Elizabeth Peterson Gross, LAc, ACN is licensed by the Texas Medical Board, and trained in Eastern and Western Pharmacology. She can work with your Physician to see if Chinese Herbs are appropriate to incorporate into your treatment plan. Chinese Herbs are highly effective for treating many conditions. Herbs should only be prescribed by qualified medical professionals, due to potential interactions with Western pharmaceuticals.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is over 5,000 years old, and one of the
oldest known forms of health care. It represents the experience
and time-tested theories that come from thousands of years of
practice by Traditional Chinese Medicine physicians.
According to the World Health Organization,
"Traditional medicine can treat various infectious and
chronic conditions: new antimalarial drugs were developed
from the discovery and isolation of artemisinin from Artemisia
annua L., a plant used in China for over 2,000 years."
