Herbal Formulas Price Change

Posted by admin on Jul 9, 2011 in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Chinese Medicine

Due to increases in manufacturer and distributor costs OMHC is raising the cost of its in stock herbal patent medications [bottles of Herbal Times Tea Pills]. The cost is rising from $8 a bottle [tax included] to $9 a bottle [tax included]. This will allow OMHC to continue to offer a wide variety of these potent herbal formulas.

Additionally a new pricing policy for custom granule formulas is going into effect as of 7/9/2011. The new policy has granule formulas priced at $0.20 a gram plus the 2% sales tax on food supplements. This means that if you take 3 grams of formula 3 times a day you use 63 grams a week costing you $12.60 plus $0.25 in tax for a total weekly cost of $12.85. This pricing policy is in effect for all standard granule formulas containing herbs that are normally stocked. If a specialty herb needs to be ordered the price per gram for that herb may vary.

If you have any questions about these price changes or anything related to Chinese herbal medicine please contact me via the website or at (828) 283-0268 or stop by the office in Waynesville, NC at 292 N. Haywood St.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Posted by admin on Apr 8, 2010 in Chinese Medicine

According to the Western perception, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) mainly refers to acupuncture.  In fact, acupuncture is only a small part of Chinese medicine.  The main part is clinical diagnostics and herbal medicine. Acupuncture was first introduced to the West when American president Richard Nixon visited China and was presented with a demonstration of acupuncture used as anesthesia in surgery. [Really what happened was that an aid to Nixon needed emergency surgery to remove his appendix and after the surgery he received acupuncture for the post-operative pain, this incident is very often mis-cited as it is the first exposure many Americans had to Chinese medicine]

When acupuncture was first legalized in the state of California, the practice of Chinese herbal medicine was grouped together with it in order to save administration costs.  Yet the fact is that acupuncturists are usually not trained in the practice of Chinese herbal medicine, which takes a longer time to master, and many herbal doctors are not trained in acupuncture.

In recent years, many acupuncture schools in Western countries have started to teach Chinese herb medicine.

Old Mountain Health Center located in beautiful Waynesville, North Carolina offers acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies.  Call us today to find out about classes or to schedule an appointment with Nate.  (828) 283 – 0268
