Herbal Medicine

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

This clinic uses herbal and enzyme formulas that are specific in their therapeutic actions. Herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. Herbal formulas are used to reinforce the action of the acupuncture, and work to give patients daily nutritional support.

Unlike many other supplements on the market, Thera-Zyme supplements are not megadoses of isolated nutrients, which can be problematic for patients on Western drugs. Whole herbs or whole food complexes are used for all of the synergists within the herbs and help nourish the body slowly. We do not believe in hyperdosing of nutrients to correct nutritional deficiencies.  

While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Chinese herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to certain types of cancer.

Acupuncture and Oriental MedicineThere are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. You will generally receive a mixture of several different herbs in a formula that has been tailored to your condition. Chinese herbs are extremely effective and normally have only mild side effects, however it is very important to tell me about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formula.

At times, I use a database to double-check any suspected interactions with prescribed medications, any over-the-counter meds and supplements you are taking, and what I am considering dispensing to you. See the database here.


Thera-Zyme products are only available through health care professionals.

Thera-Zyme has been formulated by Dr. Howard F. Loomis, a renowned chiropractor and educator.
