Herbal Medicine

Chinese-herbsPlants have been an integral part of Chinese Medicine since the beginning of the common era. Herbalists use the principles of Chinese diagnosis and treatment to construct formulas that not only treat a patient’s symptoms, but also treat the underlying root of the problem, thereby restoring balance to the whole person. Traditional herbalists provide their patients with raw herbs to cook and drink as teas. Many people today find the prospect of preparing their own formula daunting, so formulas are now available to be taken as tablets. Wallowa Mountain Acupuncture primarily uses formulas made by the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Portland. (www.itmonline.org). Their formulas have proven to be of the highest quality, both in terms of safety and effectiveness.
