Corolla has a few excellent restaurants also, most notably Mexican and seafood. In Corolla, there are many fun activities, and if time allows, it is worth spending an extra day.
There is Historic Corolla, with the original lighthouse that can be climbed. Visitors to this Outer Banks attraction can climb the winding staircase, steps in all, to the top of the lighthouse for a panoramic view of Currituck Sound, the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Outer Banks.
Farther north in Corolla, the main road ends and the beach becomes the road. This is the home of the genetically pure Corolla Wild Horses. One striking similarity to the Arabian ancestry is the number of vertebra one less than most breeds which occurs in the Banker Horse Breed.
Their even temperament, endurance, size, and the startling beauty which crops up frequently in the Banker Horses all point strongly to their dramatic history…these are the remnants of once numerous herds of Spanish stock which ran free along the sandy islands of our coast.
There are multiple tour companies that will take you up to see this area it requires a 4WD vehicle , but please take a tour with Corolla Outback Adventures.
All in all, we plan to present an overall holistic experience to our fellow veterinarians. While teaching Western Veterinary Herbal Medicine, we want to provide you not only alternative ways to care for your patients, but also additional ways to care for ourselves. This lecture will go over the basics of medicinal use of Western Herbs. We will discuss how herbs can be used in terms of physiology, treatment modalities, safety and interactions.
We will go over how to read a monograph, and there will be a couple of case examples. This lecture will go through all the ways herbs can be administered, with details of how to prepare and administer. Herbs can be dispensed as tinctures, teas, tablets and capsules, powders and in food. Topically, herbs can be applied as a dry powder or in oil or salves. This excursion is to the Elizabethan Gardens for a guided herb walk and personal nature meditation. The Gardens start with a proper English herb garden, and you will be pleased with how many non-culinary medicinal herbs are included.
Then we will progress through the Gardens while learning about many native and beautiful species of plants. We will end in the Sunken Garden where there are many beautiful spots to meditate with the plants. The origins of herbal medicine are from native cultures around the world. Researchers have shown that most native cultures decide which herbs work for which conditions based on taste and smell organoleptics.
This lecture will go through how a few specific native cultures choose their herbs and why, as well as discuss how pharmaceuticals have coopted herbal chemicals for allopathic drugs. We will discuss the pros and cons of traditional herbal use versus pharmaceutical use.
In this lecture, we will explain groups of herbs and their uses based on their organoleptics. We will discuss the 5 common flavors described in herbal medicine, and taste examples of each flavor. We will also learn to discern the quality of herbs based on their organoleptics. This lab will be a hands-on interactive demonstration of the preparation of multiple forms of herbal preparations, including tincture-making, types of tea preparation, oil and salve preparation, and more.
Licensed herbal medicine must have a product license or marketing authorization. British Pharmacopoeia contains approximately monographs whereby all medicines and health care products are regulated [ 31 ]. CMMs are classified under the herbal and complementary medicines division in the British Pharmacopoeia. At present, the British Pharmacopoeia contains 13 monographs of traditional herbal medicines which facilitate assessment of registration applications and gives a reference standard to inform the manufacturers and importers of the UK regulations.
For the first time, a monograph of Radix et Rhizoma Glycyrrhizae Gancao , Liquorice root , a Chinese medicinal herb, was introduced into the British Pharmacopoeia. Furthermore, collaboration has been established between the British and Chinese Pharmacopoeias in order to exchange information on quality standards for medicines, develop test methods, identify common adulterants or impurities and to authenticate herbal materials [ 32 ]. A manufacturer must guarantee that the product is safe and properly labeled.
While approval from the Food and Drug Administration is not required, new dietary ingredients are required for pre-market safety review [ 33 ]. Overall, the regulation for dietary supplements is less stringent than that for drugs.
AHP offers standard herbal monographs whereby a genus and species may be identified according to the Lingnean system of botanical classification and nomenclatures [ 34 ]. AHP also produces monographs on herbs and other botanical ingredients, not necessarily already in the AHP [ 35 ]. AHP has published several monographs on botanicals in its dietary supplement section [ 34 ]. The present article provides an overview on the regulations of CMMs in various countries and regions. Each individual regulation system focuses on specific issues.
In the United Sates, regulation places its emphasis on source herbal materials. In the European Union, procedures focus on authentication of herbal materials.
A Technical Guide was issued with all technical details on the scientific works developed for those medicinal materials under regulations. In Australia, TGA regulates all the registered products in terms of the quality, safety and efficacy. In the UK, regulation focuses on safety evaluation. In China, the regulation is directed to proper formulation of CMM products according to traditional Chinese medicine theory. Under the present systems herbal manufacturers can submit their products according to the ease of getting registration in the regions where they can market or sell their products.
One of the Chinese medicine practices is composite herbal formulae Fufang for individualized treatment. If the quality of CMMs is not standardized, treatment variability will exist in addition to other variables.
It is imperative, therefore, for regulatory agencies worldwide to set up harmonized regulatory controls over the manufacture and trade of CMMs. All authors took part in the discussion before drafting the present article. KC provided information on current aspects in various sections. All authors read and approved the final version of the manuscript.
Valuable discussions and information obtained from the International Advisory Board meeting of the Hong Kong Chinese Materia Medica Standards project held in are gratefully acknowledged.
