  • In the Chinese Herbal Consultation, Diagnosis, and Assessment we will:

  • View Tongue: A flabby, moist, pale-white tongue… a dry, red tongue with no coating… these and many more signs are indicators of health.

The treatment plan is your prescription for care!

Chinese Herbal Therapies and Nutrition

Chinese Herbal Medicines have been used safely and effectively for thousands of years. My study and practice of Oriental Medicine is rooted in the traditions of eating the right foods, minimizing or avoiding the wrong ones, and supplementing with natural sources such as vitamins and herbs.

In my pharmacy I include herbs from many traditions and areas around the planet, I insist on using herbs and herb companies that respect our natural resources. I do not use endangered species and the herbs I use are Organically Certified when possible and meet or exceed western pharmaceutical standards by using GMP, GLP and/or GAP (Good Manufacturing, Laboratory, and/or Agricultural Practices). I believe in providing the best quality and most potent herbs possible.

The goal is to make it easy for you to take them regularly so that you can feel the difference natural medicine makes!
