How Important are Herbs?

We strongly believe in the healing properties of Chinese herbal medicine. Using Chinese herbal medicine, we generally do not use single herbs to treat conditions, but consider each patient’s unique situation to formulate an individualized herbal prescription using a variety of Chinese herbs. Some herbal formulas may have from as few as 2 herbs to as many as 25 herbs or more.

From the traditional Chinese medical perspective, multiple herbs work in synergy to create a much more potent and effective formula than single herbs alone. Herbal formulas come in different forms. The most common are teas, pills, external washes, and ointments.
