Herbal Medicine

What is herbal medicine?

Herbal medicine refers to products made from plants that are used for medicinal purposes. Because it is natural medicine without side effects, herbal medicine has been in use for thousands of years. We typically prescribe herbs in pill or powder form, but also prescribe topicals for muscle aches and pain.

Here’s a short list of what we use herbal medicine to treat:

  • Colds/Flus
  • Headaches
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Generalized Pain
  • Infertility
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Inflammation

Is herbal medicine safe?

Herbal medicine is extremely safe, but it is not regulated by the FDA. Since it’s sold as a dietary supplement, it’s critical that you work with a certified herbal medicine practitioner who understands which herbs and formulations work best for your condition and how they may complement or interfere with any conventional medications you’re taking.

All the herbs that the practitioners at GenerateShen Wellness carry, provide, and prescribe are sourced from trusted companies.

What are the advantages of herbal medicine over conventional drugs?

In addition to herbal medicine’s ability to work in conjunction with your body’s natural healing processes, other advantages include affordability and minimal or no side effects.
