Have you ever wondered what an alterative is? What a rubefacient is? In herbal medicine, our plants are classified by their actions, also known as the effect they exert over our physiology. Having a working knowledge of herbal actions will help you navigate the herb books that you read, the classes that you take, and give you a much more solid foundation for understanding the way herbs work in the human body. Clinical herbalist Betsy Miller will discuss herbal actions, how they relate to herbal energetics and provide examples of herbs for each action.
