What is Chinese Herbology?

During the Chinese Herbal assessment, I determine which type of herbal formula is appropriate for your constellation of symptoms and signs. The formula assists your body-mind to heal, and is taken only temporarily until the imbalance is resolved.

Herbs are never given for one specific symptom. That approach can cause side effects. In Chinese herbology, each symptom means little by itself and acquires meaning only in relationship to your other symptoms and signs. Therefore, a particular symptom in one context does not necessary mean the same thing in another context. These principles are unique to the traditional Chinese Herbal assessment technique.

A Chinese assessment includes, but is not limited to, the following: your overall vitality, thermal perceptions, perspiration and respiration patterns, food and fluid intake, urinary, bowel and reproductive patterns, respiratory and skin conditions, pain assessment, sensory perceptions, sleep patterns, and your predominant personality and moods. In conjunction with a tongue and pulse analysis, this information is used to create your customized Chinese herbal formula.

What is Medical Nutrition Therapy? 

Medical Nutrition Therapy aims to uncover the nutritional and metabolic imbalances behind your health issues.

Medical Nutrition Therapy can augment conventional medicine by improving the therapeutic effect and by decreasing unwanted side effects.

Medical Nutrition Therapy
promotes a healthy diet as the foundation, while supplements are used to support specific health issues and promote healing.

Nutritional supplements can be used to promote healing and optimize specific physiological processes. They can
include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, co-factors, enzymes, whole herbs, herbal extracts, probiotics and prebiotics.

Nutritional supplements often have therapeutic quantities of specific
nutritional support factors over and above what can be naturally found in normal quantities of food.
