During each class you will watch a lecture video about several related herbal preparations. These lectures will include the history of each herbal preparation, as well as the chemistry that causes the preparation to be effective and how to properly use each preparation including any safety issues or contraindications.
We will learn how each preparation is made and will discuss which herbs would be appropriate to use for each preparation. The focus of this class is on the preparation of herbs and not on herbs themselves and as such some prior knowledge of herbs is extremely helpful to have coming into this class.
After viewing the materials for each class students will be asked to answer questions and post them to our classroom message board.
