Chinese Herbal Formulas are often recommended for certain conditions. As a highly effective form of internal medicine, herbal formulas can be prescribed for nearly any ailment or disease that one might have; including dermatological problems, menstrual disorders, insomnia, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune disease, menopausal symptoms, neurological disorders, common cold, respiratory problems, and much more.
Chinese herbology rarely uses single herbs (although exceptions do exist). Rather, formulas consisting of anywhere from 3-14 herbs are usually given. These formulas are often classical formulas, written hundreds or even thousands of years ago, and have been proven to be safe and effective medicinals through centuries of use.
These herbal remedies are strategically formulated for each individual who has received a complete clinical evaluation. Chinese herbal medicines are energetic agents that serve similar functions as acupuncture therapies. For patients who have challenging physical and/or mental health conditions, the use of both acupuncture and herbal medicine always yields the strongest results.
