Maximizing the Clinical Efficacy of Granules
with Eric Brand LAC
Zoom Event
4 CEU pending

 

Granules are a relatively new development in Chinese herbal medicine, and many practitioners remain uncertain about issues related to dosage and formulation styles. This lecture will examine several regional styles of granule use, including the formula combining approach that is common in Taiwan, as well as issues to consider when building formulas from single herb extracts. The advantages of different approaches will be assessed, leaving attendees with a comprehensive overview of the main clinical trends and challenges in the granule world.

By the end of the class, attendees will understand:
– Granule dosage and formulation strategies
– How to overcome challenges unique to granules
– How granules are made and prescribed in Asia
– Practical tips for running an effective granule pharmacy
