Herbal Medicine in Albuquerque
The Doctors of Oriental Medicine at Acupuncture Associates of America are committed to the wellness and overall health of our Albuquerque-area clients. We provide treatments that correct specific problems as well as more generalized therapies aimed at boosting wellbeing.
This holistic approach draws heavily from the ancient practices of Chinese herbal medicine – a technique that has been practiced for thousands of years and continues to be useful today.
What is Herbal Medicine?
All medicine has its roots in herbal medicine. Before modern techniques were invented, ancient peoples – including those in China – used natural ingredients to treat people’s ailments. Many of these treatments were highly effective, and some even came to become mainstream medications as scientists synthesized their active ingredients.
Today, people are more concerned with the potential dangers of pharmaceuticals, including drug interactions and side effects. Natural treatments like herbalism tend to be safer and offer gentler effects. By nourishing your body with essential nutrients and providing the inherent medicinal value of their chemical composition, the natural ingredients in Chinese herbal medicine promote wellness and healing.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and More
At Acupuncture Associates, we provide supplement consultations to help you understand the value of herbal medicine and show you how to implement it in your life. We can help you choose the right supplements to suit your needs. In our experience, herbal medicine is most effective when it serves as a complementary therapy to acupuncture, boosting acupuncture’s ability to restore a body’s balance and wellness.
