Aconite plays a central role in the classical materia medica, yet is rarely used anymore by Chinese herbalists in modern clinical practice. Dr. Liu Lihong, China's most prominent proponent of yang tonic therapy and a formal disciple of the Fire Spirit Lineage of Southwest China illuminates the rich story of aconite in this lecture. He explains the reasons why it has become a forgotten herb, and what needs to be done to reclaim it as one of the most powerful healing substances in the treatment of difficult and recalcitrant diseases.
