This is the first “Herbal Profile” segment on the Alchemist Eating blog. In each segment, we’ll offer a brief overview of the month’s featured herbs and supplements.
When prescribing these or other medicinals as part of Herbal Therapy at Alchemist Clinic, we consider each patient and each case individually. Indeed, one thing that sets Chinese Medicine apart from many other modalities is our awareness that the best, most appropriate medicine varies from person-to-person and pattern-to-pattern.
Even when two people come in with identical main complaints (e.g., back pain, flu or headache) or have been diagnosed with the exact same western disease (e.g., IBS, multiple sclerosis or osteoarthritis), each may leave with a completely different, highly customized herbal formula. In most cases, they will also receive targeted dietary and lifestyle recommendations to complement herbal therapy and optimize treatment outcomes.
The herbs and supplements featured in this series will, for the most part, offer broad, foundational support. That being said, the caveat above is an important one. We will always work with you to determine the right medicinals for your needs.
Keeping this in mind, today’s profile offers a simple approach to…
