Ginger As Food and Medicine

Herbal medicines work differently from many drug therapies. Herbs prescribed by a practitioner of East Asian Medicine can be thought of as strong foods. These strong foods will support the body in restoring the dynamic balance we call health. A well thought-out herbal prescription from an experienced herbalist will not only address a patient’s primary health complaints, but will also have a beneficial effect on the entire body. Rather than just treating a disease, East Asian herbal medicine supports the whole person.

There are many patterns or reasons why disease develops. East Asian Medicine cures underlying patterns which cause symptoms. The purpose of food and herb recommendations is to treat the patterns leading to imbalance or dis-ease.


Herbal Therapy is extremely safe and effective, and may be combined with acupuncture to potentiate its benefits.
