Course Overview

Shā Rén, one of the cardamoms, is one of Dr. Greg Sperber's favorite herbs, for many reasons. Besides being one of the best tasting herbs, it’s actions help to treat dampness and strengthen the spleen. While not necessarily an “A” list herb, please join us as we explore it. This is another exciting episode of the Sperb's Herbs podcast. Each episode of the podcast will go into great depth about a single herb. Besides covering the basics of Chinese 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 episode's herb.
