How is Botanical Medicine Prescribed and Created?
Botanicals (herbs) can be formulated into capsules, tablets, teas, salves, oils, tinctures and more. After a thorough assessment of your complaints and symptoms, I will often recommend an herbal remedy of some form.
One of my favourite ways to deliver herbs is through the formulation of a custom tincture. Herbal tinctures are alcohol based extracts of specific herbs.
Because we carry a large range of single herb tinctures, I can pick and choose which herbs I think would be most beneficial to you and your concerns, and combine them together.
This ability to create a custom blend of botanicals is one of the most rewarding parts of my job, as it encompasses true individualization of health care.
This means that regardless of the issues you’re dealing with, individual treatment is always an important element.
