Herbal formulas are constructed individually by diagnosing a Chinese Medicine pattern of disharmony. Patterns of disharmony address imbalances in the system by tongue diagnosis and pulse diagnosis. The practitioner will also want to know the symptoms that you desire to address. Herbal formulas can treat patterns of disharmony that translate into: onset of cold and flu, pain, sleeplessness, digestive, and mood regulation. The formulas are individually tailored for your symptoms and the root cause of your symptoms.
The steps to herbal therapy include treatment of symptoms (branch), and the underlying imbalance in the system which manifest as symptoms. Treatment progression moves from treating the acute symptoms, treatment of chronic issues, and then maintenance. Herbal formulas are tailored for each step in the progression. Herbal therapy is a gentle and effective means of restoring health.
