Integral Health Apothecary presents: FAR EAST SUMMIT Refined Herbal Medicinals, "Medicine is the Art of Humanity"

FAR EAST SUMMIT Refined Herbal Medicinals

“Medicine is the Art of Humanity”

The Far East Summit Chinese Classic formulas are a full line of traditional Chinese 5:1 liquid extracts that are generally distributed to healthcare professionals with a background in traditional Chinese medicine or another plant-based health modality. These classical Chinese formulas have been utilized by practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, and are still the basis for the study and practice of medicine in China and East Asia. It has been increasingly hard to source trustworthy herbal products directly from Asia but Far East Summit has been manufacturing in a state-licensed, FDA-registered production facility in the USA since 1997, sourcing and compounding using only the purest materials and best manufacturing processes.
