Welcome to Physicians Herbal Formula:
We offer natural herbal remedies for many common symptoms. Traditional eastern herbalism has offered effective healing arts based upon thousands of years of clinical trials and philosophical, theoretical frameworks. Herbal formulas are widely popular in modern eastern societies, because of their high efficacy for promoting natural well being. Herbal doctors in modern Korea are a professionally educated group with years of training just like medical doctors in America. Usually the herbal formulas consumed in east are high quality decoctions specifically taylored for the individual's diagnosis and constitution.
Physicians herbal formulas introduce modernized and effective herbal formulas for all of us in modern culture, captured in capsules or powders for ease of administration, and formulated by an American medical doctor with an integrated practice of modern biomedicine and traditional herbalism. For effectiveness, multiple formulas are offered for most symptoms with algorithms for the differentiation of the syndromes.
Natural herbal remedy for an X symptom or for well being is more effective, when the herbs are combined in a strategic, balanced formula. Any X symptom or an illness can be caused by different etiologies and pathogenetic mechanisms. There is no one powerful herb for all types of cough, dry mouth, diarrhea, abdomenal pain, fatigue, etc. All the symptoms must be diagnosed into a specific disease pattern, before an effective herbal formula can be prescribed.
1) any X symptom arises from multiple neurohormonal responses by an organism to disturbed homeostasis.
One biophysical constant for homeostasis is the stable internal temperature. Thermoregulation occur in response to internal heat production during metabolic reactions in various organs such as brain, liver, and muscles. One cause of disturbed homeostasis in internal temperature is the production of excess heat during " excessive " metabolic reactions. A common case is that of heat produced in brain during excessive mental exertions such as thinking or worrying too much. Chronic excess heat is also produced in liver with an overload of toxins/ drugs. Heat produced in diverse overloaded organs with inefficient work outputs are carried by the blood vessels to oral mucosa, cheeks, soles, and palms to be emitted to the environment by local arteriolar dilation. Thus the familiar symptoms of dry mouth, sore throat, burning tongue, hot face, palms, and soles result.
2) a single herb or a major chemical constituent of a herb may not correct all the pathogenetic mechanisms behind an X symptom. In cases of excess heat production by different organs, a single herb may not slow down all the cranked up chemical reactions with inefficient work and clear heat in all involved organs, or diminish the transfer of heat to peripheral tissues by " cooling blood heat ", or calm down all the reactive sympathetic and adrenal responses. A well balanced formula with each herb doing her function may correct the multiple pathogenetic mechanisms causing an X symptom.
3)There may be undesirable effects from overusing only a single herb. Even those Herbs tested by medical research such as “adaptogenic” astragalus root, ginseng, eleuthero root ( siberian ginseng), or ginkgo,etc may lead to imbalances in bioenergy, if used a long term singularly, and may cause “heat build up” and dry mouth, headache, dizziness,etc. Seemingly innocuous ginger may be contraindicated in cough due to bronchitis with dark sputum. Such unwanted effects of the herbs are predictable effects of overusage singularly. Astragalus,ginseng, and ginger are all warm herbs producing heat. When taken by individuals with much heat inside already,”overheating”effects may result in symptoms. On the other hand, well known herbs such as coptis ( the rich source of berberine for diarrhea ), skullcap roots ( the source of baicalain for diarrhea) or American ginseng for fatigue or Japanese knotweeds ( Hu Zhang from which comes resveratrol, a well known antioxidant in grapes ) are cold herbs that may cause abdomenal pain with diarrhea with overusage. Even “foods”cause imbalances. Overeating suger and dairy products chronically causes “sticky” water metabolism,and may result in overproduction of phlegms( one may read about the phlegms in our cough section ).
Each natural herb contain wonderful ingredients including antioxidants. There are about 500 different eastern herbs routinely used in formulas, and many of them have amazing, biomedical actions by western medical researches done in India, China, Korea, and Japan; for example, a herb called Shu di huang ( steamed rehmannia ) has antiinflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiallergic, antipyretic, antineoplastic, as well as adrenal tonic, nervine, sialogue, and neuroprotective actions proven by researches. Rehmannia has more than 30 different iridoids including aucubin with anticancer effects, in addition to numerous organic acids, amino acids, sugars, and beta-sitosterol. However, Phytochemists have only rudimentary knowledge of how each chemical constituents of a herb or multiple different herbs work synergistically to produce many biological and bioenergetic effects. Although Shu di huang has numerous actions by animal and laboratory researches, eastern herbal medicine never uses shu di huang alone to treat any of the many common ill symptoms caused by disrupted homeostasis. Shu di huang in traditional medicine is one of the supreme tonic herbs that build up the substantial bodily energy ( " kidney yin "; her tonic action is different from astralgus or ginseng which tonify the dynamic bodily energy called " Qi" ). For chronic fatigue due to deficiency of both substantial and dynamic energies, Shu di huang can be used as the king herb, with assistance from other tonic herbs including warm qi boosters, which must be balanced by cooling herbs that clear heat arising from tonification. Phytochemical knowledge of in vitro laboratory studies alone do not give the herbal experts as to how to employ shu di huang in conjunction with assitant herbs for healing an X symptom such as chronic fatigue. A well designed herbal formula can bring out the best healing power of a herb such as rehmannia.
Physician's natural herbal formulas are based on the differentiation of x symptoms into different disease patterns, and offer the corrective formulas for the most common syndromes. Using the language of traditional herbal medicine, such herbal formulas eliminate the pathogenetic factors by proper means and routes, tonify the deficient energy flows, strategically open up the blocked energy flows in neurohormonal and vascular networks of organ systems, and restore homeostasis and well being.
All our modernized formulas, aiming to manage/ heal complex symptoms of modern culture, have been designed by Dr. Dong W Shin who is the only U.S. educated physician ( MD at Northwestern ) fully trained in both internal medicine and pathology, as well as eastern herbs and acupuncture. After rigorous study and experiences of herbal formulas with patients, He has come up with the natural herbal formulas effective for common clinical symptoms that can complement the modern drugs synergystically with little side effects.
