You can schedule an herbal consultation in person or via Telehealth. Your herbalist will conduct a thorough intake of your overall health, asking questions about your sleep, digestion, emotional state and overall symptoms. Then they will observe your voice, the brightness in your eyes, your odor, fingernails, hair, posture, gait and skin which all give valuable clues about your state of health. Finally, your herbalist will look at your tongue and feel your pulse, the major diagnostic tools of Chinese medicine. After getting a complete picture of your health, they will recommend herbal formulas individualized for your body. As your condition changes and improves with treatment, the Chinese herbal treatment is also adjusted and modified until the desired health outcome is achieved. There will be herbal check-ins every few week to track your progress and modify your formula.
Alchemy carries herbs in many forms so you can choose what is suitable for your lifestyle – tinctures, pills, or raw herbs.
