Botanical (herbal) Medicine and Supplement Prescriptions

Botanical medicine, also known as herbal medicine, has been used since the beginning of civilization. It is the basis for modern pharmacology. This is to say that plants are used worldwide for their healing properties, and nutritional values. Some of these healing properties include having:

  • Anti-cancer,
  • Antidepressant,
  • Anti-anxiety,
  • Antibacterial,
  • Antiviral,
  • Antifungal,
  • Sedative,
  • Hormone balancing,
  • Immune system boosting,
  • Cholesterol/blood pressure/ blood sugar lowering,
  • Liver cleansing,
  • Digestion improving and
  • Laxative effects.

I will make customized formulations specific to your health concerns. As a part of a thorough intake (NDMEDIC_INTAKE FORM), I will ask you about your current medical conditions, currently used medications/supplements, and allergies to medications. Subsequently, I will also ask about your family medical history and prior hospitalization. The goal is to ensure that your pharmaceutical and botanical medications are working synergistically together. Botanical (herbal) medicines come in many forms, including:

  • Capsules
  • Pills
  • Tablets
  • Tinctures (a concentrated, liquid form of botanical medicine used in small amounts)
  • Salves,
  • and Creams.

We will discuss to see which form is best for you. After around 3-6 weeks, you will start seeing benefits from your botanical prescription. After we establish results, we will reduce the dosage to a lower maintenance dose. Our eventual goal is the complete removal of the medication.
