Why Is Herbal Medicine So Popular?

Essential-Acupuncture-Chicago-jewel

Here are just a few reasons…

It's Incredibly Safe

Skillfully prescribed, herbs are some of the safest medicines on Earth. And, our herbal supplier has some of the most stringent quality controls in the world.

Proven Results

Herbal medicine is one of the oldest and most widely used forms of therapy on planet Earth. The Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, and other major institutions now incorporate herbal medicine.

It's POWERFUL

Herbal medicines harness and amplify the most powerful healing tool ever discovered – YOU. Their power lies in their ability to awaken and guide your body’s innate healing resources.

...but GENTLE

Instead of forcefully pushing your body where it doesn’t want to go, herbs act as a gentle suggestion that reminds your body how to heal.

Herbal medicine has stood the test of time and continues to demonstrate effectiveness today.

How Herbal Medicine Works

Nourishes And Cleanses Depleted Glands And Tissues

When your cells, organs, and tissues are nourished and cleansed of toxins, they naturally function at a very high level. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.

Increases Tissue Strength WHILE Curing Disease

Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat chronic and non-life threatening conditions like migraine, digestive disorders, PMS, menstrual difficulties, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalance, and reproductive issues.

Gently Guides Your Body Towards Healing

When you use acupuncture to stimulate your body’s healing process, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

Harnesses Nature's Intelligence To Promote Vitality And Wellness

When nature’s intelligence is fully expressed in your body, you are naturally strong, resilient, and energetic. Studies have shown that your body will respond to the same herb differently depending on its needs. This tells us that herbal medicine speaks to the body’s healing system in a natural, unobtrusive way.

Common Questions

  • Do they taste bad?

    Our herbal delivery system uses granules, capsules or tinctures containing concentrated powdered extracts. They don’t always taste great but that’s okay because it’s medicine. With time your taste buds will adjust and it’s healthy to have your brain exposed to different flavors.

  • Will I have to take a bunch of herbs?

    Herbs are medical foods and sometimes require higher doses than with the typical vitamins or pharmaceutical drugs. However, we’re certain you’ll feel the trade off in terms of healing effects is well worth it.

  • Do I have to take them forever?

    Unlike with many medications, herbs gently guide your body back into balance. Once you’ve stabilized at your improved level of wellness, you can safely discontinue the herbs with no ill effects. Many of our patients choose to continue taking them, however, and this is perfectly safe should you choose to do so as well.

  • How often do I have to take the herbs?

    Typically you will take the herbs twice daily – once in the morning and once in the evening.

  • How do you know which herbs I need?

    We select herbs for you only after a careful and detailed history. You get exactly what you need – nothing more, nothing less.

  • What about my medications? Are there any interactions?

    Our experience is that herb/drug interactions are extremely rare and that, in many cases, patients are able to reduce their medications once they are on the right herbal combination. And, we are extremely skilled at knowing when we need to exercise caution with your herbal plan in relation to medications you might be taking.
