Chinese Medicine/Diet therapy
“let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food”
In most part of Asia including China, foods and herbal medicine are not separated and used on daily basis. Medicinal mushrooms, bitter melon, garlic and ginger are a good examples of this type of food/medicine.
In many part of Asia, emergency facilities are not accessible like they are in US or Europe. Many people use folk remedies/food therapy for treating many illnesses. It’s more economical and available for many more people. Conditions such as common cold, sore throat, headaches, muscle pain can be treated with home remedies such as ginger poultices, garlic & chive soup with medicinal mushrooms.
In my practice, Herbal formulas are used based on each individual needs and pattern of disharmony. Symptoms relief are common effects of Acupuncture while taking care of the root problem takes longer and is lifetime journey. Each individual has different constitution and raised in different environment, foods as a medicine, adjust disharmony and restore the ability of body to heal itself. One raised in damp tropical environment, need to stay away from dairy product. If you are wondering about your constitution, stop by our office.
Are Chinese Medicine Safe?
Yes, Chinese Medicine are safe and very effective. My family and I use these herbal remedies every day. All the formulas have been manufactured in US and before packaging they go through very thorough testing for heavy metal & other toxicity. Evergreen is major manufacturer which follow the standards of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) established by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and World Health Organization(WHO).
