Prescribing Chinese herbs is an art. A skilled therapist must know at least 400 plants, understand how they work in synergy, and accurately adapt them to the patient’s unique condition. The therapist must also consider other medications and supplements that the patient is taking and make sure they are appropriate and can work together.
I’m an experienced Chinese Medicine practitioner, and I believe that everyone can heal their body naturally. During the 20 years of my practice, I have used herbs to alleviate symptoms such as pain, treat sleep problems, digestive problems, skin lesions, and helped cure many other diseases.
I helped hundreds of patients heal through the power of Chinese Medicine
and I look forward to meeting you in my clinic.
In ancient times people lived close to the land, used local herbs, and thus knew how to treat local diseases. Yemenis, for example, had “hawaij” added to their coffee consisting of ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves. But today in the age of urbanization and globalization, many of us have moved away from our land and much of this sacred knowledge has been lost. Only those therapists who specialize in herbal medicine and have extensive experience in the field retained the secrets of the past.
Chinese medicine began mapping the types of plants and their effects as far back as 5000 years ago. Today the Chinese medicine books contain a great deal of information on "natural remedies" and list more than 4,000 plants and substances (animal products and minerals) as medicines. The vast knowledge has helped Chinese doctors for thousands of years alleviate and treat almost every symptom and disease we know today.
In the Chinese medical literature the herbal medicines have been documented and defined in great detail, including taste, color, temperature, what effect the plant can cause, what symptoms and diseases can be treated and so on. And all of this was known centuries before the invention of the microscope or modern chemistry.
Practically every medicine we know today comes from herbs. Antibiotics started as a fungus and mold, aspirin is derived from the willow plant, and glucophage, for example, is extracted from the lilac plant.
A Chinese plant called QING HAO is part of the Artemisia (Shiba) family, that is used for treating malaria. These days the plant is also given to patients with coronavirus as a medicine called ARTEMISININ. It has been shown to be effective in preventing the disease and accelerating patients’ recovery.
Today we are using 1000-year-old prescriptions of herbal mixtures that can treat modern problems and diseases such as arthritis, skin diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, cardiovascular infections, women's health conditions including menstrual pain and infertility, migraines, depression, anxiety, etc.
Chinese herbs can be consumed in several forms: capsules, tablets, powder, tincture, granules or dried herbs that must be cooked and drunk as liquid. There are also herbs that are made into creams and lotions for external application. Some of the plants and medicines have a dominant and pungent taste and smell, whole others are sweet or tasteless.
It is usually advisable to take the herbal formula before a meal for optimal absorption.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
— Shelly Hazut
“I highly recommend Yaron for acupuncture treatments, especially for young children and pregnant women. I came to Yaron with my 3-year old son for Hopi candles, as he had some fluid in the ears. My second baby of just 1-year old had a significant hearing problem. We had a few acupuncture treatments and both problems totally went away. My kids, who are usually afraid of all doctors, were so relaxed and didn’t feel a thing! I also recommend all pregnant women to see Yaron, if you have any issues during your pregnancy. When I was 8-month pregnant, I suffered from a severe back pain, to an extent that I couldn’t walk anymore. After a few acupuncture sessions, I was pain free and went back to a normal life. I wholeheartedly recommend Yaron Jakob as a top expert in Chinese Medicine who helps keep the body healthy and strengthen the immune system. And most importantly, Yaron is extremely gentle and sensitive, especially with children of all ages. ”
