Using the most sophisticated form of natural medicine in the world, many common health problems and diseases can be effectively treated with this natural and safe approach.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete medical science with its own theory of how the physiology functions, its own diagnostic techniques, and treatment modalities which include Acupuncture and herbal prescriptions. The cornerstone of Traditional Chinese Medicine is Chinese herbology, which has a 2,000 year old history of continual revision and success. It is one of the most sophisticated clinical systems in the world for analyzing patterns of ill health and successfully treating them.
Unlike Western herbology, which promotes single herbs with singular benefits, Chinese herbology uses herbs in combination to treat multiple disorders. Our Chinese herbal pharmacopoeia also contains numerous proprietary herbal formulas for tonifying the vitality of the human physiology, something that is not readily available in Western herbology. Herbs are very powerful, but to be effective they must be prescribed based on a proper diagnosis and on an individual basis.
