Welcome to the in-house herb dispensary. These are not over-the-counter herbs you can buy online or in a store.  These are often dosed at 5-30 times what you can buy at the store. Chinese herbal medicine is formulated, prescribed, and compounded for each individual patient in accordance with their unique patient needs which change over time.

Chinese herbs are combined in formulas to support your body’s natural healing mechanisms. Unlike drugs, they require time to work–typically one month for every year it took your illness to develop. Chinese herbs require prescription by a doctor of Oriental medicine who is trained in drug-herb interactions. Herbs are tested and certified by the FDA for purity, ensuring they are free from environmental toxins and contaminants.
