Chinese Herbal Medicine

Granules

Granules are a powered form of chinese herbs that are disolved into hot water. The process of making granules uses modernized extraction and concentration technologies to replicate the traditional method of preparing medicinal decoction.

Granules are easy to digest and are good for any condition. They are the most bio-available form of herbs next to cooking raw herbs.

 

Mara orders granules specifically for your condition, she is able to pick 4-12 various Chinese herbs that will work together synergistically for your case. These are safe for children.

Pill Form and Capsules

The pill form of herbs is similar to the granule process, but it binds them to form a pill. Most pill forms are specific formulas with 4-12 Chinese herbs that are already prepared. Mara has these available at the office or may order you a specific kind.

 

Capsules usually are the granules put into gluten free capsules. Some formulas are already prepared in a bottle. Mara can also special order them for your specific needs.

 

These two forms are best for when granules are not pleasing to the taste. They are usually still taken with warm water to digest similarly to tea.
