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 help treat everything from the common cold to symptoms associated with cancer.

There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. I can make suggestions to you for supplementing your daily regimen with either one herb or multiple herbs mixed in combination that will be tailored to your condition. These may be taken with your regular diet or may carry an enhanced effect with specific diet alterations, depending on your need. 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 unwanted interactions.
