our proven methods
why Herbal medicine
Herbal medicine is a trusted and valuable treatment approach, grounded in centuries of use, aimed at enhancing health and wellbeing. If you’re grappling with persistent health challenges, here’s why you should consider herbal medicine as part of your healing process:
I developed an extremely annoying case of eczema when I moved to Missouri three years ago. I saw two different dermatologists. Both were unable to get the situation under control, no matter what they tried or prescribed - including various cortisone and immune suppressant creams, and all kinds of antihistamines. The rash was on my neck, shoulders, and face - and made me completely uncomfortable. I resolved that I would just need to endure it, which is basically what others with eczema AND the doctors said - "Sorry, there is no cure for eczema - the best you can hope for is more good days than bad." Gina took a different approach 🙂 She prescribed an herbal formula, which changed everything. Within a week my symptoms were gone. Now, it flares up now and again but 1 day of herbs basically takes care of it. I see Gina for any and every problem I have and she is simply awesome. I especially wanted to write about her magical eczema powers, though, so that everyone else who is suffering knows they have an option!
I've been a patient of Gina's for a long time and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She is attentive and really listens to what you say when you have your appointments. She is also a wizard with herbal tea blends. I've seen her for everything from aches and pains, to perimenopausal and post menopausal symptoms. She has helped me through so much. I'd highly recommend her to anyone trying to heal through a non western medicine approach.
I have been using Gina's expertise in acupuncture and herbal medicine for several years. Her knowledge of acupuncture and its use in present day medicine has led me to visit her office on a monthly basis as part of my healthy lifestyle program. She not only is highly professional, but her "bedside manner" and sincere interest in how she treats me as a patient is something that is highly missing in today's American medical practice. Ric T.
