Thank you!

Herbs for new practitioners
by: Lisa Hanfileti, LAc

Hi Amanda, this is a great question! I wish I had taken the time to think this through when I opened my practice. I envisioned a wonderful herbal dispensary with both granules and patents and ended up only prescribing patents. A lot of my granules expired before I ever used them and I wasted a good chunk 'o changes on inventory. I will tell you this... 14 years in practice, I use a lot of Evergreen herbs for musculoskeletal/pain and ITM and/or Blue Poppy for colds, flus, infections, and general Qi & Blood building.

I encourage you to join the ABA (Acupuncture Business Academy) private Facebook page where other acupuncturists will surely have great answers for your question and hopefully give you a good list of "must have" herbs and formulas.
