Classical Chinese Herbal Medicine
Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture are synergistic therapeutic modalities that are often used together.
These are safe, effective ways to improve one’s health over the long term. The use of Chinese Herbal medicine can help us get to the deepest root of our illness.
Groundswell stocks a medicinary of the highest quality we can attain. We confidently use these herbs to make formulas specific to each of our patients.
An effective formula is put together according to the principles of classical combining. The formulas we put together are rooted in the classical literature of Chinese Medicine and are often modified to work specifically with the body’s complex presentation.
Often Chinese herbs are taken for a period of several months to get to the root of the problem. The formula is changed weekly or monthly depending on how the body responds.
Herbs may be prescribed in many forms: teas, granules, tinctures, capsules, or pills. I most often will suggest a tea from granules. This allows me to create a customized formula just for you.
Chinese Herbal Medicine rarely causes any side effects.
