Chinese Herbal Medicine
We at Circle of Living are certified in prescribing herbal medicine.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is prescribed as a formula containing 5 – 15 different types of herbs to address specific symptom and signs. Traditionally Chinese herbs were only available in dried form and had to be simmered for hours to activate their medicinal ingredients. Modern advances have lead to natural methods of extracting the active ingredients. Herbs can now be prescribed in pills, tinctures and freeze dried granules. These are prepared according to strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and subject to high levels of quality control.
At the Circle of Living our commitment to the environment ensures that we do not use any medicinal substance derived from an endangered species nor one that involves inflicting pain on a living being.
