Event Host


Overview

Every other week an exciting new episode of the Sperb's Herbs podcast is recorded. This episode is a little different in that we will explore how to prepare, dose, and administer herbal formulas to maximize patient compliance and medical effectiveness. Looking at traditional methods of preparation, we will discuss why one would choose one method over another. We will explore steady state calculations (don’t worry, there won’t be any math) to figure how out the best frequency of dosing herbs. This episode will be an amazing combination of tradition and modern pharmacology with the end goal of figuring out how to best support our patients. It is a must listen to podcast for any herbal practitioner.

Overview

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.
