Course Overview

This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on July 7, 2024 - 1pm PDT, 4pm EDT.


We are going to be recording two episodes of the Sperb's Herbs podcast. The first covers an interesting herb of the world, Plantago ovata (Blond Psyllium), a great source of fiber, but can it help diabetes and cholesterol? The second episode covers the Chinese herb Xi Xin (Asarum) from the warm, acrid herbs that release the exterior. Each episode of the podcast will go into great depth about a single herb or formula. Besides covering the basics of herbology including category, and functions, we will explore the history, quality, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each herb. And then there is always something a little quirky about an episode. Whether that is a unique story or an interesting perspective, there will always be something different to learn about these herbs and formula!
