Western and Chinese Herbal Remedies in Jacksonville

Herbal Medicine is using the plants that nature gave us for healing. Herbs can often work as well as or better than medications in some cases, often without the side effects that medications can cause. Most medications originally derived from a plant source. But when specific plant chemicals are reproduced in the lab as a drug, we lose the counter-balancing effect of the chemicals found in the natural plant. Thus using the herb can have much less toxicity and side effects, while being very effective.

Dr. Michael Kowalski, A.P. uses both Chinese and western herbs to restore the body’s balance. He often uses herbal medicine in conjunction with acupuncture and nutritional support.
