Herbal Therapy

Herbal Medicine is a medical system of using plants, minerals, and mushrooms. Herbal Medicine has been used in many cultures for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of health concerns and assist in bodily functions. Herbal remedies are taken in the form of liquid extracts, capsules, tablets, and teas.

Food Therapy

Food is the body's fuel. What you eat can play a major role in your physical, mental, and emotional health. Many times food by itself can be a cure for many different ailments. Your Acupuncture Physician will help put together a customized food plan just for you. Every individual is at a different place in their health.  What may be great for one person to eat might not be as healthy for someone else. An Acupuncture Physician can assist you in choosing the right foods for you!
