Speaker: Paul Bergner. Herbal medicines used for the digestive tract have, in the terminology of classical medicine, characteristic qualities of hot, cold, moistening, or drying. Giving GI herbs without matching their humoral or energetic qualities to the presenting symptoms of the patient can lead to patient discomfort, aggravated conditions, and therapeutic failures. We describe the signs and symptoms of the humors (hot, cold, etc) in the digestive tract and a materia medica for the GI tract, with formulation strategies to prevent adverse humoral effects.
