Sperb’s Herbs – Wu Gong (Centipede)
This is an exciting episode of the Sperb’s Herbs podcast. This episode covers the Chinese herb Wu Gong (Centipede). 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 episode’s herb.
