Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbal medicine has been practiced for at least 2,500 years. Chinese herbal formulas come in various forms such as pills, tablets, liquid tinctures or teas.

Chinese herbs work effectively because your practitioner acknowledges that you are not merely your disease. Unlike western pharmaceutical medicine and western herbal practices which primarily treat symptoms, practitioners of Chinese medicine design a unique herbal formula and administration protocol especially for each patient that changes as the patient's body's health changes.

Many prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs only treat symptoms and have side effects. When taken under the supervision of a trained practitioner, Chinese herbs have no side effects and treat the root cause of disease as well as the symptom. When patients are treated at the root level, symptoms do not readily return.

Topical herbal remedies, such as Woodlock oil or Zheng Gu Shui for arthritic pain, are easy to self-prescribe

Before taking herbs notify your practitioner if:
  • You are allergic to substances such as wheat, seafood or mushrooms.
  • You are taking prescription medication. Some herbs may reduce the efficacy of important prescription medicines.
  • You are taking other herbs or minerals.
  • You are vegetarian, because some formulas contain animal products.
Treatments with herbs only and no acupuncture are available at Arvada Acupuncture & Wellness.

Before taking any herbs internally, I urge the public to seek advice from a trained, qualified herbalist rather than self-administer herbs. A qualified practitioner is trained to understand the indications and contraindications of herbal administration. Just because a product is natural does not always mean it is safe, or that it's the most effective for your condition. Herbs should be taken in specifically measured doses and many herbs should not be ingested for prolonged periods of time.
