Herbal Medicine

Herbal consults can be combined with acupuncture or be given as stand alone treatments - which can be especially helpful for those who are squeamish about needles. Herbal products can be used both internally and externally. I provide custom compounded herbal teas, tinctures, concentrates, liniments, patches and high quality manufactured pills.  I implement traditional Chinese herbs as well as local bioregional herbs to help with your wellness goals. All the imported herbs I use are tested or locally grown to insure their highest quality and safety. The medical grade Chinese herbs that I use go through rigorous safety testing [1].

Herbal medicine is the chronicled science of using plants, roots, and minerals to treat diseases [2]. Mankind has been using plant medicine for likely all of its documented history [3,4]. Many modern drugs are derived from well known traditional medicines [5]. Herbs are often gentle and side effect free. Herbs can complement modern treatments, or in many instances be used instead of over the counter medication [6].
