Sperb’s Herbs – Warm and Release the Exterior Herbs
This week’s episode actually covers an entire category of Chinese herbs: the warm and release the exterior herbs. This is usually the first category of herbs Chinese medical practitioners learn and it has some really important Chinese herbs. In addition, we will be talking about external pathogens from a Chinese medical perspective and how we contract colds. This episode is jam packed with tons of useful information!
Every other week an exciting new episode of the Sperb’s Herbs podcast is recorded. Each episode covers another Chinese or world herb or formula and will go into great depth about it. 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 episode’s herb.
A listener will be able to:
- Comprehend basic Chinese and bio- medical information about warm and release the exterior herbs
- Converse about current scientific evidence about the uses, dangers, and effectiveness of herbs in the differences between individual herbs in the warm and release the exterior category
- Understand the differences between individual herbs in the warm and release the exterior category
- Understand and prevent any potential drug-herb interactions
