Dr. Shen's was founded in 1986 by Joel Harvey Schreck, L.Ac., and family at the Shen Clinic in Berkeley, California to provide an alternative to imported Chinese herbal medicines, which have been used for generations but which they knew to contain impurities, be improperly labeled, and made with lesser-grade herbs. Dr. Shen's products are dedicated to making the highest quality Chinese medicines. Dr. Shen's mission is to bridge the cultural gap between Americans and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine. Dr. Shen's imports only whole herbs, never herbal powders. By doing so, they can inspect the appearance and quality of the herbs, and insure the correct herb is used. Herbspro.com is proud to carry the entire range of this fine brand.
