Herbal Remedies and Supplements – Benefits
At weMED, we base our knowledge of more than 10,000 Herbal Remedies and 30,000 Supplements on a firm understanding of traditional Chinese medicine, individualized diagnostic testing, and each client’s unique constitution. Dosages are designed to work harmoniously with your body and without the harsh chemical extracts of most pharmaceuticals. At weMED, we carefully balance the herbal remedies and supplements to avoid side-effects.
Best of all, Herbal Remedies and Supplements extend your in-office treatment throughout every day of the week, even on days when weMED is not open. Whatever condition a client receives treatment for, herbal remedies and supplements address the ailment as often and regularly as possible to ensure the best results.
There have been concerns regarding the quality of Chinese herbal products, mainly relating to pollution, pesticides, and heavy metals. Traditional Chinese herbs work best in their natural states, such as raw tree bark, roots, and leaves. To alleviate any quality concerns, we obtain all our Chinese herbal products from FDA-regulated nutritional supplements.

Note of Caution
While Herbal Remedies and Supplements aid in treating most conditions, they should not be used where it is necessary to employ surgical intervention, chemo-radiotherapy, strong antibiotics, antihypertensive medicine, or specific diabetic treatment.
As such, patients are required to provide a list of their current medications and vitamin supplements. Our weMED practitioners are committed to selecting the best herbal formula for patient’s conditions to avoid potential interactions. Thus far, we report minimal chemical interactions.
Additionally, patients should keep in mind that while they will see significant improvement in their conditions and perhaps come to believe that medication is unnecessary, patients should always consult their primary care physician about how to safely reduce medications. Our weMED practitioners will not recommend altering medication dosages unless the patient talks to the prescribing physician.
