You will learn to use hundreds of different herbs and how they can be combined with medicinal mushrooms and nutritional supplements for each organ system.

Then possible causes of the body's dysfunction are presented, for example environmental factors and nutritional deficiencies.
Then follow extensive descriptions of treatments related to the use of herbs and nutrition.
