Herbal medicine is used to treat many conditions, such as allergies, asthma, eczema, PMS, arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, migraines, menopausal symptoms, and irritable bowel syndrome, and much more.
Dr. Kate offers a variety of dried herbs (in the form of teas) to treat conditions such as indigestion, insomnia, constipation, colds & flus, allergies, stress, and PMS/cramps.
We also have a wide array of liquid herbal tinctures. A herbal tincture is a liquid extract made by soaking herbs in alcohol to extract the active ingredients from the herbs. Alcohol is considered an excellent solvent because it is food grade and can extract herbal constituents that are poorly soluble in water. After a number of weeks, the herbs are then strained and removed, leaving behind the liquid. A tincture can be made of a single herb or a combination of herbs.
We have tinctures available in office for: anxiety and panic attacks, acid reflux, digestive upset, liver cleansing, regulating female hormones (useful in conditions such as endometriosis, menstrual cramping, fibroids, PCOS, hormonal acne, and certain patterns of fertility challenges), hair loss, low libido in both men and women, clearing colds/flus/seasonal infections, memory challenges, inability to concentrate, and cognitive decline disorders, boosting immunity, insomnia, quitting smoking, depression, low mood, nightmares, and stress.
