Herb Resources for BAP Patients
We have created a limited online apothecary for you to access some common formulas and topical products through our suppler, Acu-Market. Please click on the links below for a few of our favorite formulas many of you have been taking for years, plus at-home acupressure tools to accompany your telehealth sessions.
Chinese Herb Formulas and Brands
In Chinese herbal medicine we use "formulas". These are recipes which include multiple herbs that work synergistically. These recipes or formulas can be centuries old and many brands make the same formula, sometimes modifying them with additional herbs. The companies we recommend employ rigorous quality testing and demonstrate transparency in their sourcing practices and testing procedures. We don't recommend any herbs we wouldn't take ourselves or give to our families!
What's the difference between tablets/teapills and tinctures?
It's mostly just a matter of preference. Some people prefer the ease of tinctures while others are used to swallowing tablets or teapills. Some people choose based on price. Some have found they respond more quickly to one more than the other.
Don't see your formula here?
We have made the most common and safest formulas available here. These are formulas we feel confident offering without a consultation and that have no contraindications. However, there are still subtleties, so read the description of each to make sure it's the right one for you and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about a formula. If you don't see your formula here you can either wait to book a telehealth or in-person acupuncture session or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If it's an easy refill we will send you an online prescription form. Thank you for your patience!
Herbal formulas have been safely used for centuries for symptoms but are not a "cure all" or a replacement for primary care from your doctor.
