Herbal medicine uses plants, minerals and other organic substances to treat a variety of health concerns. Our herbal formulations can be used to benefit every system in the body: cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, reproductive, digestive and even your skin! This system of medicine can be used alone or in conjunction with the other treatments we offer at AcuHealth. Herbal formulations can be consumed internally as a tea or tablet, or used topically as a mask, poultice, liniment, soak or salve.
All herbal consults begin with a thorough health history, similar to our other treatment options. In order to write a custom herb formulation it is important to discuss your current symptoms, underlying diagnoses, known allergies you may have or irritants that you have encountered, and your current list of medications/supplements.
Want to know the best part about this service? We offer both in person and virtual consults for your comfort and convenience. Our virtual platform is HIPAA compliant and easy to use. Call us today to set up your in-person or virtual appointment for herbal medicine! We can’t wait to work with you.
