Traditional Chinese Medicine
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is a complete medical science with a 3000-year-old history.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the most sophisticated clinical systems to treat a multitude of diseases and illnesses. To date, there are roughly 3000 Chinese herbs categorized and about 300 of these herbs are commonly used. Unlike what most people may think, herbs entail much more than just plants, they also encompass minerals and animal extracts.
Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GENERIC HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS AND HERBS?
Only a licensed practitioner can prescribe Chinese herbs based on a pattern and diagnosis of the individual. In contrast, a person buying generic herbal supplements from the pharmacy won’t have the same tailored experience and results. Hence, at Honor Wellness, we offer customized herbal formulations for all of our patients.
HOW ARE HERBS ANY DIFFERENT FROM PRESCRIBED MEDICINE?
In modern medicine, doctors prescribe medications to be taken indefinitely as ‘one drug for one symptom’. In contrast, Chinese herbs focus on the underlying malfunction to resolve the symptoms and the root cause. Additionally, each herb formulation can consist of up to 15 herbs mixed together.
DOES INSURANCE COVER HERBS?
Insurance does not cover herb treatment.
HOW DO IT TAKE MY HERBS?
Previously, doctors prescribed Chinese herbs in their raw form and the patient was instructed to cook the herbs at home, which can be quite messy and time-consuming. At Honor Wellness, we prescribe herbs in granule form that can be conveniently taken by mixing the powder with warm water. Although the taste is not always enjoyable, the effects are tried and true.
HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS FROM HERBAL TREATMENT?
Depending on the condition treated it may take a minimum of a week for you to observe effects. Your practitioner will be able to discuss the time length required for your herbal prescription during your visit.
