Si Wu Tang (Four Substances Decoction)


Sperb’s Herbs – Si Wu Tang (Four Substances Decoction)

This is an exciting episode of the Sperb’s Herbs podcast. This episode covers the Chinese formula Si Wu Tang. Each episode of the podcast will go into great depth about a single formula. 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. This episode we will look at skepticism both as a philosophical construct but also specifically in regards to Chinese medicine. Readily heady stuff you won’t want to miss…
