Western herbal supplements are in widespread use, often self-prescribed by patients as OTC medicines. Knowledge of these herbs and their potential interactions with Chinese herbs, nutritional supplements and prescription medications is essential for safe practice.

In some instances, Western herbalists have discovered additional uses for the same plants used in Chinese Herbal Medicine, which are a valuable addition to traditional Chinese herbology.

Additionally, there are a number of Western herbs with no counterpart in Chinese Herbology which are highly efficacious and make an excellent addition to the toolkit of every practitioner of Oriental Medicine. Sometime they can be used based on their energetic properties, and others based on their chemical constituents.

In many cases, herbal medicines, properly prescribed and integrated into an overall treatment plan, are a safer and more effective option than prescription drugs.

This course is an introduction to the most important Western Herbs every health care provider needs to know to practice safely and effectively in our modern culture.
