Just like the food we eat and the pharmaceuticals and supplements we take, herbal therapy affects change in the body from the inside out.
It is an effective holistic treatment for many conditions including acne, eczema, psoriasis, allergies, women’s health disorders, and chronic pain.
What results can I expect from herbal therapy?
By incorporating herbal therapy into your treatment plan, you may experience improvements more quickly than with acupuncture alone. In chronic or severe cases, herbal therapy may be essential to a successful treatment plan, and in some cases, it may be effective on its own.
My approach to herbal therapy
My approach to herbal therapy consists of carefully formulated groups of herbs. The ingredients work synergistically, often having a stronger effect in pairs or groups than as a single-herb treatment or isolated component, as with many pharmaceuticals.
I craft a formula for your individual needs and modify the ingredients as you respond and symptoms improve. Like acupuncture, herbal therapy addresses the root cause as well as the uncomfortable symptoms, with few or no side effects.
Quality herbs & ingredients
All of the herbal products and ingredients I prescribe have been repeatedly lab-tested for molds, heavy metals, and pesticides throughout the stages of processing and packaging. Safety, purity, ethical harvest, and sustainable industry standards are of utmost importance.
“Betsy is a very compassionate provider and immediately made me feel at ease. Things really turned a corner for me when we started incorporating Chinese herbs into my treatment plan.”
“I started seeing Betsy out of desperation - I've had a cluster of digestive, immune system and skin issues for 2 or 3 years now (including stubborn, frustrating, embarrassing scalp psoriasis). After two months of treatment, these issues are probably 90 to 95% resolved. Using Betsy's assessment of my constitution from a TCM point of view I changed my diet, and followed her prescribed acupuncture and herbal medicine regimen. She's a very talented doctor who treats the entire body and root causes.”
