Dr. David Botton began his journey in to herbology and chinese medicine 15 years ago when researching ancient medical systems of the middle east. In his research he found many of the historians and traditional medical researches had discounted the medicinals that were traditionally used for more than 2000 years as being ineffectual either from the start or due to changes in the nature of man. This notion seemed an impossibility to Dr. Botton, so he began to experiment and do additional research into medical systems in other regions. The results were clear, the key to effective herbal medicines and traditional therapies is the preparation and methods used. There was a subtle edge to the functionality of these ancient medicines that was missed by the modern system of intense stimulation and potent chemicals.
Dr. Botton's journey lead him through homeopathy and both western and eastern systems of herbology, in the process Dr. Botton obtained his degrees and licensing in Homeopathy and Chinese Medicine including Herbology, Acupuncture, Tui Na, and Diet Therapy.
