Herbal Medicine

When people in the West hear about Chinese medicine, they usually think acupuncture.  In fact, historically, over 60% of the medical literature in China has to do with the application of herbal medicine.

For those of you familiar with Western herbs, you might be surprised to learn that the way Chinese herbal medicine has developed is very different.  Western herbalists usually prescribe single herbs for different ailments (e.g., chamomile to ease an upset stomach). Chinese herbal medicine has developed over the centuries so that single herbs are rarely prescribed.

Over the centuries, Chinese people have “tested” the abundance of plants (and sometimes mineral and animal products) around them so that their effects have been thoroughly researched.  When I asked one of my professors how they did this, he replied, “Chinese people periodically have bad famines–that’s when you start eating strange barks, roots, leaves, even rocks, insects, and strange animals!”

I am personally certain that centuries of “testing” on billions of Chinese people throughout history is equivalent to all the double-blind statistically validated studies you might find in a medical journal.  In fact, if you are looking for these studies, because the scientific paradigm has been so rigorously applied to Chinese medicine in China in the past fifty years, you’ll find them, too.

So, to make a long story short, Chinese people started with single herbs, then took the safe herbs that they knew the effects of, combined them in pairs and noted down the effects of these pairs. Eventually, the study the effects of groups of herbs (formulas) came into being and then these formulas were subjected to testing on billions of Chinese people over the generations.

Traditionally, Chinese people take bags of raw (dried) herbs home and boil them up each day.  If you walk down a street in Chinese, you might smell someone cooking them.  However, this cooking of herbs takes an hour a day, and so we use herbal extracts in the form of granules, or tablets, which are easy to take.

The granules and tablets I use are all of the highest quality, most processed in factories in Taiwan known for their high quality control standards. There, herbs from the mainland are tested to ensure they are authentic and contain no heavy metals.  They are then put into large vats, cooked, and made into granules.

In China, people always say that Chinese herbs work more slowly than Western pharmaceutical drugs, but treat the root of the problem (not just the symptoms).  Surprisingly, sometimes Chinese herbs work quickly.  And if you have a chronic issue, yes, it might take some time for the herbs to get to the root of your condition.  This is true for any healing process, whether it involved a “Western” or “Eastern” method.

Most people find the herbs in granule form to be quite bitter.  Others, like me, don’t mind them and feel they are no worse than a cup of black coffee without sugar and cream. Of course, when taken in tablet form, there is no worry about the taste.

If you haven’t taken Chinese herbs before, it might take a week for your digestive system to get used to taking them. Please let me know if you are having symptoms such as diarrhea or constipation so that I can adjust the formula.

If I prescribe herbs, you’ll usually take two to three doses per day on an empty stomach. The Chinese herbs I prescribe will not interact with Western prescription drugs.

Fibromyalgia/TMJ

"Ron has been treating me for fibromyalgia and severe TMJ. The pain in my face and jaw can often be disabling. My level of pain is significantly reduced after being treatments. Ron is not only compassionate but very good at what he does. I’ve been to other acupuncturists who did not have the expertise that Ron has. He knows where to put the needles, finds the source of pain and treats it quickly and effectively. " - GL

Anxiety/Insomnia

"Ron treated me for anxiety and sleep issues. I would wake up 2-3 times each night and was having anxious dreams. I often felt irritable and this was affecting my relationships.After two weeks of taking herbs, my mood was much better.

Neck Pain

"I had constant neck pain and was unable to move my head back and forth which made it difficult to perform my daily activities such as driving. After being treated by Ron, my neck feels great! This must be how everyone else feels. I had become accustomed to the pain. Getting treated by Ron was a great experience. It’s amazing that it works! Ron makes you feel comfortable. I would recommend Ron to my friends and relatives." - JD

Achilles Tendinitis

"Early in a training program for my first marathon, I developed achilles tendinitis, which made running difficult and raised the possibility that the injury might prevent me from being able to run the race. I started regular treatments with Ron and within a few months, my achilles pain, lower back and knee pain were all gone. With regular treatments from Ron, my achilles pain disappeared and I was able to complete my training schedule, with runs up to 20 miles, without pain, and most importantly I was able to complete my first marathon! I couldn't have done it without him! " - BJ

