What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?
While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Chinese herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to symptoms associated with cancer.
Do I have to drink something that tastes bad?
At our clinic we only use Chinese Herbs in their capsule or tablet form. If you are looking for raw herbal formulas we will refer you to a specialist in that area.
How long do I take them for?
This will vary based on what we are treating with the herbs. Something like the common cold you may only take herbs for a few days while a more chronic condition may warrant you taking them for a couple of months. All of this will be discussed with your practitioner during your appointment.
