A TIME HONORED PRACTICE
With an ultimate goal of assisting the body in its innate ability to overcome disease and illness, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) takes a holistic view and focuses on restoring balance rather than treating particular diseases or conditions. Chinese herbal medicine excels in treating conditions which are resistant to Western therapies or unrecognized as illnesses. TCM is safe and effective when prescribed by a qualified herbalist and can be used by children and the elderly.
We benefit from thousands of years of a scholarly tradition of Chinese medical diagnosis. The writing of traditional Chinese herbal “scripts” (prescriptions), require extensive training and is the most revered & challenging branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is also one of the most individualized treatment strategies in the history of medicine.
PERSONALIZED PRESCRIPTIONS FOR HEALING
Effective prescriptions for complex cases requires a detailed differential diagnosis that combines an understanding of the patient’s condition, their constitution (health tendencies), and a sincere understanding of the individual’s case history. Then, the practitioner must understand the details about hundreds of single herbs, many formulas, and how to combine them for the individual unique needs.
Dr. Kandel and his colleague, Dr. Aiken, have studied with renowned veteran doctors & scholars of Chinese Medicine and have extensive experience in writing tailored herbal scripts. They focus on both short term acute conditions & long term chronic conditions and enjoy collaborating together to diagnose & prescribe personalized formulas that work for you.
I was honored to study with some of the most revered doctors in China as the first American at the central research hospital in Beijing in 1985, and now feel lucky to collaborate with the amazing Cathryn Aiken.
