About Herbology


Using Chinese herbs for health and wellbeing is an art and science that has been cultivated and improved upon for more than two thousand years.

When creating an herbal formula, many factors are weighed and considered to arrive at the most beneficial and clinically effective formula. This includes performing a complete medical history using the comprehensive diagnostic techniques of TCM as well as Western diagnostic tools such as blood tests, urine and stool analyses, microbiologic and immunodiagnostic assays, and many others.

My final step is to apply the Acupoint Diagnostic Technique developed by Dr. Matt Van Benschoten to pull all of this information together which makes the final formula the most specific and therapeutic as possible.
