Herbal Medicine
Chinese Herbal Medicine has been evolving for thousands of years. As a result the high level of effectiveness is achieved through differentiation and diagnosis of the symptoms that present.ย  From this diagnosis, the symptomatic pattern is prescribed a unique formulation of herbs. Incorporating the functions required to address the change required. Only can optimal effects of herbal medicine be applied if there is a clear understanding of the disorder being addressed.


Herbal formulations prescribed by Jacob can come in several formats but varying on the condition you may be required to do some preparation of your own. Formulas can come in bulk raw (dried) in which you would boil your prescription with water for a certain amount of time, in which this will be your medicinal decoction. Powdered herbs are a more convenient.ย  These are raw herbs ground into fine powder that is mixed with hot water and then taken. Other options are granulated herbs, pills, capsules, tinctures and plasters (for injuries and pain).


Herbal Medicine can be effective for many conditions. Some can include digestion issues, gynaecological disorders, menstrual irregularities, stress management, dietary support, musculoskeletal pain, skin disorders, colds and influenza infections, respiratory difficulties, sleeping disturbances and fatigue syndromes.
