Our clinic has a dispensary of botanical, homeopathic, and nutritional formulas that will only be prescribed and dispensed if they are necessary for your care. In acute conditions, more frequent doses are commonly prescribed; for example, every hour or two for an infection. In longstanding conditions we may prescribe the medicine to be taken only once or twice daily or once a week. Our clinic utilizes both Chinese and Western botanical medicines because they can often be an excellent alternative to pharmaceutical therapy. The word ‘drug’ comes from the trading word ‘droog’ which meant ‘dried herb’. At the beginning of the 20th century, the modern pharmaceutical giant Eli-Lilly produced Dandelion extracts for doctors. Botanical medicine comes in tablets, capsules, tincture extracts, and teas. We utilize the best that modern science has to offer combined with the long traditions of herbal medicine.
Large dosages of synthetic vitamins are not well absorbed and typically just eliminated by the body as waste.
What is the difference between Whole Food nutrition and synthetic?
A great example to explain this question is Vitamin E. Synthetic Vitamin E contains one type of ‘tocopherol'. However, Vitamin E foods in nature contain several ‘tocopherols’ in certain proportions, each providing a different biological effect. As a result, science observes healthier hearts in individuals who have high levels of Vitamin E in the bloodstream, but no health benefits for those who take common synthetic Vitamin E tablets. For these reasons, our clinic utilizes whole food nutritional concentrates that supply the naturally occurring forms of vitamins in their entire form.
Homeopathy is the use of highly diluted medicinal substances that promote a healing response in the body. This method was developed in Germany by Dr. Samuel Hanhemann over 200 years ago and is used widely all over the world as primary care medicine.
Based upon the understanding that ‘like cures like’, small doses of a substance are given which, in turn, stimulate a healing reaction in the body. Homeopathic Drainage Therapy is a special application of homeopathic medicines. The goal of the drainage formulas is to drain wastes from specific cells, organs, or fluids of the body that impair normal function. By eliminating these wastes, the cell, organ, or tissue can then function more healthfully.
