Herbology & Nutrition

HERBOLOGY

Herbology is a traditional medicinal practice based on the use of plants and plant extracts. Herbology is also known as phytotherapy, botanical medicine, medical herbalism, herbal medicine. Since the dawn of creation, people in all continents have long used hundreds of indigenous plants for treatment of various ailments dating back to prehistory. Many plants synthesize substances that are useful to the maintenance of health in humans and other animals.

Unlike western medications, the balance and interaction of all the ingredients are considered more important than the effect of individual ingredients. Even though pharmaceuticals are more effective in emergency situations where time is of the essence, over the long term herbs can help the patient resist disease, and provide nutritional and immunological support that pharmaceuticals lack. As a result, herbology offers both prevention as well as cure.

The first Chinese herbal book, the Shennong Bencao Jing, compiled during the Han Dynasty but dating back to a much earlier date, possibly 2700 B.C., lists 365 medicinal plants and their uses - including ma-Huang, the shrub that introduced the drug ephedrine to modern medicine.

For over 5,000 years, the Chinese have developed unique and efficacious herbal formulas to treat illness and promote health. Our clinic utilizes ProBotanixxTM line of herbal formulas that have stood the test of time that result from vast documentation on herbal medicine, current scientific research, and pharmaceutical technology.
