Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the oldest and greatest herbal systems in the world. Together with Ayurvedic (Indian) herbal medicine, it forms the longest unbroken clinically researched and applied herbal medical science in the world.

 Many people in the West do not realize that Chinese herbal medicine is the true "backbone" of Chinese, or Oriental, medicine, with acupuncture and other therapies traditionally viewed as secondary. While most people seek out acupuncture as a primary therapy for pain and illness in the West, quite the opposite is true in the East. Chinese herbs are in fact the "Internal Medicine" of Chinese medicine--herbs are the first line of treatment used for signs of internal imbalance or illness.

 At Cultivate, we use modern, easy to use Herbal Formulations that are pesticide and additive free so that you can feel safe taking an herbal supplement prescribed by a qualified Doctor of Chinese Medicine. Adding an herbal remedy to your treatment plan will expedite the process of regaining balance within the body. Formulas are taken orally in the form of teas, concentrated tinctures, or tablets.

For the Sensitive Digestion System…

Balance for an American Diet

Digestive Harmony

Most Traditional Chinese medical doctors believe digestion conditions have two elements: the overindulgence in food and drink or an underlying deficiency in the primary organs of digestion, the spleen and stomach. According to Chinese medical theory, the first cause is generally the most important for adults. When we eat rich and hard-to-digest foods, when we skip meals (or try to get by on a snack) and then overeat at the next one, we are all in danger of getting a bout of indigestion. Too often, we let busy schedules take precedence over regular meal times. At other times, we may get ourselves in trouble by failing to understand what foods can be hard on our stomachs.

In general, raw and uncooked foods, particularly certain fruits and vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli, onions, etc. require more effort to digest and may challenge a delicate digestion system. That means that foods we often consider “healthy” can in some situations upset our stomachs.

Digestive Harmony has proved to be our most popular formula, both from the perspectives of effectiveness and taste.  The formula is composed of 8 amazing herbs, with an orange-chai flavor combination that is a crowd favorite. We recommend this formula for both short term digestive situations, along with another nourishing formula for longer-term digestive health.  Dispensed in a yummy Orange Chai flavor in easy to use single effervescent packets that can be added to room temperature or hot water.

  • For those seeking a timeless herbal solution for digestive health.

  • For those who requiring something to make them feel settled after a meal.

  • It’s great for after over-indulging (i.e. eating too much).

  • Some people use it to prevent hangovers.
