Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine can be used alone or in combination with Acupuncture and Craniosacral therapies and there are a variety of conditions that can be treated. People may be surprised to know that there are herbal formulas to prevent and treat the common cold. Herbal treatment can help strengthen immunity and fight symptoms of a cough, sinus infections and allergies, and treat symptoms of chronic conditions like gallbladder and kidney stones to delay the need for or avoid surgery.

Acupuncture alone is often effective for most conditions such as regulating the menstrual cycle but if there are some symptoms that are very severe like menstrual cramping, the addition of herbs to the treatment can make a big difference, and make the use of ibuprofen or stronger prescription drugs unnecessary. The herbs are safe and effective and side effects are rare. Cristi does find out what medications you may be taking to be sure that there are no unsafe herb-drug interactions.

Cristi prescribes herbal formulas in tablet, pill, or in a powder form that you dissolve in water and drink. The course of treatment can be a few days for acute conditions like a cold or sinus infections to a couple of months like menstrual problems or gallbladder disease.

Rate if combined with Acupuncture/Craniosacral Therapy: There is no additional cost for herbal consultation