Acid Reflux

"I have been going to Ron and have had a significant decrease in heartburn." - AS

Acid Reflux

"I’ve had terrible acid reflux disease for over 30 years. It would wake me at least 2-4 nights per month and sometimes leave me sick to my stomach. I have not had a single acid reflux attack in over 4 months since starting acupuncture. I had never gone that long without major symptoms. The acupuncture is not what I expected. It’s very peaceful and not painful. And the results, to me, are amazing. I am completely off all antacids, prescription or OTC, I have no pain, and most surprisingly and unexpectedly, I sleep like a baby! I would unreservedly recommend Ron to my friends and relatives." - LF

Acid Reflux

"Ron treated me for acid reflux, which included severe burning and pain after meals. My restricted diet and other stress led to depression/anxiety as well. After over a year of being treated by a Western doctor, I was on heavy medication and had no hope of stopping, which worried me. After a few weeks of acupuncture and herbs, my symptoms, both the acid reflux and my anxiety, decreased significantly." - MF

Anxiety

"Ron is fantastic. I have recommended him to my friends and sent my husband and parents to him as well. Originally, I went to Ron for stress relief. What I liked about Ron is that he takes a wholistic approach to health. Together, we discussed my diet, exercise routine, sources of stress, etc. and then did acupuncture with associated supplements (vitamins/herbs). The acupuncture helped within a few days and I felt stronger and more calm. My husband noticed the difference and also decided to get a few acupuncture sessions himself." - GR

Anxiety

"Ron is the real deal, a true healer. Over the years, I have seen a variety of acupuncturists and alternative health practitioners, but Ron is by far the best. Not only is he highly skilled in the art of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, he is also easy to talk to and allows you to be an active participant in your own healing. Ron was successful in helping me with my anxiety and my plantar fasciitis. Ron really cares about his patients, is flexible in his approach, and has many words of wisdom to share. I would highly recommend him to anyone." - SM

Athletic Performance

"After being treated by Ron, I experienced an extreme increase in energy levels, increased endurance, and lowered my personal record in the half-marathon by 15 minutes! Ron is very professional, informative, well-informed, and personable.

My mother and wife are both patients." - FA

Back Pain

"I had muscle spasms in my upper back. After being treated by Ron, I am sleeping very well and wake up rested and ready to go. I have freedom of movement in my back without pain. Even the hip pain has subsided. Being treated by Ron is a painless pleasure and I would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to friends." - VC

Back Pain

"I unexpectedly woke up with a sudden experience of intense, immobilizing, and painful spasms in my upper back. It was very debilitating and prevented almost all upper body motion, especially when driving, cooking, lifting, etc. I could not sleep and was unable to help care for my husband who was recovering from knee surgery. The condition did not respond to muscle relaxants, codeine, or therapeutic massage.
After my first treatment by Ron, I felt significant improvement that evening, with much less pain and slightly more mobility. After the second treatment, I was able to turn my head and drive, move freely, sleep comfortably, and had almost no pain. The condition has not returned. As I said to friends, Ron fixed me!
Ron is professional, knowledgeable, and prompt. No long office waits. His manner is friendly and very positive. The treatment itself is very relaxing. I would absolutely recommend Ron to my friends and relatives. I have also returned for treatment of my respiratory condition." - SR

Back Pain

"I had severe lower back pain which was radiating down both my legs and limited my mobility. After only three sessions, I am basically completely pain free. I have my full mobility back and am crying tears of joy because nothing helped me before this. Words are not enough to express my gratitude. The treatments were pain-free and relaxing. Results were immediate and I am back up and running around like before. I would absolutely recommend Ron to my friends and family." - FM

Back Pain

"After my treatment, my hip, knee and low back pain went from a level 7 to a level 1. Thank you for helping reduce the amount of pain I experience and allowing me to enjoy a family cruise with minimum pain and no seasickness at all for the first time in decades. Thanks, Ron." - IB

