What’s a zhong yi? In China, that means simply a doctor of Chinese internal medicine*. An acupuncturist is like the Western medicine surgeon, while the zhong yi is more like the pharmacist or the internal medicine doctor. The zhong yi and the acupuncturist speak the same language and some of our treatment principles overlap somewhat, but the tools we use are different. I use herbs exclusively. At EagleHerbs.com we provide these herbs in convenient flavor crystals optionally placed in capsules.
That’s what I do. Chinese internal medicine*. You don’t have to be Chinese of course, it works for everybody equally well. :)
There are three ways to interact with me.
Using the free consultation form. The email response you will be sent (usually within 24 hours) provides links to specific formulas at this site that can help you regulate, support, encourage and moderate your body’s structures and functions. It’s quick, it’s free. It’s available 24/7. What’re you waiting for?
The telephone consultation. This is the best choice for those who want a customized formula where each and every ingredient is perfectly suited to your particular needs. The cost is $100 for the first month which includes enough flavor crystals to last you 3-4 weeks. You can have that encapsulated too for an additional $40.
The in-person consultation. This is for those who can get to the Station Pharmacy at 1820 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica CA., 90403. Consultations are by appointment only. Appointments are $150 for the tongue assessment, pulse taking, lots of questions, plus the first month’s worth of customized herb formula. Please contact us to initiate that process. I see patients during the following times:
Tuesday through Friday, 10 am to 3 pm
(last appointment scheduled at 3 pm)
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

*There are oodles of laws that prevent me from claiming to be a doctor or using medicine to help patients. These two terms (doctor and medicine) are used on this page only for the sake of clarity and should not be taken to mean that Al Stone is a physician using drugs to fix diseases. Only “doctors” using “medicine” can treat “disease”. Al Stone has a doctorate in Oriental medicine and uses herbs to balance, regulate, support and promote health.
