Incorporating Herbal Formulas, Homeopathy and Vitamin & Mineral Supplements

Ayurvedic and Chinese herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture to ensure a biochemical correction within the body and enhance therapeutic effect. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousands of years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to symptoms associated with cancer.

Together we can tailor a course of treatment to meet your unique health needs.

There are thousands of herbs in the materia medica, hundreds of which are commonly used. You will generally receive a mixture of several different herbs in a formula that has been tailored to your condition.
Ayurvedic herbology originated in India and uses a system of medicine very similar to Oriental Medicine, which has also shown to be strongly effective when used to improve prognosis and quicken the healing process.
Chinese herbs are powerfully effective with very mild, if any, side effects. However, it is very important to tell your practitioner about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formula.

Western herbs, along with vitamins and minerals, are well known and often used in Western medicine. This category of herbs are an important part of a well-rounded treatment plan. Most chronic illnesses Americans currently suffer from are due to the result of a long-term deficiency in essential vitamins and minerals in their diet. With the proper dosage of these vitamins and minerals incorporated into a daily regimen, nutrient levels can rise, causing many of these conditions to improve and even resolve themselves.

Homeopathy is 200 years old and has shown to be a safe, gentle, effective system of medicine that seeks to stimulate the body’s own natural healing capacity. Rather than a typical biochemical reaction as with most western drugs, homeopathic remedies do not override the body's natural mechanisms. In fact, it follows the "less is more" concept. By adhering to a minimal dose method, homeopathic remedies have a strong, empowering influence - they gently coax the body to effectively eliminate disease and heal itself.
