Introduction And History
Founded in 1996 as a part of the original Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture (PIHMA) with the purpose of serving the academic needs of PIHMA students, the PIHMA Medicinary was later spun off as a separate business with a new mandate. This new mission went beyond that of teaching future healers to a broader focus on service to the community. The PIHMA Herbal Medicinary maintains nearly 450 herbal substances that can be combined to create customized formula to treat a variety of health and wellness issues.
In 2015, the PIHMA Medicinary acquired the medicinary of the America Medical College of Homeopathy. The combination of two powerhouses in the field of healthcare delivery proved to be a natural fit. In Late 2015, the PIHMA Herbal and Homeopathic Medicinary changed its name to the Phoenix Medicinary. The name change marks a new chapter for the Medicinary, now in its 20th year of operation, and reflects its broader scope of service.
Within the Phoenix Medicinary you will find herbal medicine based in traditional Asian medical theory, bolstered by contemporary science; and a homeopathic medicinal collection unrivaled in Arizona.
The Phoenix Medicinary serves the academic needs of students engaged in the study of Oriental Medicine and Homeopathy; serves as a resource to practitioners of integrative and traditional healthcare; and provides the general community with reliable, timely service of their herbal and homeopathic medicinal needs.
The Phoenix Medicinary will be the premier source of herbal and homeopathic medicinal substances for academic, health, and wellness care. The Phoenix Medicinary will also contribute to the ongoing scientific study of integrative and traditional medicines with the goal of discovery of greater avenues of integration into wellness care.
