When we are looking to feel better or to improve chronic health issues, we may turn to a range of remedies, including drugs or lifestyle changes. However, it is easy to lose hope when these remedies or changes do not work, which is oftentimes the case. Drugs are likely to target only symptoms of disease, and not the actual root cause. People following Ayurvedic habits may find they feel better, but that they can’t completely achieve the health transformation they seek in order to thrive.
Eric Karchmer has 20 years of
education in Chinese medicine, and through his work at Dao Labs, he
is bringing ancient wisdom back to modern times. Dao Labs offers
herbal remedies for a variety of health issues, and they are all
rooted in the ancient teachings of Chinese herbal medicine.
Eric and Cate chat about what Chinese medicine has to offer to the modern world with knowledge regarding herbs and herbal combinations. The products at Dao Labs address common underlying health issues in the population, so more people can bring this great wisdom into their modern lives. We know that not getting enough sleep can cause a myriad of health issues down the road. Dao Labs offers two different sleep remedies based on different underlying imbalances.
Often, even with lifestyle
changes, we need something more to really get at the imbalances in
our systems in order to feel better, and thrive sooner. Chinese
medicine can be that powerful missing piece that gets us headed in
the right direction.
Dr. Eric Karchmer’s interest in Chinese medicine began when he visited Taiwan to teach English 30 years ago. He holds both a PhD in Anthropology and a Bachelor of Medicine from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. His research focuses on modern developments of Chinese medicine in China. With over 20 years of education in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dr. Eric Karchmer develops DAO Labs’ proprietary herbal formulas.
As a respected academic thought leader and practitioner of
Chinese Medicine, Eric designs the most efficacious mix of herbs to
bring balance to the mind, body and spirit. He has
published several academic articles and is currently working on the
final copy of his new book, Double Truths, Postcolonial
Transformations in Chinese Medicine.
In addition to regularly teaching at Appalachian State University, Eric can also be found helping clients using Chinese medicine at his clinic in Boone, North Carolina. At his clinic, he practices both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. His wife and three children are, not surprisingly, big fans of Chinese medicine as well.
