  • INTENSIVE - From Symptom to Formula - This intensive introduces a step-by-step method for assessing symptoms presented during an intake, determining the herbal actions needed, and  generating a list of herbs to consider in creating effective formulas. This method uses body systems and herbal actions to provide easy-to-follow guidelines for organizing and prioritizing acute and chronic symptoms.
    Learn to recognize patterns behind seemingly random symptoms, determine specific actions needed and organize everything into practical and elegant formulas. We will demonstrate the method using several case studies. While we will take a Western herbal approach to classify herbal actions and body systems, this method can easily be modified and applied to more energetic healing systems. This method for determining botanical protocols empowers herbalists to design effective formulas confidently. In this intensive, you will learn:
    • To organize symptoms gathered through an intake.
    • A deeper understanding of how herbal actions affect specific body systems.
    • To differentiate between chronic and acute symptom patterns to create effective botanical protocols.
    • Empower you to formulate with confidence.
    Includes extensive handouts
