CUSTOMIZATION OF HERBAL FORMULAS
At Vital Health, we customize herbal formulas for each individual using high quality herbs from our extensive herbal pharmacy of nearly 300 different herbs. Herbal formulas typically contain between 10-15 herbs. During each treatment we reevaluate your symptoms and progress and modify or change your formula as needed. We want the best for our clients and pay more for high quality herbs which have undergone rigorous testing at independent laboratories in the United States for harmful substances such as pesticides, heavy metals, e-coli, salmonella and other microorganisms. Herbs used are produced by a pharmaceutical company that meets and exceeds GMP standards.

Two people with the same biomedical disease may get completely different herbal formulas depending on how the disease is manifesting. Typically, herbal formulas are modified or adjusted weekly according to changes and/or improvement of symptoms. Long-term formulas may be monitored less frequently. 

POWDERED FORM
Typically we prescribe herbs in a concentrated granular (powdered) form which are later mixed with hot water; our clients find that they are very easy to take. In some cases, "raw" herbs which the client decocts or pills may be prescribed.
Children are often prescribed easy to use liquid tinctures. External applications of herbs may also be given depending on your condition. Many conditions improve more rapidly when herbal medicine is used in conjunction with acupuncture. We encourage many of our patients to take herbs when appropriate.
