Chinese Herbal formulas are synergistic combinations of 2 to over 20 individual herbs. They are prescribed in amazing specificity to each person’s full presentation, not by 1 or 2 symptoms alone. Five people could come in with headaches and each one would get a different formula! Herbal medicine is an excellent way to keep your treatments working for you non-stop in between office sessions.
Prescriptions are available in many different forms such as tinctures and teas, capsule, topical, or vape.
Quality nutraceuticals (professional grade nutritional supplements) are a very important part of a treatment protocol. These will likely be part of your optimal health prescriptions.
Additionally, 100% Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils are combined into Chinese Herbal Formula analogs as another very powerful tool of a healthful lifestyle.
