Classical East Asian medical diagnosis is the foundation for prescribing the right herbal formula for you. Once your individual requirements are understood, the correct formula can be provided.
Different herbs perform different functions, according to their nature and the conditions that they treat. Some herbs provide substances which help the body to repair or build healthy cells, while others act as a catalyst to stimulate body functions such as immunity, or elimination. Vitamin and mineral therapy can also be given according to the same principles as herbs, to treat deficiencies and illnesses.
Herbal medicine can be a useful co-treatment for patients with conditions that have not been responding quickly enough to standard treatments. When a condition or illness persists, there are frequently internal metabolic factors that are contributing to the condition.
In any chronic condition, examining eating habits is always the first priority, as the good effects of acupuncture and herbs can quickly be undone by an inappropriate diet.
