Course Overview
This is the webinar to help you understand how to use granules effectively with your patients. Granules are a relatively new development in Chinese herbal medicine, and few practitioners have been exposed to consistent training on key issues such as dosage.

This one-hour webinar will examine several different styles of granule use, including the Taiwanese method of combining whole formulas and the mainland Chinese method of building a formula from scratch with single herb extracts.

The advantages and disadvantages of each of these approaches will be assessed, leaving attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the main clinical trends and challenges in the granule world.
  • Granule dosage and formulation strategies
  • How to overcome challenges unique to granules, such as the effective use of minerals and gelatins
  • Research on the effects of Pao Zhi, manufacturing differences, and comparisons of granules with raw herbs

    What People Are Saying

    If you use granules, then you really should look at doing some of Eric Brand's webinars. Super articulate and a wealth of knowledge.

    John T.- Australia

    This course provided clarity into dispensing granules in terms of recommended dosages, converting raw herb weight to granule weight either in single herb dosage or formulas, and offers a variety of ways of dispensing granules through different trends from various Asian countries. Very useful information that eliminates confusion when dispensing.

    *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section.
