Chinese herbal medicine is based on a practice over 3000 years old and utilizes over 400 different plant, mineral and animal sources. Multi-herb formulas are selected and prescribed for each individual patient based on their presenting pattern that is diagnosed in clinic during each visit. At Altitude Acupuncture, formulas are prescribed in pill form.

This company was chosen as our primary line of herbal formulas because they are free of soy, wheat, dairy, corn, yeast and animal products. This is extremely important for many Altitude Acupuncture patients to keep them protected from allergen outbreaks.
