Benefits of Chinese Herbs over Prescription Drugs

Resident-friendly communities offer services and structure that supports a positive living environment. You’ll find people exercising in various ways from swimming in the pool to taking a morning walk. These communities are also up-to-date on the latest news in wellness including the detriment of many prescription drugs and the benefit of Chinese herbs. 

For example, one herb that carries no risk of addiction is Yan Hu Suo, a natural pain reliever which is healthy alternative to opioids. This herb is also used to treat PTSD and drug withdrawal to calm irritability and pain. Some PTSD veterans have declared this herb can mitigate alcohol addiction, improve sleep patterns and decrease anxiety, unlike prescriptions like Ambien and Vicodin.

East West College of Natural Medicine has a professional clinic and herbal pharmacy that offers more than 400 raw herbs and numerous patent formulas. The raw herbs are carefully selected to guarantee they are organically grown and free of pesticides or preservatives. All students are trained in the herbal dispensary, working with patients to assess, prescribe and prepare formulas under the supervision of our resident pharmacist.
