Botanical (Herbal) Medicine and Supplemental Recommendation
Botanical medicine has been used since the beginning of civilization and is the basis for modern pharmacology. Plants are used worldwide for their healing properties and nutritional values. Plants have been shown to have many pharmacological actions. Some of the properties shown in plants include having anti-cancer, antidepressant, anti-anxiety, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, sedative, hormone balancing, immune system boosting, cholesterol/blood pressure/ blood sugar lowering, liver cleansing, digestion improving and laxative properties.
I will make customized formulations specific to your health concerns. As a part of a thorough intake, I will be asking you about your current medical conditions, currently used medications/supplements, allergies to medications and past prior hospitalization to ensure that your pharmaceutical and botanical medications are working synergistically together. Botanical (herbal) medicines comes in many forms, including capsules, pills, tablets, tinctures (a concentrated, liquid form of botanical medicine used in small amounts), salves and creams. After around 3-6 weeks you will start seeing benefits from your botanical prescription. After results are established, dosage will be changed to a lower maintenance dose with an eventual goal of complete removal of the medication.
