FAQs

Are Chinese herbs safe?

We feel it is our responsibility to uphold high standards, and thus we take the issues regarding herb safety very seriously.
We only use herbs tested for bacteria, heavy metals, molds, fungus, and pesticides. Furthermore, We uphold the standards of CITES which means that we use no material that comes from endangered species. We use herbs and formulas that are manufactured in cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) certified facilities as well as GAP certified.  

Can herbs have side effects?

The most common side effect of herbs is gas, bloating, or other minor digestive disorders. This kind of reaction is easily corrected by modifying the herb formula. Be sure to inform your practitioner immediately if you notice any adverse reactions.

How is Chinese herbology different from western traditions?

One of the most significant differences is that in traditional Western Herbology, single herbs are often used. Chinese Herbology primarily uses formulas. Formulas are combinations of herbs that can address a variety of complex complaints. Formulas are written to maximize the effects of the primary herbs while minimizing any possible side effects. At Eastern Bench, we specialize in writing custom herbal formulas. Classical formulas are modified to address your complaints.

What if I’m unable to cook the herbs?

No problem! We offer a lot of choices. While raw herb formulas might be the gold standard, they aren’t always practical for everyone. We can have our herbal pharmacy cook the formula for you or capsulize it.  We regularly use Conceivable Proline tinctures and granular concentrates because they work and are so convenient. 

What can I expect my herbal formula to be like?

If we’ve given you raw herbs to decoct, they’ll come in a large bag of exotic looking twigs, leaves, and roots. This herbal formula will have been written specifically for you. We’ll give you cooking directions. You’ll also find them right on the website, under resources. We’ve created 2 easy ways.  Do it while you’re preparing dinner!
In general, they don’t taste familiar. Some herbs are bitter, and some are sweeter. The flavor is an indication of the herbs action. Regardless of the taste, the most crucial part is that you’ll begin to feel better.
