White sage is burned and used for purification (called "smudging") in many Native American traditions. Did you know that when taken internally, white sage is also a powerful and safe medicinal herb, with actions similar to some of our Chinese herbal counterparts? The advantage is that white sage grows wildly and abundantly in the U.S. and is easily wildcrafted and harvested. A perfect complement to Making Moxa, this course will empower you to start looking in your own backyard instead of relying on the importation of Chinese herbs for the benefit and well-being of your patients. This course is available for continuing education credit for California, Florida, and NCCAOM.
