This is the webinar to help you understand how to use granules effectively with your patients. Granules are a relatively new development in Chinese herbal medicine, and few practitioners have been exposed to consistent training on key issues such as dosage.
This one-hour webinar will examine several different styles of granule use, including the Taiwanese method of combining whole formulas and the mainland Chinese method of building a formula from scratch with single herb extracts.
The advantages and disadvantages of each of these approaches will be assessed, leaving attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the main clinical trends and challenges in the granule world.
