Every two weeks another exciting new episode of the Sperb’s Herbs podcast is recorded. Each Chinese formula episode covers another amazing Chinese herbal formula and will go into great depth about it. This time it is Gui Zhi Tang’s (Cinnamon Decoction) turn. Besides covering the basics of the formula including category, and functions of both the formula and the individual herbs in the formula, we will explore the history, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each formula. And then there is always something a little quirky about an episode. Whether that is a unique story or an interesting perspective, there will always be something different to learn about episode’s formula.
