Chinese Herbal Medicine
Here at Basin Natural Medicine we provide unique standardized over-the-counter formulas as well as highly effective, authentic to your specific need, custom formulations. This unique addition to the use of herbs is what Traditional Chinese medicine is all about.
When we put together an individual formula for your own unique health issue it becomes an individualized experience. When the formula is created you are in the practitioners mind and the formula is a unique, one of a kind medicine specific to you . In this way the medicine that we provide becomes your own prescription.
This therapeutic use of plants is one of the oldest forms of health care in the world. Different herbs have been effectively used for a wide range of medicinal purposes for thousands of years, including; pain relief, hormone balancing, sleep enhancement, improved digestion, skin soothing, stress relief and parasitic and bacterial infection to name just a few.
When we prescribe an herbal formula we do so with your specific needs in mind. With this knowledge we can formulate specific herbal formulas that have the power to drive your body toward more optimal health. Chinese herbal medicine is unique in this way in that it has the power to reset the bodies own healing power and attack any and all root causes of disease. With this in mind it is the power of the individual herbs in unison with their fellow formula constituents that create a synergy that is more powerful than just each individual herb within the formula. This is what makes Chinese Herbal medicine the powerful medicine that it is.
There are also patent, or over-the-counter, herbal formulas as well. We prescribe these already made, standard formulations when we feel that you do not need a more specific formula for your health requirements. This is when you can come into the office at any time and renew your patent formula. In this way you have the power to continue to support your bodies needs as you like.
On occasion we also prescribe supplements for you. These supplements are of the food quality that delivers their nutrients in an already very bio-available form so that you can utilize them more effectively. This type of supplement usually can not be purchased in the local supermarkets but must be carried by professional providers. This type of higher quality supplement usually costs a bit more than the local supermarkets charge for the lesser bio-available forms. It is to your advantage to purchase a more bio-available form of supplement so you can reap the benefits and not throw away your hard earned dollars on a lesser effective supplement.
