If you haven't seen the Acupuncturist for a while, and you would like to know if you can still take your left over herbs for your condition, or if you should take new ones, and your not sure which ones, I would advise you to come in for a stricktly Herbal Medicine consultation. Often times your condition changes on a daily basis, so what worked for you last week, month or year, might not work now. When you come in we can talk about everything that is going on with you Medically right now, and I can make you a new Herbal prescription. I will do a short intake with you, we will probably talk about your diet, and what kinds of medicines or supplements you have been taking, and you will be on your way with a new supplement/ Herbal Chinese Medicine plan for your healthy lifestyle, or be able to fight that lingering cold, or cough.
