Chinese herbal medicine and Nutritional therapy can be used in conjunction with acupuncture or on its own.
An integral part of Oriental medicine, the use of herbal medicines can substantially aid in the restoration and maintenance of balance in the body. Herbs are highly specific in their actions and herbal formulas contain unique compounds that target both the symptoms and the root causes of the patient’s imbalances.
Made from organic substances such as plants, flowers, minerals, and other natural substances, herbal remedies have been used effectively for thousands of years, in fact, serving as a model for most modern drug therapies. The use of herbal or botanical substances very rarely elicits side effects, but monitoring by a trained professional is always essential.
At TCR Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine, we combine the use of traditional recommendations along with modern, well researched nutritional compounds as part of treatment for most disorders. This may include food, vitamins, and/or supplements.
