Chinese herbal practitioner

The Chinese herbal practitioner will, based on the diagnosis, compose a formula of Chinese herbs specially selected to your personal health condition. This Chinese herbal formula is prepared for you in our pharmacy and from these raw herbs a decoction should be made. At your first consultation the doctor will explain the preparation of the herbs to you and give a leaflet.

Chinese herbs also exist in the form of tablets or granules. Sometimes the doctor will prescribe herbs in this form, depending on the severity of the disease and preference of the patient. In general mostly raw herbs will be prescribed, since they are more individually aimed.
