Chinese Five Element theory utilizes the interrelationship of the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our lives in order to support health and treat disease. Each element engenders another. Each element can also stress another. Discovering how these elements interplay in our lives can invite more balance, ease, and well being.
Chinese medical herbs are often recommended during the course of treatment to augment and support your best health. Prescriptions are tailored to you. Your health goals, any medications prescribed or over the counter, and the specific conditions we are treating are taken into account. Generally, herbal therapies are recommended for a period of treatment and not used indefinitely.
For internal herbal medicine you ingest, we can recommend the use raw herbs you can cook into a tea, patent formulas that are already made into pill form, powdered dry herbs, and tinctures. For external herbal medicine that you would apply to your skin, we provide linaments, herbally infused oils and the essential oils of plants.
Many Chinese Medical herbs are in our diet. Examples of this include chicken eggs, cinnamon, cloves, millet, rice, green onions, cardamom. Often adjustments in our diet and sleep habits can have a profound impact in improving health goals. I prefer to recommend dietary adjustments to selling additional prescriptions when I believe those changes can have great effect. Classes in food preparation appropriate to recommended diets are available during the course of treatment upon request.
