I have a deep love for plant-based medicine. Classical Chinese tradition has explored herbs in combination for thousands of years to come up with elegant formulas to suit thousands of very specific needs. I rely on the strength and backbone of this lineage's research. In addition, the herbs speak to me, and tell me which herbal formulas go with which people, or how to custom blend your prescription. I believe the herbs are alive on their own terms, and I relate to them as beings. Ancestral Acupuncture only uses herbal companies with rigorous standards for quality, safety, and purity, and I have personally spoken with each company to insure this.
