Custom Herb Formulas
We provide custom herb formulas for our patients in the clinic. These herbs are a vital complement to acupuncture therapy and ensure the best outcomes. If you do not require herbal therapy you will not be advised to use herbs, but most patients do need the herbs for a full and speedy recovery.
Powder formulas contain only ground certified organic herbs that can be added to smoothies, yogurt, kefir, or oatmeal. The advantage is that they are more economical than capsules. The disadvantage is that you may not like the taste of the herbs and they are not very convenient to use. It is better to add the herbs to a small amount of your smoothie, for example, rather than putting the herbs in a large batch of smoothie as you will have to drink the large smoothie with herbs that won't taste great for the whole smoothie. Better to get the herbs down in a smaller batch.
Our encapsulator makes two bottles of capsules at a time. For this reason, we have a two-bottle, or two-month minimum since the formulas are be blended just for you.
Many new patients will mention that they already tried herbs. However, they never used herbs as a comprehensive holistic treatment utilizing a Chinese medical diagnosis. We aren't some health food store giving you stuff off the shelf we think might help you; we are giving you an herbal prescription that we know will help you based on your specific diagnosis.
