WEBINAR TOPIC:

 

THE ENERGETICS OF WESTERN HERBS: THE IMPORTANCE FOR OPTIMAL TREATMENT, WITH SPECIFICS FOR GI CONDITIONS

 

All herbs have different energetic properties, they can be cooling or warming, drying or nourishing and all diseases have unique pattern - for example too much heat, too much phlegm.  With the growing popularity of herbal medicines, often individuals forget this important aspect of herbal prescribing and forget the basic energetics of herbs when formulating herbal prescriptions and tend to use the herbs more as a ‘green’ drug.  This lecture will focus first on the comparison with Eclectic and physiomedical terminology in comparison with Chinese terminology.  Practically, the patterns seen in common animal GI issues will then be matched with the energetics of western herbs.

 

ABOUT CYNTHIA LANKENAU:

 

Cindy grew up on a dairy farm and graduated from Cornell's veterinary school in 1981. She practiced in the dairy industry and joined the Peace Corps until the death of the family farm, finding herself very disillusioned by the lack of healing conventional practice. It was a lame horse that started  her down the path of alternative medicine in 1990, opening the door into this world of looking at the whole animal and truly attempting to heal and not just suppress symptoms.  She really loves all the different modalities but really, really loves herbal medicine.
