Menopausal Support

I was undergoing tremendous stress, menopause and bleeding heavily with no sign of quitting for over a week when

I started taking Miranda's Chinese

medicine formula.

It was marvelous: it turned off the spigot!

Herbal medicine, in combination with acupuncture and dietary counseling, forms the primary treatment for internal medical disorders.

Chinese herbs come in various stages of processing. Pills are easiest, but best chewed as not to bypass the saliva with its important digestive enzymes.
Granulated herbs have been cooked and can be dissolved in hot water. Raw herbs need to be simmered a while. Chinese herbs may taste strange, but the effects are powerful.

A consultation begins with an in-depth review of your health history-past and present. Questions will be asked about your main complaint(s) and about the functioning of the various organ systems of your body. Additional information is gathered from examining your tongue, pulse, abdomen and facial color. This information is used to form a Chinese medical diagnosis, which identifies the imbalance that is causing ill health.

A customized herbal formulation (3-25 herbs) will be prescribed to help strengthen, detoxify and balance your system, and to promote your body’s ability to heal and recuperate. Herbs will be prescribed in concentrated granule form, raw Chinese herbs, or as pills. The granules (most commonly prescribed) are extremely safe. Imported from Taiwan, they are pharmaceutical grade and meet very stringent safety requirements.

The formula will not only address your current symptoms, but also your “constitutional” imbalances, which are often at the root of the disorder. Your formula can be reevaluated at regular intervals and fine-tuned as necessary. Diet and lifestyle habits will also be considered, and suggestions will be offered.

Chinese herbs seek to re-balance your body's natural hormones without introducing synthetic chemicals into your system.  Chinese herbal medicine is an effective and safe treatment and has been refined over thousands of years.  After determining the your exact needs, Holly Berman arranges these herbs in a customized individual formula designed for maximum healing.


Miranda and Holly have found that people heal well with Chinese herbal medicine for varying degrees of time. If you have a condition that is unbearable to you, this may be where we begin for the fastest results. Pain, itching, eczema, psoriasis, neuropathy, sinus headaches, migraines, insomnia, and anxiety are most commonly the issues where one might consider Chinese herbal medicine, often alongside acupuncture.
