Get a dose of herbal wisdom!

Learn the nuances of dosing and gain the wisdom of these practitioners' distinctive backgrounds and experiences.
Join this enlightening discussion led by two seasoned herbal practitioners as they delve into the diverse dosing approaches prevalent in herbal medicine.

Phyllis D. Light brings her wealth of experience, having utilized a broad spectrum of preparations and dosages, ranging from tea to tincture to capsules. Her practice, situated in a "dry county," embraces the tradition of using herbs primarily in the form of teas.

In contrast, Matthew Wood offers insights into his extensive history of employing small or "drop" doses of tinctures AKA nudge-opathy. His approach harks back to the eclectic methodology, rooted in the nineteenth-century schools of botanical medicine.
