Therapeutics aim to strengthen each patient's constitutional weaknesses but also to address any symptoms of disease or illness which may already be presenting. An emphasis is placed on herbs which are purchased from educated suppliers who distribute products that are among the most regulated, convenient, and cost effective in the industry.
