DO CHINESE HERBS HAVE SIDE EFFECTS?

There can be some mild adverse reactions to herbals, such as gastrointestinal disturbance (*most of the time this can be prevented by taking the herbs after meal and if that happens, the herbalist will modify the herbal formula to adapt to the patient’s digestive system), dizziness, and rashes (allergy reaction). However, adverse reactions to Chinese herbs are extremely rare and are negligible when compared to commonly produced non-prescribed pharmaceutical drugs.

ARE HERBS SAFE AND DO THEY INTERACT WITH MY MEDICATIONS?​

Yaletown Welness Center

ARE HERBS SAFE AND DO THEY INTERACT WITH MY MEDICATIONS?​

As described in the article titled, “The interactions of herbs and drugs, 2000 START Manuscripts”, the nature of herb-drug interactions is NOT a chemical interaction between a drug and an herb component to produce something toxic.

The herb formulas prescribed by our clinic are meticulously processed using formulas that have been passed down through many generations of herbalist. All ingredients are grown in unpolluted soils that are largely uncultivated by man.

Therefore, they remain in their most natural states to ensure the greatest potency and purity.
