Using Western Herbs in Chinese Medicine
Sun, August 13, 2017, 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM EDT
In this workshop we will review all previous efforts to classify western (American & European) herbs in Chinese medicine categories (taste & character, meridians entered, actions & indications) – we have collected eight publications on the topic, plus we’ll be referencing 75+ reports by my students at Daoist Traditions. A particular focus will be native (S. Appalachian) herbs with closely related Chinese species, such as Black cohosh / sheng ma, wild yam / bie xie, Solomon’s seal / yu zhu, American / Asian ginseng, etc. Mountain Gardens offers a unique opportunity to view these herbs in close proximity.
