Sperb’s Herbs, – Bai Tou Weng (Pulsatilla)

The Chinese herb Bai Tou Weng (Pulsatilla) is not an A-lister, but it is a useful herb. This episode will cover what it does, its history, and the science and pharmacology behind it. Plus, as something a little different, we are going to discuss “toxins,” both from a modern alternative medicine perspective (spoiler alert: not a fan), and a Chinese medical approach. Some controversy is ahead, so buckle up and join us for a unique episode…

This is an exciting episode of the Sperb’s Herbs podcast. This episode covers the Chinese herb Bai Tou Weng (Pulsatilla). Each episode of the podcast will go into great depth about a single herb. Besides covering the basics of Chinese herbology including category, and functions, we will explore the history, quality, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each herb. 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 Bai Tou Weng (Pulsatilla).

This course will be presented on Saturday, July 3, 2021, from 1-2pm pst via live webinar.
