Sperb’s Herbs Using Formulas

Each week an exciting new episode of the Sperb’s Herbs, Chinese Formulas podcast is recorded9/. This episode is a little different in that we will explore how to prepare, dose, and administer herbal formulas to maximize patient compliance and medical effectiveness. Looking at traditional methods of preparation, we will discuss why one would choose one method over another. We will explore steady state calculations (don’t worry, there won’t be any math) to figure how out the best frequency of dosing herbs. This episode will be an amazing combination of tradition and modern pharmacology with the end goal of figuring out how to best support our patients. It is a must listen to podcast for any herbal practitioner.
