chinese herbs

At knotted root, we separate herbal treatment into two categories:

Symptomatic treatment and deep constitutional treatment.

symptomatic treatment

– when you just want an immediate solution or you want your annoying symptoms to go away:

allergies, insomnia, PMS/menstrual pain, menopause, urinary issues/UTI, vaginosis, colds/sore throat, constipation, stress- the list goes on and on and yes we can help you with your symptoms.

There’s nothing wrong with this sort of treatment but it isn’t the only option.

deep constitutional treatment

-when you want to rebuild the foundation of your health

If you have been struggling with chronic symptoms such as reflux, food sensitivity, post nasal drip, insomnia, low energy, depression/anxiety and you want to get to the root of the problem, we are here to treat that.

Shan Han Lun- classical Chinese Herbology that rebuilds your system from the ground up or from the center, outward.

focus on digestion

In Shan Han Lun Chinese classical herbology, the Spleen and Stomach are the central pivot around which everything else revolves.

What does that mean? everything begins and ends with your guts. We treat all manner of digestive disorders including eating disorder, distension, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, slow digestion, reflux/GERD, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, you name it. Please contact us with specific questions about your condition and treatment approach.

rebuilding your foundation

Many health issues start with exhaustion. Overtaxing your resources, either because you are dealing with pain, working too many hours, parenting a small human, getting poor sleep. Each of these are a recipe for dis-ease. Those resources might be restored with enough rest, enough sleep, more help, but often we can’t stop ourselves from overtaxing in the short term.

Here’s where herbs come in. It’s the every day treatment you take to give your body a little extra help and in the long term, it can help support your body’s processes- better sleep, better digestion, better energy.
