Assume the role of an apprentice herbalist who is working with an experienced herbalist in an integrative clinic that caters to an underserved immigrant section of the population.
It is winter, and people’s bodies are adapting to the changes in season, temperature, and other shifts in environment. A large portion of the patients seen at the clinic have come down with specific symptoms associated with flu and/or cold. These patients have requested herbs be used to treat their symptom patterns as opposed to standard pharmaceutical treatments.
You have been tasked by your mentor herbalist to select an herb that coincides and opposes the patterns presented by each of the patients requesting herbal interventions. Review the HCS339 final paper patient information document that includes specific information critical to creating the profiles for each of the three patients.
Using the Information attached and supporting your statements utilizing a minimum of eight scholarly resources, six of which must be from the Ashford University Library, create a profile, prescribe an herb from the sedatives or astringents categories, and create an evaluation for each of the patients.

Differentiate between potential constitutions (temperaments) and identify, based on the information, which primary constitution (temperament) best fits the patient.
Differentiate between qualities of tissue states and describe what would typically be seen in the diseased tissue for the patient’s identified constitution (temperament).
