About Herbal Medicines
- You must treat herbal preparations with respect; although doses of active ingredients are lower than in pharmaceutical preparations, herbs can still have adverse effects and are not necessarily safer.
- It is important that you comply with the recommended dosage. * Inform us of ALL medicines and supplements you are taking, including over-the-counter medicines. Without this information, we cannot adequately treat you and you may be at risk for interactions.
- Bring all the bottles of drugs, herbs, supplements and vitamins to your visit, to provide us with an accurate picture of doses and what plants are included in combination herbal products.
- Most herbal preparations take time to reach their full potential; you may not see a change for two-three months. Please be patient and continue any given treatment for the time recommended.
- Lifestyle issues are important in holistic healing. It seems counterproductive to spend money on many supplements each week if you also continue to smoke, drink heavily, make poor food choices and forgo exercise.
We can be much more efficient during your visit if we have all pertinent medical information about you.
Please bring along to your visit the completed Patient Health Information Form or Health Update Form. (Links to the forms can be found in the top left box.)
Other items to bring:
- Results of recent blood tests
- Results of medical tests such as DEXA scans (bone mineral density)
- All herbs and supplements you take

PLEASE BRING THE BOTTLES WHEN YOU COME FOR YOUR VISIT!!!!
