Sperb’s Herbs Ep 47 – Yin Yang Huo (Epimedi)

This episode covers the Chinese herb Yin Yang Huo (Epimedi). This one of my favorite Chinese herbs: yín yáng huò or epimedium. The origin story for this herb gives the fifth grader in me giggles. Despite that, this is a very interesting, powerful, and useful herb. And as always, we will look at something a little different…today, we will look at the four great masters of the Jin-Yuan dynasties.

Each episode of the podcast will go into great depth about a single herb or formula. Besides covering the basics of Chinese herbology including category, and functions, we will explore the history, quality, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each herb. And then there is always something a little quirky about an episode. Please join us as we learn about Yin Yang Huo (Epimedi).
