Herbal Sites

  • Rocky Mountain Herbal Institute
    Although this site is mainly intended as a commercial site from the Rocky Mountain Herbal Institute (RMHI), it contains several very good excerpts and articles from their publications on Chinese Herbal Medicine. Their Health Sciences Kiosk is especially recommendable, because it contains several very interesting clinical case studies, quizzes and essays. Now also includes free access to the first 6 chapters of their highly acclaimed textbook on TCM and free access to their online database with over 220 herbs
