     Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine, refers to the use of a plant's seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Long practiced outside of conventional medicine, herbalism is becoming more mainstream as improvements in analysis and quality control along with advances in clinical research show their value in the treatment and prevention of disease. Nearly one-third of Americans use herbs, and it is estimated that in 1998 alone $4 billion was spent on herbal products in this country.

     In my practice I use herbal medicine primarily for treatment of internal and systemic diseases such as indigestion, stomach and duodenal ulcers, eczema, liver disorders, premenstrual syndrome,menstrual irregularities, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome and other dissorders. For detailed list of body systems and treated conditions review hyperlinks on the left. 

     Proper nutrition is a crucial component of any successful healing process. Therefore  medical nutrition guidance accompany all treatment recommendations.

     Thorough medical history and current use of medication, herbal and nutrition supplements is part of initial consultation to  avoid interactions with prescription medications.
