Understanding and applying the practice of Chinese herbal medicine can be challenging and at times confusing. This class is designed to clarify when it is most effective to prescribe a Chinese herbal tea (decoction), versus a pill, powder, tincture or medicinal wine.

This one-day course will provide participants with:

  • An overview of the different forms of Chinese herbs and their efficacy
  • An in-depth discussion of the clinical use of each form
  • Suppliers of quality products
  • A theoretical framework for determining which form would be most appropriate
  • Examples of mixing different forms of herbal medicine tailored to the patient
  • Case studies illustrating the application of the theoretical framework
