Trapper, I'm sorry that I may have misunderstood you. I thought you were saying that any new forum on herbology might already be wrapped up.
If I get another forum, it'll be fun.
Last summer I was invited by my mentor to go to Berkeley for a refresher course of integrating Chinese principles with my western herbs. It was given by Peter Holmes who wrote the book Energetics of Western Herbs. When I called him with a question about constitutions last spring, he said that his book I had been using for the past 20 years had been updated 3 times. That's when he invited me to Berkeley. These studies put my practice to a nearly 99% success rate by straightening me out on a few matters. Anywho . . . that's where my growth has taken me. I'll look forward to helping anyone with information.