Back Pain

"Ron treated me for a very painful lower back. I was unable to bend my back to tie my shoes and had a lot of pain sitting down, standing up, and sometimes walking. I was at my wit's end. It was getting worse, not better. My back is much, much better after getting treatment from Ron! I can stand up and sit down without pain, tie my shoes and I walk comfortably. I am so grateful! This is without any steroids, muscle relaxers or anything." - RS

Back Pain

"I was experiencing lower back pain for a few days, not being able to get out of bed easily. After my first acupuncture treatment by Ron, I was able to touch my toes and felt no pain.

Thanks again." - LT

Depression

"I have been going to Ron for anxiety, depression, and heartburn, all of which made it hard for me to focus and made sleeping difficult. I have had a significant decrease in heartburn.

Dryness

"I was feeling very dehydrated and had dry, itchy, burning skin as well as dry eyes, hair, and throat and a near-constant thirst, despite drinking lots of water.

Finally, after seven visits, my throat and level of thirst were normal. I am very pleased. " - SP

" - KR

I have recommend Ron to my friends and relatives." - HB

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

"I was 100% skeptical about acupuncture and remained skeptical throughout the first several weeks of acupuncture even though I was experiencing and feeling positive results.

This is a huge, huge improvement compared to the constant, daily pain that often put my life on hold. " - KW

Neuropathy

"As a diabetic patient in the care of a physician who specializes in diabetes over the past 20 years, I decided to take a leap of faith and try acupuncture to try to relieve the tingling sensation in my toes. This has been bothering me for the past 3 years. Having seen a neurologist and a podiatrist has not helped much. I cannot believe that after two of your acupuncture treatments, the tingling sensation in my toes is completely gone. It's as if I never had it before. Amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" - JF

Pediatric Cough

"My five year-old girl has been coming to Ron for acupuncture for coughing and nasal congestion related to allergies. He is awesome and fantastic with kids! Ron also gave my daughter herbal medicine in liquid form. Her mucus has gone completely back to clear and it is definitely much less copious. She does have to blow her nose a few times a day, but it is nothing like before. She coughs here and there, but much less as well. She is not coughing at night anymore. I've slept in her room with her a few nights, and it seems that the teeth grinding has gone way down as well. So, things are fabulous. Thanks for the wonderful treatment." - CH

Throughout my pregnancy, I felt calm and strong and my weight gain was nonexistent. We had a healthy baby boy and my body did great during the labor and recovered quickly. Thanks Ron for helping us bring our little one into the world!" - GR

Sciatic Pain

"I was treated by Ron for sciatic pain during pregnancy. Almost immediately after the acupuncture session to treat my sciatica, I had relief. I almost couldn't believe it. That night the pain was 90% relieved and for the first time in days I was able to sleep comfortably and the relief lasted several days. I had some back pain a few days later, however after the second treatment my back pain was relieved again and did not return. Ron has been treating me for several months now and I actually look forward to my acupuncture sessions, a surprise for someone who is afraid of needles. I always leave feeling relaxed and my headaches subside, at least for several days, and I have more energy and a better appetite. I have recommended his services to friends already." - AR

You Don't Have to Keep Looking Anymore

"It's hard to know if you've found an acupuncturist who really knows what he/she is doing, and because things don't happen instantly, you don't want to waste your time only to find out several sessions later that you have to look for a new acupuncturist. But with Ron, he's it. You don't have to keep looking. His bedside manner is excellent and he is a very skilled and knowledgeable practitioner." - KW

Ron is One in a Million!

"The experience was very friendly, laid back and quite relaxing. He explained everything at every step and answered any and all questions. He took away any anxiety about the process. His bedside manner is wonderful. It is clear that he is truly passionate about the practice and cares deeply about helping and healing people. I fell asleep at almost every treatment and that says a lot because I am a rather high strung type-A individual.I would recommend Ron in a second. He is one in a million, someone who invested his every fiber into this practice and it shows." - JM

It's Like Hitting the Reset Button
