Event Details

Native plants of North America are essential to the practice of herbal medicine throughout the world. This six-session webinar series introduces a materia medica of these plants and places them within the energetic context of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The actions and energetic properties of forty herbs are covered in depth with an emphasis on the clinical use of herbal preparations. The material medica draws from Native American and folk traditions and includes only plants that are regionally abundant and available from sustainable sources. Topics covered include uses of the individual herbs, dosage strategies, preparations, a review of herbal products using the herbs, and clinical applications for both acute and chronic health issues.

Log-in details will be emailed one week before the event, and again the day before.


This series qualifies for 12 biomedicine PDA points from the National Certification Commision for Acupunture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM.) Please note, registrants will only earn these PDA points if they are present at the time of the live course (recordings will still be available.)
