The appropriate herbal supplements are prescribed in conjunction with a visit to an Integrative Medicine physician. Conditions that can be treated with herbal supplements include:

  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Menstrual issues

Herb and Supplement Counseling - our providers goal is to identify specific supplements or herbals that can help manage medical conditions:

  • when patients can't tolerate or haven't been treated successfully with prescription therapies
  • when patients want to use herbs and supplements as a means to improve or maintain wellness
  • when patients need to look at what is most effective - sometimes paring down the number of supplements they are currently taking.
