How did herbal therapy develop? What are the major herbal systems of the world, and how do they compare and differ? How do herbalists from these various systems choose particular herbs for particular situations? You will learn about the energetic aspects of herbs (for example, herbs which are warming, cooling, drying, & moistening) and how they can impact upon different types of people and conditions. Common assessment techniques of herbalists (including tongue assessment, facial assessment, iridology, and kinesiology) will also be briefly covered.
