Nutritional Supplements and Herbs

Nutrition plays a major role in the healing process. When
you come in for your first treatment, we will discuss your
current nutritional choices and how they are helping or
hindering your health concerns. I am a big proponent of
focusing first on the healthy foods and supplements that we want to add into your diet.  Often adding one or two simple foods or nutritional supplements can make a big difference and help you to achieve faster healing results.  

Chinese herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Chinese herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to certain types of cancer.

There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. You will generally receive a mixture of several different herbs in a formula that has been tailored to your condition. Chinese herbs are extremely effective and normally have only mild side effects, however it is very important to tell me about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formula.
