Podcast Show 180: Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Justin Ehrlich LAc

Western herbalists have long used energetics to describe how herbs work. While we have a long practical and energetic tradition routed in European medicine, we often feel called to cultures with much longer, better-documented traditions to inform, inspire and guide us int the healing arts. today, we are talking with Justin Ehrlich, a practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine and Licenced Acupuncturist about following that call.
