Chinese Herbal Medicines Questions

Can I buy the Chinese herbal medicine dispensed at Meridian Healing Centre over the counter?

No, the Chinese herbal medicine formulas dispensed by Dr Kirk Wilson at Meridian Healing Centre are customised and tailored to treat the specific condition as presented in you at that specific moment in time. Chinese herbal medicine is a very effective and powerful modality of health care. But is does require treatments which are highly customised. Variations in Chinese herbal medicine formulas are in terms of the individual Chinese herbs selected, the combinations and interactions of these herbs, and the dosages of the respective herbs.

In the past, some patients at Meridian Healing Centre have been tempted to buy Chinese Medicine pills and tablets which are available for purchase over the counter. Kirk does not recommend his herbal patients use these treatments. At best, these pills and tablets have questionable standards of efficacy. The potency of these Chinese herbal pills and tablets are not as strong as the Chinese herbal granules which are dispensed at Meridian Healing Centre.

Additionally, Chinese herbal pills and tablets which can be bought over the counter are based on traditional or classic Chinese herbal medicine formulas. This means they cannot be customised nor tailored to treat the specific imbalance as presented in each patient. Due to the complexity of Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis, it is very unlikely your imbalance will have an exact matching classical formula. This renders Chinese herbal pills and tablets to be robust and ineffective.

Do not waste your time trying to improve your health using ineffective methods. Seek professional specialist advice and treatment from Dr Kirk Wilson at Meridian Healing Centre.
