About Herbology


Utilizing Chinese herbs for health and wellbeing is an art and science that has been cultivated and improved upon for more than two thousand years. At both of my offices, my colleagues and I are working hard to continue this time honored tradition and are thus able to offer our patients the finest and most precise herbal formulations available.

When creating an herbal formula many factors are weighed and considered in order to arrive at the correct and most clinically effective combination of herbs. This includes performing a complete medical history using the extensive diagnostic techniques pertinent to Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as western diagnostic tools such as blood studies, urine and stool analysis, microbiologic and immunodiagnostic studies, x-ray and MRI's, as well as many others. By carefully analyzing all of this information and using the unique acupoint diagnostic technique developed over the past 25 years at the offices of M. M. Van Benschoten, I am able to develop a formula that addresses every aspect of a particular patient's needs.
