Are Chinese herbs safe?
We use high-grade non-sulfured (whenever possible) herbs in our herbal treatment,
and they are good manufacturing practice (GMP) certified. Herbs have a balancing
or regulating effect on the body and are gentler than pharmaceutical drugs.
Do they have side effects?
Side effects from herbs are possible, but they are usually minor. The most common
problems may include gas and bloating due to difficulty digesting the herb. If this
or any other problem occurs, discuss it with your practitioner to change your formula.
We keep up to date on any possible herb/drug interactions.
How are herbs administered?
We carry 2 forms of herbs at the clinic:
1) Teapill/Tablet: It is convenient and easiest to swallow. Its effect tends to be
mild, and its content can’t be modified as it is manufactured at the factory. It
is often used to treat general conditions.
2) Extracted Powder: It is dissolved in warm water before swallowing, and its taste
may be less pleasant than teapills. Effect is stronger, and it can be tailored based
on your conditions and needs.
