Finding a Herbalist
It is important to find a herbalist that you have a good relationship with, as you may be seeing them for quite a long time. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a long term approach and my herbalist made it clear early on, that this sort of treatment could take up to two years. With this in mind, remember that the first herbalist you go to, might not be the one you stick with for the long haul. You need to both be committed to this.
Who does Meg recommend?
Doctor Kevin Lu, situated in Chinese Ginseng & Herbs Co, the first and oldest Chinese herbal store in Sydney. There are no appointments here, so you need to have a bit of time, in case the wait it a little while. Chinese Ginseng & Herbs Co stock a huge range of over 1200 medicinal herbs, so your script will be filled on the spot. He has treated many people with itp before I came along and was confident in his work. First consultation is $20 and every return visit $15, the price of herbs will vary each week.
