This course presents both an exhibition of Chinese herbal theory as well as identification, application and use of individual Chinese herbs. Complementing the three main modules of herbal theory covered is a presentation of Chinese herbs employed clinically in combination with each other. This provides a well rounded foundation for the study of herbal formulas as well as a basis for planning individualized and modified herbal prescriptions.
