Medicines grow all around us, in the cracks of sidewalks, in vacant lots, in community gardens, climbing up the walls of apartment buildings?
Like acupuncture, herbs enter the body's energy channels and help keep the qi, or energy, of the body flowing smoothly. They can help strengthen the body's qi, blood and essence, and they can help drain and release disease-causing factors inside the body.
Through Herbal and Nutrition Consultations, Third Root combines the best practices of traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine and Western Herbal Medicine to address the health concerns of our community.
Chinese herbal medicine developed thousands of years ago. In this tradition, herbs are prescribed in combinations. Instead of taking one herb for your condition, you'll receive a formula, made up of usually about 6-10 different plants. Many of the formulas we'll give you are the same prescriptions that have been used for thousands of years, and they've been proven both safe and effective.
And in addition to selling locally-harvested herbs, we also teach about the plants growing in our very neighborhood that can benefit your health!
