Herbal Treatments

Herbs are an integral part of many treatment plans. Whereas Acupuncture treatments are often received only once a week, herbs are taken every day two to three times a day.

Because CCM is holistic and considers each patient individually, a custom herbal prescription is designed to treat the symptoms, the disease and also their individual constitution. Herbal medicine should have no side effects. Most herbs have a very low toxicity compared to even common, over the counter Western drugs.

In our office we use Japanese Kampo Formulas, powdered extract herbs to create individualized formulas, as well as patent pills of traditional formulas.
