What are Chinese Formulas?
Chinese formulas are especially helpful for treating conditions of deficiency or excess. Unlike simple herbs, which is just one herb used at a time, Chinese herbs usually contain a combination of herbs that have a particular strategy for the body.
All herbal medicine is plant-based, and although Chinese herbs are complex, they are safe to use.
All of the 21 Chinese Herbs presented in this course are easy to purchase and very effective. We invite you to have some fun with these and use them in your practice, as you feel comfortable.
Included in this course:
Video lessons (for each category of formulas)
Guidance on how to use each formula
