Herbal Medicine Q&A

What is herbal medicine?

Herbal medicine is a traditional Chinese treatment strategy for a variety of physical and psychological conditions. Practitioners have been using Chinese herbs for centuries to manage existing health issues and prevent new ones from developing.

Herbs come from different parts of plants that have therapeutic properties. They are available in many forms, including tablets, powders, extracts, and dried plant material brewed into tea. You can also use herb-infused creams and lotions you apply directly to your skin.

Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness offers a range of herbal medicines to support your overall health, including:

  • Ginger
  • Gingko
  • Ginseng
  • Echinacea
  • Chamomile
  • Goldenseal
  • Saint John’s wort

Your provider can also prescribe Chinese herbs to treat specific medical conditions, including autoimmune disease, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and hormone imbalances.

When should I consider Chinese herbal medicine?

You might be a candidate for the Chinese herbal medicine services available at Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness if you’re looking to reduce your reliance on medications to relieve pain, inflammation, or other symptoms that lower your quality of life.

You may also benefit from herbal medicine if traditional therapies aren’t working well to control symptoms of acute or chronic health issues.

Your board-certified and licensed doctor of Chinese medicine meets with you by phone or during an online video conference using Zoom. They review your medical history and complete a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) evaluation to assess your needs.

What can I expect during treatment with herbal medicine?

After the assessment, your Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness provider can prescribe the Chinese herbs that meet your needs. They customize a prescription for Chinese herbal medicine and call it into an herbal pharmacy they work with.

Your provider ensures you know how to use herbal medicines correctly to support your health. They may also recommend other treatment strategies like acupuncture, lifestyle adjustments, and nutrition and dietary changes, and offer vitamin and mineral supplements delivered right to your door through Wellevate® online pharmacy.

You can discuss any questions or concerns you have about your use of herbal medicines with your provider. They continue to monitor your progress with the treatment and can adjust it when necessary.
