ANSWERS FROM CARLOS:
QUESTION
: Which herbs are among the best out of all other to use to counteract kidney yin deficiency?  What kind of diagnosis service you provide ;yin yang ;or pitta vatta kapha ;???  do you offer custom formulation of herbs ?

ANSWER: Since all of us are different and all diagnostic responses are different it is clear to you I'm sure that there are no "best out of all others" herbs to treat kidney Yin deficiency.

The principal formulas used in Chinese medicine are: Zhi Bai Di Huang Wan (Anemarrhena, Phellodendron, and Rehmannia Pill) It treats kidney Yin deficiency with empty Heat. For Kidney Qi Deficiency we normally use You Gui Yin (Restore the Right (Kidney) Decoction) or Jin Gui Shen Qi Wan (Kidney Qi Pill from the Golden Cabinet) or Da Bu Yin Wan (Great Tonify the Yin Pill), but it all depends on the clinical manifestations. 

I provide a diagnostic service using principles from Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is the most accurate. The Ayurvedic system is too general for me.  We can offer custom formulation, but only after a diagnosis is done by us, and only if its in accordance to verifiable and established principles.
