My MissionMy mission at E. Shan Tang Herbs is to help people understand, in the tradition of Chinese medicine, the underlying reasons behind their physical conditions. Once the reason or reasons have been identified, (for example, reason behind a backache may be a weak kidney) I can prescribe an herbal tea formula to be cooked and used twice a day for a certain number of days or weeks. Or I can prescribe a patent medicine (herbs in pill form) which is available on this website. I can also suggest changes and / or additions to one's diet and daily habits.
At my store in Allston, MA, I talk to customers about their problems and then do pulse diagnosis, which can tell me where their body is weak. However pulse diagnosis is not necessary for the most part. I only need to know one's symptoms, age, sex, diet and general lifestyle (i. e., stress, no stress, etc.) to understand where the problem may lie.
Chinese medicine is known to be all natural with no side effects. I am happy to work with my customers to find the best treatment not just for their symptoms, but for the cause of their ailments. It is very important to take these medicines, no matter how difficult or time consuming it may be, with a positive attitude and a bright outlook to one's future.
There may be precautions to take in combining an herbal regimen with any western prescriptions you are taking. Generally, taking herbal and western medicines at least one hour apart is the rule. But if you have any questions about this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer as soon as possible.
