Tinctures

Trillium Chinese Medicine can offer a few different forms of medicine. Tincture is often a suggested way to take herbal medicines.

Tinctures are concentrated liquid medicine that uses alcohol to extract the essence of the herbs. Trillium Chinese Medicine uses tinctures that is strictly made by Yumi.

There are many benefits using tincture.

  • You don’t need to cook herbs. If you are only given the tincture bottles. I may combine with powdered raw herb. I may still ask you to cook some herb to make decoction to combine with tincture.
    • Not all herbs can be taken raw, and sometime I need the heat to activate the medicinals, so the best way to administrate the medicine really depends on the herbs and the intention.
  • The dosage is stronger. When Yumi prescribes one week worth of herbs, the dosage is lower than standard dosage. It is more practical to prescribe that way so it is easier to cook and not too expensive. The tincture’s dosage is much closer to the standard dosage.
  • The small amount of alcohol is beneficial to move stagnations

Price: One week of tincture herbs is $40. This includes all other additional herbs. If you need another bottle of tincture because your illness requires stronger dosage, it will be $55 a week.
