You can use this knowledge to build formulas perfectly suited to your own needs, those of your friends and family, or even while working with clients.
In this course we cover a number of options for sourcing quality herbs. We also cover general dosing guidelines when using herbs in a tonic manner and explain how using herbs for acute situations requires much different dosing.
While this course does not include in-depth information on various herbs that you might consider including in your formulas, a few options are mentioned for where you can start your journey in learning about herbs and their safety profiles. Then we dive into the steps it takes to plan out what herbs to include in your herbal formulas to ensure that you are targeting the correct area to address the root cause of the issue. We go over how to decide how much of each herb to use and how to write out your herbal recipes. Then we discuss the various remedies that you might turn your recipes into and steps to consider should you need to change or improve your formula.
At the end of this course, there is a downloadable Quick Guide PDF with notes from the entire course so that you can refer back to the information as often as you need!
This course does not cover the steps to making the various herbal remedies, but rather the steps to take to come up with custom herbal recipes that have specific targets and actions.
