HERBAL MEDICINE, SUPPLEMENTS AND MORE
Herbal Medicine. We all like the idea of it, but…can I trust it? is a common question. Herbs have a Long history of helping people with minimal or no side effects. Further, Chinese medicine is known for its sophisticated and balanced formulas that treat both symptom and underlying issue. My training in Chinese medicine lets me prescribe herbal formulas for a broad range issues that can be boiled down to three things: Belly, Brain and Pain (digestive issues, emotional problems and physical pain). Given that science has identified many glandular functions, we also carry Western supplements that address them, along with other products for pain and for sleep. All products come rigorously tested for quality control.
Chinese medicine has a three-thousand year history of developing formulas for almost any problem, whether internal or external. Diagnosis, while different from Western diagnosis, is surprisingly accurate. A typical formula may have anywhere from one to twenty herbs in it, each with its function. The goal of Chinese Herbs is twofold: to treat the symptom, and work toward eliminating the underlying cause.
Among the issues treated are:
Chinese Herbology has over three thousand years of experience with sleep dysfunction. Whether you have a hard time getting to sleep, staying asleep or both, the herbs we stock can be of help. Chinese Medicine is very much symptom specific. If you tend to run cold, we might prescribe one over a different one for someone who is experiencing hot flashes. A supplement such as 5-HTP might be used rather than Melatonin for someone whose Cortisol levels are out of control. We also have several CBD products that are highly effective for helping the sympathetic nervous system calm down at night.
Certain herb formulas are targeted for neck, shoulder, back or joint pain. Others are more for an arthritic condition. We also use high grade salves for pain.
The ability to ease anxiety naturally, and without drugs, is one of the great claims that Chinese medicine can make. For the average New York City dweller, this is almost a must. Supplements that help reboot the nervous system are also essential. If your adrenal system is fatigued, we make it our mission to help .repair it, using supplements, herbs and other natural methods.
This is a broad category encompassing issues from IBS to acid reflux, constipation and diarrhea. Chinese medicine can go a long way toward helping all of them, as can targeted supplements. We diagnose and then treat for whichever problem you are experiencing.
In of itself, the word stress is vague, but you know it when you’ve got it. It’s often a feeling of tension that simply won’t go away. Herbs can help greatly to unwind the sympathetic nervous system and jumpstart the relaxing parasympathetic nervous system.
