Chinese Herbal Medicine in Santa Monica


Extending back thousands of years, Chinese Medicine offers a rich heritage and history in healthcare and healing. And that quality, that continuum of care lives on today, with the Chen family. For more than a decade, Evergreen Herbs has crafted superior quality Chinese herbal supplements, while offering education and advice to the trusted doctors who practice this highly refined ancient art. Offering a root-level attack rather than a symptom cover, Chinese Medicine provides an added layer of patient safety. You see, it carries fewer or no side effects, treats the actual cause of illness rather than suppressing the symptoms, and provides a more affordable treatment option.


Should you and your doctor decide that herbs are right for you, there are 3 unique steps to wellness. However, the rate at which you move through these stages depends on your unique situation. A good rule of thumb is one month of care for every year you have had a certain medical condition.

Step 1: Symptomatic Care
During this stage, your doctor is concerned with alleviating the symptoms causing you to seek his or her care. Once your symptoms are relieved, you will move on to Step 2, Corrective Care.
If this is difficult to understand, think of replenishing an overgrown garden. The first step in cultivating the space is to cut back excess growth and weeds. Your symptoms are very much like the weeds.

Step 2: Corrective Care
In order to restore your health, your physician must also determine the underlying cause of your illness, rather than simply addressing the symptoms. This involves a second Evergreen formula uniquely positioned and carefully prescribed to address the root of your concerns. Often, patients enjoy the second treatment phase for two to six months.

Continuing the garden analogy, we now must take complete care to remove the weeds from the soil and prepare the soil for new seeds to plant. Using appropriate tools, the roots are extracted, leaving healthy plants and rich earth behind. Step 2 heals what is creating and causing your pain and discomfort, setting the stage for healthy living.
