Chinese Herbal Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Herbology

An Ancient Medical Science

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical science with its own theory of human physiology, diagnosis methods, and treatment modalities; Acupuncture and herbal prescriptions are among the most well-known modalities.

Based on a tradition of over 2000 years, Chinese herbology consists of over 1000 herbs in the pharmacopeia. Unlike Western herbology where one herb is often used, Chinese herbal prescriptions usually consist of multiple herbs to enhance the overall effect.  It’s very much like an orchestra playing a symphony compared to a solo instrument producing a much grander effect. Additionally, each formula is prescribed based on an individual’s diagnosis and personal state of health.

Our herbal pharmacy boasts an extensive collection of time-proven Chinese herbal formulas. Our herb supplier was carefully selected from numerous suppliers because we want to ensure the purity, safety, and potency of the herbal extracts. It is important to our practice that our supplier follows the current standards of Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) established by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and World Health Organization (WHO).
