Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbal supplements are often recommended in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbology is recognized throughout the world and has a long history reaching back several thousand years.

External use of liniments and salves can also be very helpful in reducing local inflammation, pain and stiffness of muscles and joints.

Together we can determine which herbal supplements are best suited to meet your unique needs.

There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. Chinese herbs have been shown to be extremely effective and normally have minimal side effects, however it is very important to tell your practitioner about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with the herbal supplements that we might recommend.

The herbal dietary supplements recommended by AHC are sourced through suppliers that make every effort to ensure that the quality of their products meet the safety requirements of the FDA and the World Health Organization (WHO).
