • Our purveyors concentrate on the soil to ensure maximum soil health. That’s why every field is professionally tiled to optimize drainage. And, soil testing levels are set well beyond what’s required because well-managed soil produces high-quality raw materials.
  • Irrigation water is supplied from a naturally occurring artesian flowage, although watering is as infrequent as possible to encourage the roots to dig deep down and find nutrition.
