Learning to Listen: How Much of an Herb Should You Use?
Low dosing and high dosing with herbal medicine are two practices as old as herbalism itself.
So which one is better, and which should you use in your practice? As you will see, there are unique benefits attributed to both, as well as circumstances where one may be favored over the other. In this week's episode you'll learn:
-Low dosing and high dosing are two valid and well practiced methods in herbalism.
-Low dosing focuses on subtly shifting the vital body by using 1-3 drops of herbal medicine.
-High dosing focuses on generating a physiological response in the body by using higher quantities of herbal medicine, such as 2-5ml
-The goal of both is to help the body achieve a state of balance and wellbeing. -Although you can choose to work solely with one method, both can be employed to achieve a holistic practice with wonderful results.

ABOUT THE PLANT PATH
The Plant Path is a window into the world of herbal medicine. With perspectives gleaned from traditional Western herbalism, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Alchemy, Medical Astrology, and traditional cultures from around the world, The Plant Path provides unique insights, skills and strategies for the practice of true holistic herbalism. From clinical to spiritual perspectives, we don't just focus on what herbs are "good for," but rather who they are as intelligent beings, and how we can work with them to heal us physically and consciously evolve.
Sajah Popham is the author of Evolutionary Herbalism and the founder of the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, where he trains herbalists in a holistic system of plant medicine that encompasses clinical Western herbalism, medical astrology, Ayurveda, and spagyric alchemy.
His mission is to develop a comprehensive approach that balances the science and spirituality of plant medicine, focusing on using plants to heal and rejuvenate the body, clarify the mind, open the heart, and support the development of the soul. This is only achieved through understanding and working with the chemical, energetic, and spiritual properties of the plants. His teachings embody a heartfelt respect, honor and reverence for the vast intelligence of plants in a way that empowers us to look deeper into the nature of our medicines and ourselves.
He lives on a homestead in the foothills of Mt. Baker Washington with his wife Whitney where he teaches, consults clients, and prepares spagyric herbal medicines.
