Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is the use of plants and minerals to treat disease and enhance wellbeing.

Alongside acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine uses herbal therapy for the treatment of illness and for the optimization of health and longevity.

Chinese herbal formulas are safe, powerful medicines that can address many of today’s ailments. The formulas are individually prescribed for the patient’s unique constitution and ailment. They use only natural, non-synthetic medicinal plants, animals and minerals, which have been studied by the Chinese for thousands of years.

Disorders that may be treated include:

  • Digestive problems
  • Eczema and psoriasis
  • Fatigue
  • Gynecological disorders
  • Stress
  • Allergies
  • Colds/flu
  • Inflammation

Herbal formulas can be packaged as powders, pastes, lotions, tablets or teas. Soraya will prescribe the herbal formula most suited to your needs.
Herbs can act on the body as powerfully as pharmaceutical drugs and need to be treated with care. Please inform Soraya of all medications you are currently taking, before she prescribes herbal formulas.

Longevity Tonics

The concepts of what a tonic herb is differs in each of the major healing modalities. The Eastern systems of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine make use of adaptogens like ginseng to promote a long and healthy life. Herbs that are adaptogens are noted for their effects on slowing the effects of aging by helping decrease the bodies reaction to stress. Chaga and the similar Reishi mushroom both have a reputation as tonics for longevity and health which are born out by recent scientific studies.

Western herbalists place more emphasis on antioxidants, nutrition and detoxification for anti-aging therapy. Both Eastern and Western nutritionists agree that herbs and superfoods that support the heart and improve circulation are vital to a long life. Ginger, Ginkgo, Goji Berries and Hawthorn are a few examples.

Soraya can prescribe and create longevity formulas for your health and wellbeing.
