Thank you for your valuable input MojoMoves! I love learning about Eastern Medicine :)
Both fresh and dried contain potent nutrients so whichever is easiest for you!
Dried spices are great too - they are more concentrated so you'd use a bit less than if it were fresh. Usually it is a tsp dry = 1 Tbsp fresh; however some do not fit the rule like turmeric - so experimenting is key.
