Herbs and Diet

Herbal medicine can deliver dramatic positive effects, whether you are managing a short-term acute issue or need long-term support. Both Chinese and Western herbal medicines can powerfully enhance health and vitality, either used separately or in combination.  

Chinese herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to symptoms associated with cancer. Chinese herb formulations are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. Only the highest quality herbs, with full lot traceability and GMP certified are used. 

Western herbs are sourced from companies with a high commitment to quality, purity and manufacturing standards. Most western herbs are sourced from MediHerb®, an Australian company, which is a leader in herbal products for healthcare professionals in the United States. MediHerb® products are developed by experts and leaders in the field of herbal therapy, drawing on the latest scientific evidence, as well as centuries of traditional knowledge.

Chinese Dietary Theory
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) deals with the properties of foods, its affects on health, and the therapeutic use of foods in the preservation of health and in the prevention and treatment of illnesses. "Let Food be Thy Medicine" was believed in many ancient cultures. Dietary theory has existed as long as the human race, with good reason. For many of us, food is something we can do ourselves and enjoy doing it as well.
