Chinese Herbology

Chinese Herbal Medicine is a unique and ancient form of Herbalism; rather than using a single herb for a single condition (such as ginseng for energy, or ginko for memory) Chinese herbology combines two or more plant, mineral, or (on rare occasion) animal substances to create a custom formula designed to address a specific problem or set of problems. (Formulas can easily be made free of animal products to comply with dietary restrictions of any patient)  Similar to Acupuncture, the intended goal of Chinese herbology is to promote the body's own healing functions and re-establish a harmonious flow of Qi.
