Herbal Medicine

We are 4th Generation in Natural Medicine with Herbal Formulas From the Emperor’s Royal Physician of the Qin Dynasty.

Herbal medicines are prescribed for patients on a personal level. These herbs have over 4000 years of research, history and use. Our classical herbal formulas have been handed down by family from the Emperor's Royal Physician of the Qin Dynasty. Each patient has different needs, our bodies are unique, and illnesses stem from different causes.    Therefore the prescriptions are individualized for every patient and are adjusted periodically. There are those who read an article in a magazine and run to the nearest nutrition store to get "healthy". They look for single herbs or formulated herbs, not realizing the dosage, quality, nature, property, and entering system of these natural herbs.   Even though these herbs pose little or no side effect when administered by a skilled physician, it is still medicine - requiring supervision by a qualified specialist. Each herb is unique and must not be mishandled. Internally cold-natured patients cannot use certain herbs; internally hot-natured patients cannot use certain herbs.

Internally cold-natured patients cannot use certain herbs; internally hot-natured patients cannot use certain herbs. Some herbs cannot be used in combination, while pregnant women, lactating women, small children, or the elderly cannot use certain other herbs. Qualified herbalists go through intense training and are taught everything about individual herbs and herbal formulas. The dosages have to be regulated, conflicting herbs cannot be used together, the stages of patients need to be monitored, and the herbal formulas need to be changed according to the change in the patient’s condition. Although herbs are natural, they are not to be utilized carelessly and unknowingly.

WHAT IS HERBAL MEDICINE?

Herbal medicine is within the scope of natural medicine, which is the oldest, continually practiced professional medicine. “More people have been treated with herbs and acupuncture than all systems of medicine combined.” It is based on an individualized pattern diagnosis as well as a disease diagnosis. Your pattern is made up of signs, symptoms, emotions, temperament, and overall body composition. The written herbal prescription is designed to target the individual pattern as well as the symptom or disease. An herbal medicine prescription may include 6 to 18 different herbs. Herbal medicine is a complete system, containing physical, biological, and chemical properties.

SOURCES OF HERBS

The majority of herbs are derived from the plant kingdom, using the radix, rhizoma, folium, and fructus of the plant, depending on the nature of the illness. They may include the leaf, flower, twig, fruit, stem, root, tuber, rhizome, and bark. Some herbs are from animal and mineral sources. And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. – Genesis 1:29-30

By administering safe and effective treatments, we help others without compounding damage and causing unwanted side effects. This is the principle of our clinic and our style of natural medicine.

FIND THE BEST HERBALIST

Although herbal medicine is safe when prescribed by a trained and knowledgeable practitioner, it is still medicine. Patients should ask about where the practitioner was trained, how long the training was, how long he/she has been in practice, and what experience the practitioner has had in treating the patient’s specific ailment.  Most importantly, find out the background of the herbal medicine specialist. (e.g. experience, knowledge, years of education, years of medical excellence, good reputation, RESULTS, etc.) Ask about the qualifications first. In the state of California, the Board of Medical Quality Assurance certifies those who pass a state board qualifying examination. We hope that you have found answers to questions about herbal medicine. Call 714-979-9791 for an appointment.
