Fat Turtle Herbal Pharmacy was created by acupuncturists for acupuncturists
After years of racing around Los Angeles in search of quality herbs and ordering
from a multitude of companies we knew there was a better way to get what we need
for our patients. We were finished with prescribing patent tea pills and formulas
pre-made for the masses. Healing is more than that. So a mission was born, to
create an Herbal Pharmacy using only premium grade herbs, compounded to order, in
any format, for practitioners of Traditional Herbal Medicine.
"We are here to help you compose safe and powerful formulas, as unique as your patients.”
