A continuation of Western Herb’s in Clinical Practice I offered earlier this year; this 15-hour class explores the medicinal uses of more than forty Western Herbs. Rylen will discuss historical, traditional and current usage of popular and effective herbs. Appropriate single, locally sourced herbs can offer superior energetic quality to stored, imported herbs. Rylen will layer in the Chinese Medicine energetics of the Western Herbs she covers as appropriate or available. Adding the energetics to Western herbs allows us to have a broader perspective and more nuanced discrimination in our herb choices.
We will cover:
- Considerations in making effective formulas
- Historic, traditional and current use of each herb
- Western Herbs categorized by TCM energetic principles
- Drug/herb/nutrient interactions and contraindications
Depending on groups interest, students can elect to make and share an herbal preparation with the class.
The study and use of herbs are one of Rylen’s greatest joys! She has been utilizing and practicing herbs for over 30 years.
*This is an excellent class for anyone interested in the clinical use of Western herbs including Chinese Medicine practitioners wanting to introduce Western herbs into their practice.
