2022 VIHG Workshops

Integrating Local Herbs into Chinese Herbal Medicine

Supply chain issues during the last 2 years have also affected herbalists. Not the least because Chinese herbal medicine was being used a lot, in China, to treat the recent pandemic and there was not always enough to export to Canada. Other reasons such as quality assurance should get you thinking about mixing up your own formulas using your own herbs. Some common herbs are directly substituted for their imported counterparts. Sometimes the synergy created when adding a certain local herb to a standard formula makes it much more potent. Sometimes one can invent new formulas with great results. Applying Chinese herbal medicine theory which is a complete theory integrating materia medica diagnostics and therapeutics to the local herbs we all know can be very powerful. In this workshop I will talk about my experience hybridizing Chinese and Western herbs together in a clinical setting.
