With formal education in Eastern and Western herbalism, we utilize substances from the Western and Chinese Materia Medicas. Plant medicine has been used from time immemorial on every continent and throughout all cultures. Clinical trials confirm hundreds, if not thousands, of botanical substances to be safe and effective, and without unwanted side effects when used under proper supervision by a qualified practitioner.
Herbal consultations may be included with acupuncture appointments at no extra charge.
Standalone herbal consults are $45 - 120 sliding scale, plus cost of medicine.
We carry a wide range of options, including herbs that are safe for children and elders, or people who are pregnant, nursing, or taking medications, at prices to suit any budget.
Until the invention of the Patent system of medicine, Western doctors, pharmacists, and hospitals routinely combined botanicals with pharmaceuticals, and continue to do in many parts of the world with great clinical success. Why limit our treatment options to one tool when we can combine tools to save money and lives, and protect our health and the health of our loved ones? When used correctly, under guidance of a qualified professional, herbal medicine is both safe and effective. We have the tools at our fingertips. And often, growing right under our feet.
Many of our herbs and extracts are through sister business, Amphoterica Botanicals. Local herbs are organically grown or sustainably wildcrafted, then processed and compounded on site into traditional formas and custom remedies. Small batch medicine means herbs and ingredients are always fresh, relationships are cultivated with local growers, and plants are not overharvested.
We also carry Evergreen Herbs, a Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal company that guarantees high quality herbs free of chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, and microorganisms. These formulas are used in clinics and hospitals in China and around the world.
From Evergreen Herbs: “Repeated testing ensures that we deliver the safest, highest quality products to you. On average, our herbs must pass 15 tests before reaching you. “Seed to Shelf” Consciousness, promoted by Dr. David Eisenberg of Harvard University, is an approach to tracking herbs and maintaining accountability from the origin as seeds, through planting, maturation, harvesting, processing, and testing, until the herbs are delivered to you. Evergreen Herbs employs the following safety processes and checks to assure safety, quality, and ultimately, clinical efficacy. These processes and commitments are why Evergreen Herbs are good for you and why medical professionals choose Evergreen.”
