    For thousands of years, natural herbal remedies have been used to improve health, vitality, and overall life expectancy. Over the past thirty years the effectiveness of many of these herbs has been proven as effective in the treatment of numerous serious illnesses.  Tatianna and Zachari are both Licensed herbalists by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine)and the North Carolina Acupuncture Board.  They have studied both Eastern and Western Herbs. AAWC offers herbs in four main forms:     


 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Granules


Bulk herbs are extracted down to a powder form.   This highly effective form of herbal treatment is particularly useful because we can combine particular single herbs to suit a specific person.  We carry over 200 single herbs in granules.

 


Tinctures  

 

An alcohol extraction of medicinal herbs.  We make our own tinctures at Acupuncture Alliance for a variety of conditions.

 


Patents  

 

Pre-made bottles of "Tea-Pills," Chinese patent medicine generally consist of several herbs and other ingredients, dried and ground into powder, mixed and formed into pills. The binder is traditionally honey.  The pills are often small, spherical, and black, appearing like black pearls.  We use Plum Flower Brand patents, one of the highest quality patents there are.
