Chinese herbal medicine works in conjunction with acupuncture to move Qi and blood, purge toxins, nourish and tonify.
In my practice, I use Chinese herbs in the form of granules (herbs decocted and dried), combined together into specific formulas for a patient’s condition. The condition could be irregular menstrual periods, fatigue, a weight issue etc. The granules are stirred into a cup of hot water and drunk as a tea usually before a meal. I also use patent herbal formulas in pill or capsule form. In addition, I find many western supplements to be necessary such as Vitamin B12, D3, Magnesium, B Complex etc.
