Grasshopper asked Karen:  What is your favorite herbal formula and why?

My favorite herbal formula is Gan Mai Da Zao Tang. Simple, yes. And that is why I love it. So many patients come into my office with a long list of supplements, herbs, and medications that they are currently taking.  I have seen the simplicity of this Rx help to shift patients in a positive direction without adding yet more complex pharmacology to their systems. Sometimes even in medicine, less is more.
