Herbal medicine comes in raw tea form, powder or pills, in descending order of price and potency. They cost anywhere from $10-50/week and prescription duration can range from a few days to a few months, depending on the condition. Chinese herbs are scientifically studied and often indispensable to treating chronic illness. The formulas I use are manufactured in California, Oregon or New York, and tested to confirm accuracy and purity. I do offer tele-health herbal consultations, which for chronic conditions most often requires bi-weekly visits over the course of a few months.

HOW TO TAKE HERBS: 

  • Not before 8am or after 8pm. Ideally in hot water, but not caffeine, as it may interfere with absorption. 

  • 1-2 hours apart from other drugs, also to prevent interference. 

  • Ideally 30-90 minutes before meals, unless otherwise instructed. However, more important than taking herbs "ideally" is taking them consistently, so with or without food is OK. 

  • Should you catch a cold while taking any formula discontinue it and wait to resume until the cold is fully resolved. 

  • It is not odd or excessive for an herbalist to prescribe 8-15 pills at a time. Keep in mind this is food-grade medicine.

  • If the taste is too bitter for you it's best to chase with lemon water or brush your teeth. Do not add sugar or honey. 

We often recommend supplements, but it is important to buy from a reputable source, such as Fullscript, and a reputable brand, per the advice of your health care provider.
