Chinese Herbal Medicine:

Chinese herbs have been used medicinally for thousands of years.  When prescribed by a trained herbalist they are safe and have minimal side effects.  Herbal medicine is often used with acupuncture in the treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions.

Chinese herbs are usually prescribed in a formula consisting of several herbs.  These formulas are based on classical formulas which can be modified to suit the individual for whom they are prescribed.  The combination of herbs can increase the benefit for the individual while minimizing side effects.

Herbal formulas may be prescribed as tea pills, tablets, powders, granules or decoctions.  I send all herbal prescriptions to Kamwo pharmacy,
