Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine in Columbia
The caregivers at Palmetto Acupuncture and Holistic Health Clinic use age-old herbal medicine techniques to treat a variety of ailments in patients of all ages. People from all over Columbia rely on our expert knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine as a complement to other treatments or as a stand-alone therapy. Chinese medicine is derived from plant, mineral and animal sources, with many having been used for over 3,000 years. Side effects of such treatment are generally minimal, which makes this method desirable for many individuals. Substances are administered in the form of teas, extracts, tablets, granules, lotions, poultices and more, though they are rarely prescribed alone and often have the greatest effect when skillfully used in combination.
Formulas & Custom Blends
In traditional Chinese medicine, formulas are often made up of as many as 20 different herbs. Each blend is specially designed for the individual and his or her health conditions and needs. The contents of the formulation are carefully chosen for their particular effect, and we recommend and use only the highest potency and quality products that have been certified as having Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). This endorsement confirms that a set of hygienic guidelines even more stringent than those in place in the United States has been adhered to in the manufacturing of the herbal ingredients and supplements.
