Before I Prescribe Herbal Medicines To You

Before I Prescribe Herbal Medicines To You

I’m a herbalist. I’ve been formulating and dispensing herbal medicine for over 25 years in the form of herbal teas and tonics. Herbal medicine is the study of botany and the use of medicinal plants. Plants have been the basis for medical treatments through much of human history. Herbal tonics from my apothecary are for practitioner dispensing only and for patients who I’ve seen. Why? They are powerful medicine and I need to consider multiple things before I formulate and prescribe them to you.
