Podcast Show 181: Herb Lab – Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

After an interview with Justin Ehrlich, a practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist, Sue drills Candace about some of the herbs he brought up. Candace gently explains how a handful of these herbs work together to heal common ailments. Sue throws in the news of a discovery of a new organ interstitium, which may add to our understanding as to how acupuncture works.
