We know herbs work…as practitioners, we see it all the time. This course takes a deep dive into a bunch of herbs that act like drugs. We will be exploring how the drugs and herbs work from a bio- and Chinese medical point of view. Can we use these herbs to replace certain drugs? Can understanding these drugs help us understand the herbs at a new level?
