Chinese Herbs and Dietary Therapy

Chinese Herbs


Chinese Herbal Medicine is a sophisticated and effective form of therapy that has been used for thousands of years. Chinese herbal formulas work not simply through chemical interactions, but also through subtle resonance with the person taking them. Herbs that strengthen and balance one another’s effects are combined into a single formula that addresses multiple symptoms. An herbal formula very often alleviates seemingly disconnected issues such as headaches, poor digestion, and depression.

Based on a thorough and individualized diagnostic evaluation of each patient and relying on a deep understanding of the classical Chinese herbal formulas and the herbs themselves, EvenTide practitioners create formulas to address patients’ constitutions, root imbalances, and manifesting symptoms. Formulas may be provided in the form of teas, capsules, tinctures, topical plasters or soaks.

Chinese Herbal Medicine must be used appropriately under the supervision of a trained practitioner. EvenTide works only with reputable and trustworthy pharmacies and distributors to ensure the quality, safety, and effectiveness of herbs.

Dietary Therapy

For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has taught that a healthy, individualized, and seasonal diet is an integral part of maintaining good health. In Classical Chinese Medicine, individualized dietary therapy frequently is used in conjunction with Chinese herbal medicine to ensure that patients are incorporating into their diet foods that are appropriate to their constitution and digestive capacity.
