Chinese Herbal Strategies for Cold and Flu
Traditional Chinese Medicine offers elegant and nuanced perspectives on how to approach self-care during a cold or flu. Presented first by Zhang Zhong Jing in the late Han Dynasty, circa 20-200 A.D, a teaching called “The Six Stages” serves as an excellent guide for those looking to choose effective herbal support. In this class, we will explore the Six Stages in detail and learn how to choose the most effective herbs for each stage. In addition, we will discuss how the five Chinese elements affect our health throughout the seasons, as well as illuminate some amazing botanical allies specific to the autumn and winter seasons.
