Chinese Herbal Medicine Pasadena
Chinese Herbal Medicine offers a time-proven solution for your health problems. Chinese Herbal Medicine can treat most of our modern diseases using the most sophisticated forms of natural medicine in the world. Many pharmaceutical drugs prescribed today actually come from herbs, but because of the synthetic and processed nature of these prescription drugs, they come with many side effects that are experienced daily. Some of these symptoms include dizziness, insomnia, gas, heartburn, weight changes, and a decreased sex drive.
One of the cornerstones of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is Chinese herbology, which has a 3,000-year history of continued evolution and success. It is one of the most sophisticated clinical systems in the world for analyzing patterns of ill health and treating them successfully. Unlike the generic herbal supplements that you see at a health food store, we offer customized Chinese herbal formulas for our patients. Herbs are very powerful, but to be effective they must be prescribed based on the individual. Generic Herbal supplements are often “hit or miss” in effectiveness because no two people are 100% the same. The most important factor with Chinese herbal prescriptions is that a proper diagnosis is made and the patient is prescribed a custom formula based on their diagnosis.
The ultimate goal of Chinese Herbal Medicine is to always address the root causes of disease and to heal the whole body without sacrificing the integrity of its parts. Thus, each herb in the formula is selected to strengthen and balance each other as a synergistic whole, so that the patient can heal quickly and safely. At Dr. Chen’s Acupuncture & Wellness Center, we offer custom herbal formulas for your health concerns.
