A Modern Take on an Ancient Medicine
The guiding mission of the nonprofit organization, Urban Herbs is to spread the use of Chinese Medicine by offering sliding-scale, affordable herbal consultations. In our clinic in Five Points Denver, we expand our reach by seeing low-income patients and educating our community about the benefits of Chinese Medicine. Our secondary mission is to support practitioners without pharmacies of their own, but who wish to offer the full scope of their training in the tradition of custom Chinese herbal prescribing. With an intuitive, secure interface, practitioners can quickly and easily create, save, and modify custom herbal formulations, and offer convenient billing and retrieval options to their clients. Urban Herbs seeks to do this work in a way that isn't simply about growing clients, but community - putting heart, not just herbs, into every formula we prepare.
If you prescribe Chinese herbal formulations and don't have a pharmacy of your own - or have one that limits your ability to customize - you have to make a choice about where you source your formulas. Far from trivial, this choice is not only about making your clients better, but doing so in a way that reaches beyond the well being of a single patient or office. This is important because Chinese herbal prescribing is founded in interconnectedness: when each of us does better, we all do better. Choosing Urban Herbs means choosing to practice within and for your community, in a way that truly embodies the spirit of the work.
We firmly believe that clients should experience clinicians working collectively, openly, and compassionately, for the benefit of all. Furthermore, that a commitment to this type of care is duly reflected in the work we all provide, makes our clients better faster, our medicine more widespread, and brings new levels of energy and professionalism to the field.
