In this course you will learn the tools and skill set to assess and address the client with a primary complaint of fatigue. We’ll cover the pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, and root causes of fatigue, and learn methods for using herbal medicine and formulation to improve sleep and correct sleep debt. The categories of adaptogens and Chinese tonic herbs are covered in depth. Included is a critical view of the contemporary concept of the adaptogen, with illustrations of how the misuse of this herbal category can promote burnout rather than relieve it.
